My boyfriend showed me this video early and thought it was funny as hell. Apparently if you put a flash light up to Silicone breasts, they will light up a lot. Then I was curious about what would happen if you tried it on real boobs, it doesn't do anything.

Whoa, no. Lots wrong here.
First, and most importantly, that would only happen with subglandular (OVER the chest muscle) implants -- which are pretty rare -- and not with the much more common submuscular (under muscle) kind.
For a REPUTABLE surgeon, over-the-muscle is generally reserved for women with almost no breast tissue -- literally, not enough to even accommodate a secure pocket for a submuscular operation -- and/or professional athletes who can't afford the risk and rehabilitation of a submuscular operation.
... Or it could just indicate a less-than-reputable, "discount" surgeon. (You draw yr own conclusions about the job in the video. Hint: If you can tell a woman's had cosmetic surgery, she's had bad cosmetic surgery.)
Second... Hahah I don't know about cheap Chinese implants, but, nope. The implants from Mentor Corporation, used in almost all US breast augmentations, are absolutely opaque.
Ironically, my surgeon actually demonstrated the OPAQUENESS of mine... with a flashlight. Didn't penetrate at all. As opaque as metal foil.
Third -- Not sure of this matters, but, most implants in 1st world countries aren't silicone. Silicone implants were taken off the market by the US FDA from 1994 to 2006, so they are rare in the States -- and in most other 1st world countries, which tend to follow the lead of the USA in any and all medical tech.
Hate to disappoint.
