Breast Implant Illness

With roughly 400,000 breast augmentation surgeries happening each and every year, there has been growing concerns among patients about their safety and long term effects.

In the early 1990s, concerns about breast implants was significant enough to lead to a recall of many of the popular silicon -implants. Although the FDA recommended additional safety and long term studies, this was never fully completed.

Today, there continues to be a concern circulating about their safety and especially as it related to autoimmune disease and BIA- ALCL (Breast Implant Associated Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma).

Chances are you either have a loved one with breast implants, have them yourself, or you have considered getting them. Although some women do perfectly fine with their implants, there is a growing number of women who do not.
