Augmentation mammaplasty is one of the most frequent surgical procedures in plastic surgery. The indications and techniques are precise and should be closely observed. Silicone gel implants are still used in Europe and multiple epidemiologic studies have failed to demonstrate an association between silicone breast implants and autoimmune disease. After a short historical review, we will present the indications, techniques and complications. As capsular contracture is the main complication, we shall discuss the latest issues. Data was collected on a group of patients using a systematic questionnaire and clinical follow-up. Patients' satisfaction is optimal in the absence of capsular contracture. We are convinced that silicone breast implants have an appropriate texture and give excellent aesthetic results. We are satisfied with silicone breast implants and continue to think that this device has an appropriate texture and gives excellent aesthetic results.
