Breast Implant Illness

Cutting Edge Wellness Service That Restores Your Health

Breast implant illness (BII) is a word that some women and medical professionals use to describe a broad variety of symptoms that can appear following breast implant surgery for cosmetic or reconstructive purposes. Other names for it include autoimmune/inflammatory syndrome brought on by adjuvants (ASIA).

Saline or silicone-filled breast implants have been a common prosthetic for more than a century. The risks associated with implanting breast implants in the body are something that the majority of individuals who choose to have breast augmentation surgery are not aware of. Both implant kinds have the potential to have harmful or toxic effects in specific situations.

Any type of breast implant, whether it has a smooth surface, a textured surface, a round shape, or a teardrop shape, can cause BII.

Each person is affected by BII in a different way. Some symptoms include:

  • Joint and muscle pain
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Memory and concentration problems
  • Breathing problems
  • Sleep disturbance
  • Rashes and skin problems
  • Dry mouth and dry eyes
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Headaches
  • Hair loss
  • Gastrointestinal problems

Both silicone and saline (saltwater) implants have the potential to cause local problems. The most frequent adverse reactions are breast pain, hematomas (blood clots) on or near the surgical scar, nipple loss of sensitivity, rupture, deflation, and lymphadenopathy, which is characterised by swollen lymph glands close to the insertion site. Over the breasts, a skin rash may develop, and the skin may look thin and wrinkled. Following the placement of an implant, calcium accumulation may potentially cause the breast tissue to calcify.

Anaplastic large cell lymphoma associated with breast implants is a relatively uncommon but potential side effect brought on by breast implants (BIA-ALCL). This particular form of cancer, known as lymphoma, develops from lymphocytes, which are immune system cells in the body. Although it shouldn’t be mistaken for breast cancer, BIA-ALCL is also a kind of cancer that affects the breast. Despite the fact that breast implants seldom cause anaplastic large cell lymphoma, the disease will need to be eradicated with extreme methods.

Breast implant-induced toxicity, particularly that brought on by silicone, presents with a wide range of symptoms and is challenging to identify. Some of the symptoms of silicone poisoning include headaches, chronic fatigue, hair loss, hormone imbalance, sleeplessness, sudden-onset allergies, thyroid issues, and gastrointestinal issues.

Health risks associated with breast implants have been noted, particularly if they rupture.

Post-Operative Breast Implant Illness Programme

For patients with BII, Pure Medical offers three programmes. Our all-encompassing, all-natural therapy routine seeks to boost tissue regeneration, detoxify the body as a whole, stimulate and improve lymphatic drainage, support and boost the immune system, lessen inflammation, restore the microbiome of the digestive tract, and rebalance hormones. We also provide specialised physiotherapy to help the musculoskeletal system heal.

Duration: 5 Weeks

Our comprehensive treatment plan for BII entails removal surgery at a nearby private hospital as well as a four-week detox and recovery programme conducted at our clinic.

Duration: 4 Weeks

You can come to our facility for the entire four-week Detox and Recovery Programme if you’ve had an explant elsewhere. We strongly advise coming as soon as possible following your explant and having the four weeks course of treatment for anyone with a breast implant illness. If you have further medical issues, we might even suggest a lengthier programme with us.

Duration: 2 Weeks

This programme is perfect for someone who has had an explantation and may have already started a home detox routine after surgery, but who still feels like they need professional help to hasten their recovery and perhaps address concerns they haven’t been able to handle on their own. Over the course of two weeks, the same protocol as our four-week programme is followed. Please use the form below to contact us for more details, including prices for the aforementioned programmes.
