Breast implant illness (BII) is an experience of a collection of numerous symptoms, although there are no current diagnostic criteria as BII is not supported as a recognized medical condition. The theory of the cause of breast implant illness is an autoimmune reaction to silicone molecules.
Other proposed causes of BII besides the mentioned body’s inflammatory reaction to a foreign object, are the body’s response to particular approaches to the surgical techniques and insertion of breast implants.
Some of these symptoms include chest pain, chronic fatigue, joint pain, allergic reactions, rashes, depression, headaches, hormonal concerns, sleeping problems, and more. When these symptoms arise, you may be researching a breast implant illness doctor to help you with your next steps.
A breast implant illness doctor will need to be able to do 4 main tasks. A breast implant illness doctor must be able to remove the implant and the leaked silicone molecules. This procedure is done using an amphipathic material, ShurClens.
A breast implant illness doctor must also be able to remove the entire capsule. This “en bloc capsulectomy” will need to be performed by an experienced board-certified plastic surgeon.
While performing the two procedures above, a breast implant illness doctor will also need to be able to provide you a breast lift at the same time as the implant removal. This breast lift is necessary for your breast implant illness doctor to do as most women, after feeling they are experiencing BII, do not want to have another implant in, thus a vertical mastopexy must be performed.
Finally, a breast implant illness doctor must be able to provide you fat transfer options if you need more volume. Your board-certified surgeon should be a high definition specialist to provide you with the best results.
