This anatomical implant was originally placed in 1997. Due to the dark yellow color inside the implant it is clear the implant has been ruptured for quite some time.
When implants rupture, it is important to have them replaced as soon as possible to avoid excessive scarring in the breasts. If too much scar tissue has accumulated around the deflated implant, it becomes difficult to create a normal breast shape in the future.
Therefor its important to know the signs of a ruptured implant such as, painful to touch, visible asymmetry or loss of integrity to the bag.
