What are Silicone Implants?
The words Silicon and Silicone are often used to describe the substance used to make implants; however, in fact they are two different things.
Silicon is the element and Silicone is the gel containing the element. Implants are made from Silicone.
Probably the most common Silicone Implant is the Silicone breast implant; however, silicone implants can also be used in many other parts of the body for both medical and cosmetic reasons.
Silicone breast implants have been popular since the 1960’s as silicone gel is very similar to the texture of breast tissue and gives a natural appearance.
Injured by Silicone Implants?
With any type of surgery, things can go wrong, such as problems with the anaesthetic, unexpected scarring or infections; however, one of the most common problems with silicone implants is that they can leak or rupture.
When silicone implants leak into the body, it can be very hard to detect as the appearance of the area does not normally change.
Silicone inside the body is toxic and is a carcinogenic substance (cancer causing), it is known to damage the immune system, kill cells and produce silicosis.
If you have been injured by Silicone implants or any other medicine or medical device, you may be able to make a personal injury claim for compensation.
