Breast implants are often a life changing experience for many women. They’re an adventure in of themselves that dramatically improve self esteem and confidence but they can bring unwanted attention as well.

Some women find they don’t feel happy after their implants. They feel worse, and might experience any of the following:

  • Pain
  • Hair loss
  • Sleeping problems
  • Depression

While the FDA, plastic surgeons, medical professionals and researchers from the medical community are all watching this condition to see if it really exists, all evidence so far points that it doesn’t.

Breast implant illness is not a diagnosis medical professionals recognize today.

A Tentative Solution

A hypothesis that seems likely is that the person is suffering from inflammation resulting from the surgery then interpreted as uneasiness or depression.

Some point at the silicone used in the surgery process, or the fact that it’s possible an infection has taken place during the procedure.

Various physical trauma targeted at the implants themselves might be causing a physical discomfort that is imperceptible, but present regardless.

To err on the side of safety, while further research is conducted into breast implant illness, any patient with breast implants can immediately consult a professional to find out if an explant would help ease their mind.

An explant involves total removal of all the foreign material inserted during a breast implant and the patient can indeed be returned to a similar state from before they underwent the implant.
