Physical Attack 6 Weeks After Implants

Implant damage after trauma
If you are concerned about your implants, then you should have them checked out by your doctor. Sounds like you might want to get rid of the partner as well.
Disruption of implants from physical trauma
The cohesive gel implants are quite resilient devices and are not prone to rupture from blunt trauma. However, an MRI may be advised if the soreness continues. The larger issue here is your relationship with an abusive partner. I encourage you to seek help to get out of this type of relationship.
Implant rupture after chest trauma
It is HIGHLY unllikely that your implant would rupture from such a blow. However, anything is possible and it would be best to be evaluated and monitored. Utlimately, the best non-invasive test to evaluate implant integrity or lack of such is an MRI. You may want to consider this for peace of mind.
