For a while, breast surgery using silicone implants has had a bad rap. But over the past decade, many studies have been performed to determine whether silicone-filled breast implants were associated with cancer in any way. After years of research, these studies have all concluded that there is no convincing evidence that silicone prosthetics are associated with cancer or connective tissue disease.
Ever since these studies have been released and silicone implants have been reapproved by the FDA, women across the world have been flocking back to the silicone-filled option for their breast surgery. One of its benefits over saline-filled implants is that silicone tends to have a more natural look and feel.
