Ruptured Silicone implant explanted due to car accident. These implants were put in in1974, 35 years ago, and when I had the roll over car accident, the 3rd day woke up in pain and with redness similar to the photo. That was 04/09/09 and by the time the MRI was done ir was a month of walking around with a ruptured breast.

He's out of the office next week so I wanted to understand what might happen?

Will my body heal with the silicone leakage inside or does it have to come out by cutting it out or is there another procedure that can be done to save the breast?

The issue is the age of the implants and the fact that her silicone implants are obsolete, not that she has silicone. Obviously if she had an accident the implants need to be removed.
