It is recommended that if you have undergone breast augmentation, you undergo an MRI scan every 3 years to exclude a ruptured implant. An MRI scan is the most accurate way of diagnoses an implant rupture.
The treatment for ruptured breast implants is similar to that of capsular contraction treatment. It involves surgical removal of the capsule, exchange of the existing ruptured implants for implants with lower risk of capsule development and rupture. It also often involves placing the implants in a new pocket underneath the muscle. An additional treatment may involve fat transfer to the breast with fat taken from liposuction from another part of the body.
If a patient wants to remove the implants completely without replacing them, they can opt for this. They must accept a smaller breast size and may require a breast lift with or without the addition of fat transfer.
