Woman Saved Implants Husband
October 5, 2011 by staff
The woman, whose name was not released, was stabbed in the left chest of her husband during an argument. But the knife did not reach her heart, and instead stayed in the silicone “armor,” the Pravda.ru Russian news site.
Ironically, the woman’s implants five years ago at the request of her husband.
The implant did not leak or lose its shape, the report said. But she has since had replaced it with a new one.
“It could have been leaking into the capsule,” said Dr. Mihyar Choi, assistant professor in the department of plastic surgery at NYU Langone Medical Center, which describes the thin membrane of scar tissue that forms naturally around breast implants. “But you do not want to ignore leaks, even if it is within the capsule.”
Silicone implants can be trampled or thrown against a door without breaking, said Choi. However, lacerations and long term wear and tear can cause the leaking silicone gel inside the capsule or in breast tissue, causing an immune response that can lead to tenderness, and nodules.
“It’s not pop, not life threatening,” he said. Choi. “But I definitely want to have it replaced in a timely manner.”
Choi recommends that women with implants to go for annual checkups to ensure they are free of leaks.
The Russian woman is not the first to be saved by her breast augmented. In 2010, a size D implant breast credited with saving a woman from Los Angeles of a bullet. At that time, lethal force as an expert witness Scott Reitz said it was possible the silicone implant blocked the shot, but urged women to keep the implants for self defense.
“I do not mean a bub job is the equivalent of a bulletproof vest,” said Reitz Los Angeles Times. “So do not go getting breast enhancements as a means to deflect a bullet entry possible.”
