Question Question on breast silicone implants

Hello,

My question is, my sister had breast silicone implants a little over 21 years ago. I'm not sure if she ever changed them out every 10 years like I have heard should be done and she is under going a modified radical mastectomy w/flap next week. I am wondering if possibly her implants had anything to do with this. If anyone could shed some light on this, it would greatly help me understand this. Also, with this proceedure, is an ICU stay usually involved knowing that a head if time? Do they remove one or both breasts? Do they still have to have more surgeries after this procedure?

Thank you for the information.

Re: Question on breast silicone implants

Its highly unlikely that the implants had anything to do with needing a radical mastectomy. Why is she having her breasts removed? Normally, this is done only when Cancer cells are present.
I hope she recovers quickly from the surgery...

She had one removed because she did have cancer but now she wants both removed because of the Angelina Jolie story.
