The Truth About Breast Implants

The Truth About Breast Implants


There has been a lot of controversy about the safety of breast implants over the years, with more women coming forward to tell their personal stories about their breast implant stories, it has become clear that education is crucial in the decision making to have this type of surgery or not.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month so, as Board Certified Doctors in Medicine and Aesthetics, Revivify Medical Spa would like to shed light on the subject of breast implants. The importance of breast health has a broad scope and in the aesthetic sector, questions surrounding breast implants are usually common among our patients.  We hope to help women make informed decisions about breast implant surgery and to educate the population about the risks associated with breast implants.

Are Breast Implants Safe?

This is a controversial topic within the plastic surgery field, while most plastic surgeons believe implants are safe, there is a growing number of surgeons who believe for certain patients the implants pose a great health risk.

The FDA has not made any official pronouncements on this subject; however, they did release the following statement:

“Breast implants are not lifetime devices; the longer you have your implants, the more likely it will be for you to have them removed.”

In the 50 years since breast implants first made an appearance, millions of women around the world have developed symptoms after receiving the implants. These symptoms have been coined Implant Illness.

While some of these symptoms are considered minor, research supports that in some patients, both saline and silicone filled implants can cause significant health concerns. Some of the symptoms reported by these women include:

  • Anxiety
  • Joint and Muscle pain
  • Insomnia
  • Brain Fog and Difficulty Concentrating
  • Memory Loss
  • Depression
  • Decreased Libido
  • Weight Gain
  • Swollen or Tender Lymph Nodes
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
  • Fibromyalgia Symptoms
  • Headaches
  • Skin Rashes
  • Hair Loss
  • Food Intolerance
  • Sharp Pains in Breast

Dangers of Breast Implant Surgery

According to the FDA, breast implants pose the following dangers:

  • Additional Surgeries: Patients should replace their implants every 10 to 15 years.
  • Asymmetry: There is no guarantee the patient’s breasts will be symmetrical after implantation.
  • Breastfeeding: Implants may affect breastfeeding, and there is a chance that a small amount of silicone may contaminate breast milk during breastfeeding. There are currently no established methods to accurately detect silicone levels in breast milk.
  • Breast Pain: Constant nipple or breast pain.
  • Breast Tissue Atrophy: Thinning and shrinking breast tissue and skin.
  • Calcification: Calcium deposits may accumulate around the breast creating lumps that may be mistaken for cancer during a mammography.
  • Chest Wall Deformity: Both the ribcage and the chest wall can appear deformed.
  • Deflation in Saline Implants: Leakage of saline solution due to valve leak, rupture, or tear of the silicone shell.
  • Delayed Wound Healing: Incision site fails to heal normally.
  • Hematomas: Swelling, bruising, and pain. Large hematomas may require surgical draining.
  • Infection, Toxic Shock Syndrome: Wounds may become infected by bacteria or fungi. If antibiotics fail, the implant may need to be removed.
  • Lymphedema: Swollen or enlarged lymph nodes.
  • Skin Rash: Rash on or around the implanted breast.

Is there a Safer Alternative to Breast Implants?
Get to Know the Natural Breast Lift

At Revivify Medical Spa we believe in the body’s ability to regenerate itself using safe, and minimally invasive medical procedures.

Through a unique procedure, our doctors are able to isolate growth factors from the patient’s own blood, when these growth factors are injected into the breast area they activate stem cells which will then grow new healthy tissue. The new tissue will include abundant collagen, new fatty tissue which will serve to provide a smooth appearance, and new healthy blood vessels which will restore the skin’s natural glow.

This procedure, the Non-Surgical Breast Lift or Natural Breast Lift, helps restore volume and provides a lifting effect to the existing breast tissue, and the best part is there are no negative side effects because the growth factors are extracted from the patient’s own blood.

Breast implant surgery is an invasive procedure which carries a number of risks, if you are looking to recover your natural breast shape and look younger and more vibrant, come in to Revivify Medical Spa for a consultation.
