Ruptures or leakage in implants are faced by some women after the procedure. A significant blow or impact on the chest is the reason for this condition. Deflation of the breast is the sign of an implant rupture.

This though occurs faster with saline implants than with silicone breast implants.

Capsular Contracture:

Capsular contracture is a potential complication that may lead to breast implant revision. During contracture, scar tissue forms around the breast implant and begins to squeeze and compress the implant. This causes severe pain and also poor implant shape. The revision surgery will replace the implants so that capsular contracture does not occur again. 

Implant rippling:

Rippling in implants is another possible reason you might want to get them replaced. This condition generally occurs with saline implants and patients with thin tissue. Switching to silicone may be a smart move for you. Silicone rarely produces this effect.
