New silicone implants are more cohesive. Are they still as cohesive at body temperature as they are at room temperature?
1 year ago
Silicone implants may eventually rupture, while they are more cohesive now than they were in previous years, the evidence I have seen online are all done at room temperature. Considering the body is a higher temperature and an implant may rupture within the body, does the difference in temperature impact the implant's cohesion? Are there any plastic surgeons willing to show the evidence? Please and thank you.

The new Cohesive Gel Implants remain equally cohesive under normal body temperature. It would take temperatures above those consistent with life to break them down.
