Breast Implants Illness

Posted by mandy75 @mandy75, Apr 2, 2023

Has anyone heard of Breast Implants Illness? My plastic surgeon stated that technically it hasn’t been an “approved issue” directly related to getting them. I have noticed in other forums that many women are now removing them to cure “symptoms” that resemble a lot of different things it could be. I’m getting direct implants during surgery but worry that down the line…I’d feel they would need to be “explanted” to cross out side effects. There are many discussions if you search the term. I’d appreciate any feedback!

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Breast Cancer Support Group.
