Breast Implant Illness (BII) TREATMENT IN PASADENA, CA
Breast implant Illnesss, or BII, is a term used by some women and Doctors to describe physical symptoms that may develop after having breast implants placed for cosmetic or reconstructive reasons.
The reported symptoms are varied and can include:
- joint and muscle pain
- chronic fatigue
- memory and concentration problems
- breathing problems
- sleep disturbance
- rashes and skin problems
- dry mouth and dry eyes
- hair loss
- gastrointestinal problems
BII presents in many ways and can develop months to years after the implants have been placed. BII has been noted in all types of implants regardless of shape, texture, fill material, or placement (Sub-Pec, Sub Glandular, Pre-Pec). Generally speaking, the recommended treatment is to remove the implants and capsules and symptoms often resolve once they’re gone.
It is important to note that BII is currently not a medical diagnosis, although that does not mean that women who experience symptoms should be disregarded. At present, BII is considered a cluster of symptoms that cannot be categorized as any other classic disease diagnosis.
