Replacement of Ruptured Left PIP Implant that was Undetected by an MRI Scan

This patient received PIP implants at another clinic in 2005. The implants were not sitting in the correct position due to muscle contraction, which was pulling on the breasts and causing the nipples to rotate too far inwards.
She came to Aurora Clinics to have her PIP implants replaced as a precaution, even though an MRI scan had not picked up any ruptures.
When we removed the implants, we found the right implant had gel bleed, and the left implant was completely ruptured, resulting in a creamy fluid inside the breast cavity.
The area was thoroughly cleaned and new high-quality implants were inserted to give the patient a better all-round appearance.
