Abstract

This concerns a case of a patient who had breast augmentation, and 6 years later, a routine mammogram/ultrasound examination showed a very small amount of fluid, ‘presumably silicone’, to be present in each pocket. There was no history of trauma.

The contributors discussed whether or not ruptured implant is present or whether these are seromas and how to treat these problems.
