Intact right breast implant, showing some radial folds.
Multiple small simple cysts are seen scattered within both breasts, as well as a small well-defined ovoid solid lesion at the outer aspect of right breast (fibroadenoma).
Localized silicone leak between the implant shell and the surrounding fibrous capsule gives rise to the "subcapsular line sign" and the "key-hole sign", whereas water droplets within the silicone gives the "salad oil sign", all of which imply intracapsular implant rupture.
