What causes a breast implant to rupture or leak?

Saline breast implants deflate when the saline solution leaks either through an unsealed or damaged valve, or through a break in the implant shell. Implant deflation can occur immediately or progressively over a period of days and is noticed by loss of size or shape of the implant.

The causes of deflation or leakage include damage by surgical instruments during surgery, overfilling or under-filling of the implant with saline solution, capsular contracture, stresses such as trauma or intense physical manipulation, excessive compression during mammographic imaging, umbilical incision placement, and other unknown reasons.
