Despite prohibiting of the foreign material injection for aesthetic breast augmentation in many countries. Its late complications still bring patients back for corrective and reconstructive surgery. There is no clinical management consensus or international guideline. Most of the literatures recommend surgical removal with immediate reconstruction with autologous tissue. We report a case of bilateral breast siliconoma which was treated by total mastectomy with two stage tissue expander-prosthesis reconstruction.
