Another blog message from Fort Myers plastic surgeon, Dr. Robert Brueck MD FACS.

Life is always filled with risks.

Now we learn that breast implants and paint ball don’t mix. A woman playing paint ball in the United Kingdom was hit in the chest with a paint ball and her “implant exploded”.

If it was saline and it ruptured, it would deflate almost immediately, so the person would know it. However, a silicone rupture would be harder to detect because the “capsule” would contain the silicone in the ruptured implant.

Now, if you have implants and you want to go paintballing, you have to sign a special release
AND have extra padding.

Hope the air conditioning is working that day!
