SILICONE breast implants may increase the risk of a woman to die of birth, skin cancer and arthritis, suggest new research.
Women who have had boobs are 4.5 times more likely to have a fatal birth and nearly four times more likely to develop melanoma, a type of skin cancer.
They are also six times more likely to develop inflammatory affections of rheumatoid arthritis.
In addition, women who have silicone implants are more likely to suffer from surgical complications than those who choose saline implants.
Scarring in breast tissue around the implant is more likely when the implant is silicone, researchers from the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston said.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which approves medical supplies in the US, banned the use of silicone implants in the 1990s due to health concerns, including cancer, tissue diseases and autoimmune diseases.
But further research has found no link between breast implants and patients.
In 2006, the FDA approved silicone gel implants from two manufacturers, urging them to conduct studies and monitor long-term safety results.
Currently, the most popular implants approved by health regulators are silicone implants and saline-filled implants.
Silicone implants use a shell filled with plastic gel, while saline implants use silicone shells filled with saline.
Many women opt for silicone because they feel more like a real breast.
For the new study, Texas experts analyzed nearly 100,000 patients enrolled in a breast implant study during 2007-2011.
Approximately 80,000 women had silicone implants, and the rest had saline implants.
Approximately 72 percent had a healthy pregnancy to raise their breasts, 15 percent had revision to improve their implants again, 10 percent had a breast reconstruction and three percent had surgery to correct a reconstruction.
Experts also found that they were at risk of rare autoimmune disorders, including; Sjogren syndrome, a disorder of the immune system that causes dry eyes and dry mouth; and scleroderma, the strengthening and chronic tightening of skin and connective tissues.

The lead author, Dr. Mark Clemens, Associate Professor at the University of Plastic Surgery, said: "We report an analysis of the largest prospective study so far on the safety of the silicone breast implant.
"We share critical information on complication rates and rare associations with systemic damage.
This data provides women with important safety information about silicone breast implants to have real expectations and to help them choose what is right for them.
These findings are associations compared to the general population and determine why these associations are observed or any causality requires further study.
