How do women with breast implants get mammograms?

I heard that one is unable to get a proper mammogram with sacks of plastic in their chest...

but please enlighten me if this is not the case.

    I don't have implants, but that just not true, A mammogram is a form of x-ray, they can tell the difference in the implant and the breast tissue, besides, implants increase your risk of breast cancer so you should get a mammogram done regularly if you've had implants.

    per an actual doctor, the implants do get in the way and decease the ability to detect cancer, especially in the early stages...

    don't listen to the plastic surgery industry - people should do their own research (that is a serious surgery)!
