A Reality-check if you are thinking about Breast Implants


This is the era of on-the-go healthcare where diagnosis is tele-communicated and medicines are ordered via the web. Though there is nothing wrong in getting digital and obsessed with your health, there is a downside to the ease with which medical procedures are available, including those that pose significant risk, including long-term and irreversible damage to the body. One such treatment that has caught the attention of leading medical fraternity regulatory organizations is Breast Implants. According to one of the most credible healthcare watchdogs in the world today, the FDA, Breast Implants are putting women in severe danger of developing critical conditions like carcinomas and other types of malignant cancers.


A unique type of cancer associated with Breast Implants has been identified and acknowledged across the world—called ALCL or Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma—this cancer stems from the unwanted cellular-level changes induced by irrationally conducted cosmetic breast enhancement surgeries that invariably includes using implants of some type. The side effect of breast implants are no longer considered minor. Women undergoing this type of surgical breast enhancement need to understand that they are putting their health at extreme risk – something that is perhaps not discussed or disclosed at the time of initial consultations sought with the surgeon who eventually conducts the Breast Implant surgery.

Complications associated with Breast Implants are permanent and include disfiguring the body and inducing long-term damages, such as cellular toxicity. Some of the most common Breast Implant complications have been listed for your consideration:
[This refers to saline and silicone breast implants]

  • Misshaped Breasts: the loss of shape becomes visible within a few weeks
  • Swelling, allergic reactions, discoloration of the skin
  • Lupus
  • Hardening of arteries
  • Breakage/Leakage in breast implants causing necrosis: skin cells start dying
  • Metal poisoning: associated with Breast Implants where platinum exposure is involved, i.e. usually silicone breast implants
  • Autoimmune disorders like fibromyalgia
  • Formation of multiple cysts or lumps
  • Scar tissue formation: resistant to topical treatment, needs surgical intervention
  • Infection: due to faulty implants or negligence during surgery
  • Permanent Post-surgical Risks: including permanent damage to the mammary gland
  • Chronic breast pain, numbness: a common breast implant symptom
  • Difficulty in breastfeeding: reported by young, nursing women


Please note that most Breast Implants will eventually outlive their shelf-life — these are not a permanent solution. The results are purely aesthetic. Even if done for patients having lost their breasts due to pre-existing cancers, these implants have a short life. For instance, the best of silicone implants too are known not to survive beyond 10 years but the promised period might extend up to 15 years. Even if the implants don't need additional surgery or replacement for a long time, the risks are too heavy to outweigh the risks involved. The risk of Breast Implant rupture just cannot be ignored. From increasing the financial burden to health insurance related complications and the underlying chances of needing multiple surgeries, Breast Implants come across as a poorly chosen option, ridden with lethal complications. There have been thousands of cases where surgery was required to remove the implants, i.e. a MASTECTOMY, and resulted in total removal of breast tissue and the muscles below the breasts!


Considering the serious and undeniable risks associated with getting breast implants, you might want to consider a safe, even if less effective, option like Herbal, Natural Breast Enhancement and Breast Firming Therapy.
