Paintball shot ruptures breast implant

25th August 2011

A 26-year-old woman has had one of her silicone gel breast implants ruptured after it was hit by a paintball shot during a game at an outdoor centre near Croydon.

The woman, who has not been named, went to her doctor’s surgery after the incident where it was discovered one of her implants had been torn apart. Paintball UK has now asked that women notify staff if they have breast implants before taking part in future. It also said that the woman involved would make a full recovery.
