Could this mean that the implant has ruptured?
Thank you for your question. Occasional leaking is not acceptable. Please book an appointment with your surgeon to be assessed in person. Best,

It sounds like you have wound separation which should be addressed by your plastic surgeon as soon as possible. the issue is bacterial contamination of your implant if there is a bona fida leak of fluid from your wound. Good luck...

Thank you for your question. I'm not sure what you mean by, "leaking." Certainly, if you notice a change in how your implants look or feel you should let your Plastic Surgeon know and schedule an assessment.
All the best
What do you mean by leaking? Discharge from the nipple? You should be seen by your doctor to be evaluated in person. Best of luck.
An exam and consultation with your/a plastic surgeon is recommended to determine what is going on and if any studies or treatments are indicated. You can also discuss your options and expectations.
Thank you for your question.I’m sorry to hear that you are having pain but the cause of this can’t really be determined without a physical examination from your doctor and possibly an ultrasound of the breast. If you feel that the implant has started leaking, I would certainly go get an evaluation as you may need a revision to take out the ruptured implant and place a new one in. I hope this helps.
Best of luck!

With what you are describing, no online consultation can suffice. You need to be seen by your plastic surgeon so he or she can perform an in-person exam. This is the only way to determine what is going on, in combination with imaging studies.
Best of luck!

I am not sure what you mean by "leaking" when you bend over. However, only saline implants leak. As they leak, they also become smaller. I would suggest asking your doctor to check you. You may also need a mammagram and /or ultrasound.
Thank you for your question. It is best to see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon for an examination and checkup. He/she may wish to have you undergo an MRI or ultrasound to evaluate the implants, but you should see a PRS first.Benjamin J. Cousins MD
This symptoms you describe warrant a visit to your surgeon for an examination. Be prepared that other tests may need to be performed in order to accurately determine if a rupture occurred, as well as help determine the cause of the pain you are experiencing.
