This page compromises a working list of all the heavy metals that the manufacturers & FDA list as part of the implants (saline and silicone). Not all heavy metals are in every implant, but all of these heavy metals are listed as part of different implants. To save you time I've provided links to the information regarding each metal or chemical. This is not comprehensive, there are more that will be added as I have time.You can locate the information on the Summary of Safety & Effectiveness (SSED) Data for each implant type on the FDA website or the direct links are available on my FDA Evidence page, usually page 5-8 list the items specific to that implant type(s).
