Yes. There was some panic about them in the 80's, and scare-mongers will still mention various fears here and there. But most of it has been baseless. Some of it might have even been motivated by a certain bias.

Any surgery is going to have some risks, of course. But implants used in the US are approved by the FDA and the FDA is cautious (arguably, they're overly cautious).

Talk to your doctor and he'll tell you what the real risks are for you as an individual.

I have had my implants for 5 years now, and have not had any trouble at all.

I definitely would not advise anyone on getting breast implants. Too many risks and way too much money!

Different kinds of breast implants include silicone, saline, smooth type breast implants, textured breast implants, round breast implants, and anatomical breast implants.

Yes, assuming you have saline implants (not silicone). You can talk with your doctor if you have any specific concerns.

I wouldn't. I think the silcone used in the implants is not safe. There are women who have gotten them and had too many problems.

Anna Kooiman has not publicly declared that she had breast implants although it is rumoured that she had breast implants.

She never ever did have breast implants done on her.
