HEALTH Breast implant illness

As cosmetic surgery becomes more and more popular, the very real risks that accompany these procedures remain as dangerous as ever—whether you like it or not. Before going under the knife, read these five important facts reported by Cosmopolitan about Breast Implant Illness to stay aware of the condition, dangers, and myths. 

1. There is no formal diagnosis that breast implants can cause an autoimmune disease. 

2. Women who do report symptoms of this illness claim they have neurological issues, skin irritations, joint pain, anxiety, depression,  and gastrointestinal problems. 

3. Some doctors believe the silicon exposure can lead to chronic inflammation. 

4. Even if the surgery goes without complications, there is a possibility for these symptoms to take place. 

5. There is no guarantee, but explant surgery (removing the implants) can relieve these symptoms. 

It is important to always consult with your doctor before any cosmetic surgery. While less than 2% of patients report complications outside of the common side-effects, research and consultation are encouraged before getting breast implants.
