I believe Nat is pulling your leg. In any event, liquid or gel filled implants are incompressible and not not subject to volume change. If they were filled with a gas then,
Gas theory: PV = nrT or
(P1*V1)/T1 = (P2*V2)/T2
Which basically enables you to compute the new state of a gas based upon changes in pressure, volume, or temperature. If you cut the pressure in half, the volume of gas will double.
I was referring to the explanation by x9200 actually.
Yep, I used the above equations (Boyle's law) assuming non-adiabatic conditions /T1=T2/

I just can't help feel a little angsty when I take off and land! I still love it and if I am in Business I tend to take my preflight Champers to ensure it's not so bad
nutnut, there is something extremely nice and relaxing for people like you in the SIA's A380 inflight entertainment system. I do not recall the exact name of it now, but it's like an interactive "crash course" (no pun intended... or just a little bit) in flying; they detail the reasons for turbulence, noise, pressure changes, etc. Really good program that helped me overcome my stress of flying 12+ hours in the A380 !
If you really want to overcome your fear of flying, go take a couple of flying lessons. You'll learn all about aircraft flight and systems, and you'll fly one yourself... knowing then exactly what it takes to fly it.
