I had Silimed cohesive gel textured high profile 350cc implants placed in March 2011. I am wondering how much does one implant weigh in US measurements ( pounds & ounces ) ?
How Much Does a Silimed Breast Implant Weigh?

Breast implant weight
The weight of a breast implant is dependent on its size. In general, each cc is equal to one gram. So, a 350cc implant weighs about 350 grams. There are 454 grams in a pound, so a 350cc implant weighs 350/454= 0.78 lbs; or just over 3/4 of a pound.

Dear Just5kidz, A 350cc cohesive silicone gel-filled implant should weight approximately 3/4 of a pound. Doing the math, two implants should add about 1.5lbs to your weight.

The weight of an implant is determined by its volume. A 350cc breast implant weighs about 350 mg or 3/4 of a pound.

Silicone weighs less than water
350cc implant weighs 0.77 lbs.
The calculation is as follows: 350cc = 350 grams.
454 grams = 1 pound.
Thus, 350/454 = 0.77 pounds. two implants will weigh 1.54 pounds.
Remember, after surgery there is much retained fluid and swelling, which takes several weeks to be eliminated from your body. If you stand on a digital scale the morning of surgery, and again the night after surgery, you can gain as much as 5-7 pounds, most of which is swelling (fluid) weight.
