The material that encloses the silicone gel is quite strong. It would take a severe impact to the implant for it to rupture. Also see the link below for more information on Butt Implants.

The buttock implants available in the United States are made of a solid silicone polymer.  Even if the implants are punctured or cut, they will not leak or break.  Best wishes.
