Breast Implant Illness (BII) Dallas

What Is it?

Breast Implant Illness or BII is a general term given to patients who are concerned their breast implants could be contributing to other medical issues they are experiencing. The condition is thought to be caused by an inflammatory response of the body to the foreign devices (breast implants). Often patients have seen several doctors for these conditions and are often told they can’t find any medical cause for their issues. Because of those concerns many patients seek a surgeon for removal of the implants and anything in contact with the implants (the capsule). It is important to search out a surgeon with experience with BII patients and a surgeon with the skill sets to perform the explant in a proper and safe way.

At this time, there isn’t enough scientific data to explain how common this is or why some women have issues while others do not. The FDA recently had a hearing discussing breast implants, BII, and BIA-ALCL. There is currently ongoing research and panels looking more into the connection between breast implants and breast implant illness.
