SINCE you asked, according to the US Food and Drug Administration, here are some possible reasons why a silicone breast implant would rupture:
"* Damage during implantation or during other surgical procedures
* Folding or wrinkling of the implant shell
* Trauma or other excessive force to the chest
* Compression of the breast during mammography. (Click here to know more about breast implants.)
