Finding the cause and symptoms of breast implant illness and how you can find help to overcome this!
How is breast implant illness treated?
Normally the surgeons will treat breast implant illness by removing the breast implant. During this surgery, the surgeon will: i. Make an incision around your nipple or under the fold of your breasts. ii. Remove the implants. iii. Remove the scar tissue surrounding the implant. iv. Close the incision with skin adhesives or stitches. Normally surgeons suggest removing the scar tissue around your breast implants at the same time. This is called capsulectomy. While the breast implant and capsule are removed as a unit, it’s called an en bloc capsulotomy.
How long will it take to see results after treatment?
For some it shows improvement in symptoms right after the implant removal. While, not everyone will demonstrate the improvement immediately after the surgery. Healing may happen within the first 30 days after surgery. A study from Aesthetic Plastic Surgery showed that the improvement in symptoms within three months of surgery.
Is there any way to reduce my risk of breast implant illness?
Even experts still have not quite figured out the reason behind breast implant illness while the majority of others don’t. Certainly, the first way to eliminate the risk of breast implant illness is by choosing not to get breast implants. If you already have undergone breast implants and have several signs of breast implant illness, talk to your plastic surgeon. How can I find the right plastic surgeon who is well experienced and knowledgeable about treating breast implant illness and experienced in removing breast implants?
Make sure that the surgeon you are going to is board-certified. There are many surgeons who's practicing plastic surgery who may not be certified. So it is important to make sure you are going to the right person. If you are finding a new surgeon, one of the ways to find recommendations and reviews is through the online.
There are many online support groups which focus on implant-related health problems. There you may find the information needed on finding the right surgeon for you. Make sure that your plastic surgeon takes your concerns seriously and takes time to talk through the risks and benefits of any procedure or treatment approach to you during your consultation.
