Breast implant illness is a term used by patients who self-describe the symptoms and feelings associated with complications from breast implants. This term is not a real diagnosis, but physicians do offer treatment for these complications. Because it is not recognized as a medical diagnosis, there are no criteria for these symptoms to be called “breast implant illness.”
What is Breast Implant Illness?
Breast implant illness is the undiagnosed combination of symptoms and side effects from a breast implant procedure. The cause of this is unknown, but there are several treatment options available. Your body can react to breast implants in several ways. Many women notice fatigue and pain, ruptured implants, infection, or a possible connective tissue disorder.
