Today with increasing numbers of women suffering around the globe,, we want to add our voice to the worldwide chorus that yes indeed, breast implants can cause chronic illness.
It seems that to explant is the new fashion but for many it is not a fashion statement but a necessary action to regain their health.
From minor issues to debilitating symptoms, breast implants come at a major health cost. Reports show many women are getting diagnosed with autoimmune disorders, chronic fatigue syndrome, arthritis, fibromyalgia, liver and kidney dysfunction and at worse even a rare type of cancer, breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL).
Side effects and complications include breast pain, blood clots, loss of sensation in the nipple, rupture, deflation and lymphadenopathy, which means that lymph glands near the insertion site become swollen, skin necrosis, Calcification of the breast tissue and nipple discharge among others.
Breast-implant-induced toxicity, caused especially by silicone, manifests with a variety of symptoms and is difficult to diagnose. Headaches, chronic fatigue, hair loss, hormonal imbalance, insomnia, sudden-onset allergies, thyroid problems and gastrointestinal problems are just some of the symptoms caused by silicone poisoning.
Explanting of course is the number one step if you are suffering from any of the above side effects or conditions. Here at Neomed Institute in Cyprus we have developed a program to support the recovery of individuals who decide to explant and help them to regain their health once again.
Our unique explant and breast illness program includes the removal of the implants by our expert Associate Surgeon Dr. Christina Panaretou at a private hospital local to us which is followed by a post operative rehabilitation period at our clinic. Our post operative program is designed with therapies that reduce inflammation, accelerate tissue regeneration and detoxification with specialised physiotherapies to enhance lymphatics, support the hormonal system of the body and to stimulate and support the immune system.
We also offer our post operative program to individuals who have already explained elsewhere but who are still suffering with breast implant illness.
