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. 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:
- Joint and muscle pain
- Autoimmune disorders
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.
“I had silicone breast implants placed 5 years ago. They were great for one year, then I started having weird problems. I went to see Dr. Orloff because of his reputation and his reviews on Yelp. Dr. Orloff and his staff were very caring. I had the implant with the capsule removed. I also had a lift to make my breasts look better. I am super happy with my recovery and how my breasts look. I am happy to have my implants out. I am happy with my whole experience. Most of all I feel much better!”
