After years of being unhappy with my breast, having breast augmentation made me feel confident once again. I was so happy when I was able to have them done I did not think about the fact that something might have gone wrong. I should have not gone in blindly regarding the warranty on the implants from the manufacturer. I am now being told by my doctor that I will have to incur some, if all of the cost of having them replaced.My saline implants ruptured after 2yrs and 6 mos. Unfortunately I am unable to locate any documents relating to the terms of the contract which my doctor had given to me. Do I have to have to pay to have the implants replaced? Do I reported my situation to the FDA in case of manufacturer defect?

I will be able to make my decision after my issue has been remedied.
