The quest for larger breasts has been around for decades. In the late 1800s, women would have paraffin injected directly into their breasts for better curves. Later in the 1920s, doctors attempted to boost volume by injecting fat deposits transplanted from other areas of the body. Sponges were even used in the 1950s, and prior to that women would opt to have silicon directly injected into their breasts. It wasn’t until 1961 that the first silicon breast implant hit the market, but these early implants were prone to rupture.

Concerns over breast implants rupturing and leaking fluid into the body are not new, and in fact were once the cause for recalls of certain materials used in the implants. Yet technology is always improving, especially in the world of cosmetic surgery, and this is helping women feel safer about their breast implants.

New manufacturing processes are creating “perforation safe layer implants.” While no implant can be deemed 100 percent rupture proof, these implants have 16 to 18 layers, including three barrier layers. This protects them from perforation during surgery, making a future rupture much less likely. Inside the implants is an ISO-approved gel, and the filling is inserted patch-free, adding even more protection against rupture.
