Abstract  
Augmentation mammoplasty is the most frequent request among esthetic surgery procedures but numerous controversies have been raised about the security of the silicone gel prostheses. Today a new question needs an answer: is the prosthesis a risk factor for pregnancy? In this paper the results of a hematochemical study performed on a group of patients with term pregnancies and silicone gel breast implants (group A) compared with a control group without implants (B) are described. For laboratory screening the valuation of antibody (TRIM) and silicone concentrations in blood and maternal milk and in neonate blood was performed.
Key words:  Augmentation mammoplasty      Mammary prostheses      Autoantibody      Silicone      Immune pathologies      Breastfeeding
