Breast implant illness refers to a wide range of symptoms that occur after getting breast implants, ranging from autoimmunity to neurological issues. While the conclusive data is controversial and BII is not an “official medical diagnosis,” women who explant report improvements in health or even full resolution of unexplained symptoms.
Women who have saline or silicone implants are susceptible to BII. Saline is more susceptible to mold/yeast. Both contain silicone and can gel bleed or leech. Silicone is a manmade industrial toxin that can enter the lymphatic system, lymph nodes, fascia, and bloodstream and is a serious health risk, despite what your plastic surgeon might have told you.
Other ingredients contained in breast implants include tin, platinum, arsenic, hexanes, polyvinyl chloride, benzene, and chloroform.
How can we think this is safe? It’s not, so the FDA recently put a black box warning, its most serious warning, on breast implants.
How can we safely detox? The first thing to do is to consider removing the implants, which may be a process for you and take some time. En-bloc capsulectomies are always recommended, and opening drainage is crucial to healing from the disease.
