Addressing Breast Implant Illness and options for Breast Implant Removal

More than 400,000 women and teenagers undergo breast implant augmentation surgeries every year, 75% of them for augmentation of healthy breasts and 25% for reconstruction after mastectomy.[1] The vast majority of these procedures are successful and show no symptoms of Breast Implant Illness (also known as “BII”).

However, a small percentage of surgeries do result in BII, which can be linked with different problems associated with their implants. These may include but are not limited to:

  • Pain
  • Fatigue
  • Joint and muscle pain
  • Autoimmune disorders
  • Lymphoma

Some women who undergo breast augmentation surgery experience certain changes in their bodies over time that make them feel unsure about their implants, or physically ill.

If you find yourself experiencing these symptoms, Dr.Orloff and Dr. Swistun at Burbank Plastic Surgery can evaluate your situation, and, if needed, perform safe breast implant removal surgeries that will help keep you well and looking great.
