BII ( Breast implant illness)

Recommended Posts

I am having breast implant surgery in 2 weeks and have been super excited about it..... until today , when a friend sent me articles on BII.  I thought I had read and researched as much as I could before booking my procedure, but i never came across this. Any information, opinions and comments appreciated on this topic. This has totally rained on my surgery excitement parade!!

talk to your surgeon about it if your concerned. 
There is no scientifically proven link between breast implants and BIL - thats not to say it isnt true, but they have done copious amounts of research on this and not found a link.

Hey @kittykat74 as The Fox says, there is no scientific evidence linking implants and BIL. There are woman who truly believe they have that, but there is no medical evidence confirming this is the case.

Not sure what articles you have, but they may not be evidence based - more opinion.

see these two articles for proper research related evidence

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/

and here's an article I found searching for breast plant illnesses that was published last year:

Good luck with your surgery in two weeks - you'll find you get loads of support from women on this forum :):)
