Why do my Implants feel cold?

I thought this an appropriate topic for the day as it’s 25 and snowing outside here. Breast implants, silicone or saline, do change temperature. In the summer months they will warm up and in winter they cool down.

The reason is that the implants sit under your skin and breast tissue but outside of your chest cavity. Most women who have implants don’t have a lot of breast tissue or they wouldn’t have implants to begin with. So the implants adjust a few degrees to the outside temperature. That’s why they feel cold. The temperature change won’t hurt the implants but some women do complain that their breasts get a bit tender when this happens.
