The shell or bag is a solid silicone polymer and the filler is plain saline (salt water, IV Fluid). If a saline implant goes flat or leaks, don’t worry. It is not an emergency and you will be fine. Your body will absorb the saline as a natural fluid. Obviously your breast that leaked, popped, or deflated will be flat. All USA based implant companies offer excellent warranties on their breast implants. Commonly it’s a 10 year warranty for Saline Breast implants and a lifetime warranty on silicone breast implants. Replacing a deflated breast implant requires a return a operating room where a new implant is replaced for the deflated implants. We use breast Implants from Mentor and Allergan Corporations. They offer high quality implants and a fair warranty to customers. If you implants are over 5 years old, you may want to consider replacing both at the same time.
