Breast augmentation is being done increasingly, not only for women who consider their breasts too small but also for those with breast asymmetry, and post-mastectomy patients with reconstruction. It appears inevitable that traumatologists will have to evaluate injury to an augmented breast in a patient who has sustained blunt chest trauma. This paper discusses the differential diagnosis and treatment of implant rupture, hematoma, and spherical capsular contracture as a result of trauma.
