So are other substances and materials found in Breast Implants!
We did not initially write this piece for the many women in the world who have had breast implants for purely cosmetic reasons. Most of them knew the risks associated with this type of elective surgery, or at least had access to accurate information regarding the potential health problems of breast implants. They have made their choices, and can undo them whenever they so choose although not without consequence.
However, there are thousands of women throughout Europe who have filed lawsuits against the French manufacturer of a defective breast implant product. The great majority of those women elected to have these implants for the purpose of breast enlargement. While this decision was probably taken against the good advice of their own intuition, yes, we do hope to shed light on this emerging health crisis for all concerned?
Why would anyone want to put silicone in their body, especially in an area of the body that is particularly vulnerable to cancer, tumors, fibroid cysts and calcium deposits, among other types of growths and toxic buildups? Wouldn’t common sense dictate not to have a breast implant(s) for this reason alone.
We do wish to address a serious medical predicament which is becoming more common, particularly in light of the increasing incidence of breast cancer.
There are many women who have had either single or double mastectomies in the wake of breast cancer. This scenario presents an entirely different situation than the aforementioned. It is these folks, and those who have yet to have a recommended mastectomy, to whom we wish to speak in this health session. That’s not to say that this exposé will not be equally helpful for those who did make their decisions based solely on the purpose of breast enhancement.
Any woman who is approached during their post-mastectomy period is highly vulnerable to advice or solicitations to avail themselves for breast implants. It is quite understandable why this would be the case. They are shocked, scarred, hurt and wanting to be ‘made whole’. This tragic situation, not too unlike PTSD, causes them to enter a period of extreme vulnerability. This is when many usually make the fateful decision to proceed with breast implants.
The frame of mind and emotional bearing during this period is very similar to that of PTSD (Post Tramatic Stress Disorder) and is the primary reason why many of these same women agree to proceed with this ill-advised procedure. If they knew what they were setting themselves up for, they would abandon any such plans in a heartbeat. Continue reading
