What is Breast Implant Illness (BII)?

Breast Implant Illness is a term used to describe a collection of symptoms that some individuals report experiencing after undergoing breast augmentation or reconstruction surgery involving implants. These symptoms can encompass a wide range of physical and emotional health challenges. While the exact cause of BII is not fully understood, it's crucial to acknowledge the reality of the experiences shared by those who believe they are affected.

Recognizing the Symptoms

The symptoms associated with BII can be diverse and may manifest differently in each individual. Common symptoms include:

  • Fatigue: An ongoing sense of exhaustion and lack of energy that doesn't improve with rest.
  • Joint and Muscle Pain: Unexplained pain in muscles and joints, akin to symptoms experienced with conditions like fibromyalgia.
  • Cognitive Issues: Often referred to as "brain fog," this includes difficulty concentrating, memory lapses, and cognitive sluggishness.
  • Emotional Distress: Anxiety, depression, mood swings, and irritability may be heightened.
  • Digestive Discomfort: Bloating, food sensitivities, and gastrointestinal disturbances.
  • Skin Problems: Rashes, acne, and other skin issues can arise.
  • Sleep Disturbances: Difficulty falling asleep, staying asleep, or experiencing restful sleep.

The Pursuit of Answers

It's important to note that the medical community is still in the process of understanding the intricacies of Breast Implant Illness. While some studies have reported associations between certain symptoms and breast implants, more research is needed to establish causality definitively. It's equally important to recognize that not all individuals with breast implants experience BII symptoms, further adding to the complexity of the issue.

A Multifaceted Approach to Support

If you suspect you are experiencing symptoms related to Breast Implant Illness, seeking medical advice is a crucial step. While removing the implants is a potential course of action for some, addressing symptoms and regaining health may require a multifaceted approach. This could involve:

  • Consulting Medical Professionals: Discuss your concerns with our medspa providers who are knowledgeable about BII and its potential implications.
  • Exploring Removal: If deemed appropriate, consulting a plastic surgeon who is familiar with BII about implant removal with capsulectomy may be considered.
  • Lifestyle Modifications: Adopting a healthy lifestyle through balanced nutrition, exercise, and stress management can aid in overall well-being.
  • Holistic Therapies: Engaging in complementary therapies like Reiki, massage, lymphatic drainage massage, infrared sauna, IV vitamin therapy, supplements for immune system support, and yoga may help alleviate symptoms.
  • Emotional Support: Mental and emotional well-being play a vital role. Seek support from counselors, therapists, or support groups.
