Abstract: Background: Silicone implants were developed in 1962 for breast augmentation and became essential in reconstruction after mastectomy. Silicone “bleeding” has been described from both ruptured and intact implants and can induce disseminated granulomatosis due to the component's high fat solubility. If not adequately treated, they can lead to disastrous cosmetic and functional consequences.

“…Affected patients usually describe single or multiple indurated, palpable, or painful nodules or masses in the breast, with a range of sizes. [72][73][74][75] Ipsilateral, or rarely contralateral, regional lymph nodes (internal mammary chain, axillary, and supraclavicular) may also be affected. 72,74,76,77 Imaging Silicone granulomas are often associated with implant rupture.…”
