Toxic Silicone Implants

Breast implant illness is real, it is not a "mystery illness" called by many. It is called Siliconosis.

Unfortunately, misdiagnosis is also real.

This article, Siliconosis: A spectrum of illness enumerates the different symptoms, that might appear far away from the site of implantation.

Musculoskeletal pain syndrome:
  • overwhelming fatigue
  • arthralgias (joint pain)
  • myalgias
Other symptoms include:
  • chronic flulike state
  • chronic headache
  • irritable bowel syndrome
  • elevated cytokines
Some of them develop:
  • skin rash
  • alopecia (hair loss)
  • fever
  • lymphadenopathy 
  • arthritis
  • Sjögren's-like disorder characterised by xerophthalmia (dry eyes) and xerostomia (dry mouth)
Neurological symptoms in the form of:
  • short-term memory loss,
  • paresthesias (burning or prickling sensation usually in the hands, arms, legs, or feet)
  • neuropathy
Over the years, symptoms are getting worse, and no diet or lifestyle-change helps if the implants remain in the body.

Breast Implants are NOT Safe

It does not matter what type of breast implants we are talking about: saline (salt water) or silicone-filled. They all raise risk of chronic autoimmune conditions. All implants have a silicone pocket which degrades over time in the body. This degradation causes the immune system to overreact, trying to expel from silicone and other chemicals, that have nothing to do in the human body.

Early Symptoms of Silicone Toxicity

The silicone pocket surrounding the breast implant (saline or silicone) is a semi-organic material, it is not inert in the human body. Lipolysis occurs, making the implants permeable, allowing them to slowly lose its content, even without rupture.

Breast Implants - A Ticking Time Bomb

I hope that with this blog, I will get plastic surgery patients' attention, if for the past 5 years I could not get medical professionals to look deeply into the issue related to breast implants.
