silicone can be a problem for lupus patients as I discovered with contact lenses. I was also turned down for gastric banding because it uses silicone based thingie and the doctor said it was a bad idea to implant silicone in a lupus patient. Other than that I have never heard of a problem from an implant of any kind.
