Silsdicone breast implants have been restricted for the past 14 years, after thousands of women sued the manufacturers for cancers, arthritis, and various other diseases and injuries related to their breast implants.  During this 14 year period, only women who had injuries, deformities, or mastectomies and required reconstruction were permitted to get silicone breast implants.  These patients have been carefully studied, and improvements have been made to the implant design.  80000 women will be studied over several years, to evaluate the long term safety of the implants, and to identify their long term safety.
