Breast Implant Ruptured in Less Than 3 Years, Scheduled for Removal

I had breast reduction and then implants in Jan 07. One week ago my left implant ruptured.

My recovery experience has not been good since the 07 surgery. I am scheduled to have both the ruptured implant and the other implant removed in the morning because I do not have the funds to pay for surgeon to fix my left breast.

I am scared of looking like a monster. I don't think the implant should have ruptured in less than three years time of surgery. Why would the implant rupture?

My breast implant ruptured last week after only 5 years. Most implants have a warranty from the manufacturer. I only had to pay 500 for the operation to remove and insert a new implant, and the new implant was covered at no additional cost from the manufacturer. I am surprised the doctor did not mention this to you?????? why would he use an implant that was not covered, especially for the safety of his clients.
