I am 69 years old. In 1966 I had silicone injections in my breasts. Other than scar tissue developing I have no problems.

I am very healthy with only the scar tissue development over the years. This was done by a board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Richard Aronsohn... After reading about the dangers of liquid silicone, should I seek medical attention ?

Removing silicone from the breasts.

Silicone does cause problems. I would obtain a breast MRI and discuss options for removal.

Silicone In Breasts and Other Fillers

Silicone has risks of injection that many people know about.  If you are concerned please see a plastic surgeon.  It sounds as if you are doing fine and have no reason to do a consultation but if you do , please see someone who has experience in traeting silicone complications.  Best, Dr. Emer.
