BackgroundIn November 2006, the FDA approved the Premarket Approval PMA applications for the round, cohesive, silicone gel-filled breast implants of Mentor (MemoryGel) and Allergan. Since that time, the devices have been widely available to plastic surgeons and their use is rapidly eclipsing that of the saline breast implants. Patients in the Core clinical studies supporting these approvals continue to be followed through for 10 years, with comprehensive annual patient and physician-reported… 
MemoryGel Breast Implants: Final Safety and Efficacy Results after 10 Years of Follow-Up
TLDR
The results of this study demonstrate that MemoryGel Implants are safe and effective for use in women undergoing breast augmentation or reconstruction.
Eight-Year Safety Data for Round and Anatomical Silicone Gel Breast Implants
TLDR
This multicenter clinical study involving Eurosilicone's silicone gel breast implants in both round and shaped profiles demonstrates an excellent safety and efficacy profile through 8 years.
Mentor Contour Profile Gel Implants: Clinical Outcomes at 6 Years
TLDR
At 6 years postoperatively, Contour Profile Gel breast implants were found to be effective and have an acceptable safety profile in women undergoing breast augmentation, reconstruction, and revision surgery.
BellaGel breast implant: 4-year results of a prospective cohort study
TLDR
The effectiveness and safety of BellaGel implants are supported and procedural pain was the only complication considered device-related, apart from capsular contracture, in the ongoing implant study.
Ten-Year Results From the Natrelle 410 Anatomical Form-Stable Silicone Breast Implant Core Study
TLDR
This 10-year prospective trial demonstrated the long-term safety and effectiveness of Natrelle 410 anatomical form-stable implants, as the complication rates were low and the satisfaction rates were high.
A 10-Year Prospective Study of Implant-Based Breast Augmentation and Reconstruction
TLDR
A 10-year observational study conducted in France found an excellent safety profile and very low capsular contracture rate with breast augmentation and reconstruction using Sebbin round silicone gel implants.

TLDR
PIP's rupture prevalence is reaffirms to be higher than comparative breast prostheses, but also records the media's beneficial effect in improving recall and Ultrasonography, at least in PIP-augmented women, seems to be a more accurate tool than previously measured, especially in the presence of rupture.
[PIP breast implants: a series of 217 explants].
TLDR
A retrospective study of all patients who underwent explantation between May 2010 and January 2012, corresponding to 434 explanted prostheses and 217 patients, all operated on by the same surgeon, found that 38 implants had ruptured, with a low false-negative rate of ultrasonography.
Review of 1,447 Breast Augmentation Patients Using PERTHESE Silicone Implants
TLDR
This review demonstrates that PERTHESE silicone breast implants are safe, maybe easier to introduce than other implants, and result in a high level of surgeon and patient satisfaction.
The PIP mammary prosthesis: a product recall study.

TLDR
This cohort correlates reduced implant longevity with each successive year from 2000 and no cases of ALCL have been diagnosed, but the overall patient rupture rate for the PIP implant is 15.9-33.8%.
