Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Risk rates of adverse events of high clinical interest (eg, cancers, neurological diseases, connective tissue diseases) assessed by the investigator [ Time Frame: 10 Years ]
  2. Risk rates of common complications of breast surgery (eg, capsular contracture, implant rupture/deflation) assessed by the subject and investigator [ Time Frame: 10 Years ]
  3. Re-operations [ Time Frame: 10 Years ]
    Rates of reoperation reported by subjects and by investigators at office visits
