Here are six terrifying reasons you shouldn’t get chest implants.
1. Women who get chest implants are four times more likely to commit suicide.
One study found that suicide among women who got chest implants after a mastectomy had a suicide rate that was ten times higher compared to other mastectomy patients. In another study from Vanderbilt University Medical Center, researchers found that women who had chest enlargement surgery were three times as likely to commit suicide, and were three times as likely to die from drug and alcohol dependence.
2. They aren’t necessarily safe.
Although saline-filled and silicone gel-filled implants have been approved by the FDA, there are risks with all chest implants. In an article on Anonhq, they list the risks of chest implants, which include additional surgeries, capsular contracture (scar tissue that squeezes the implant), chest pain, ruptures with deflation of saline-filled implants, and silent (without symptoms) rupture of silicone gel-filled implants.
3. They can cause serious illness.
Implants are large foreign objects that overwhelm and impair our immune systems, causing immune system dysfunction and auto-immune symptoms. Immune system dysfunction allows opportunistic bacteria and fungi to grow out of control, causing serious bacterial and fungal infections in our body, producing large amounts of biotoxins which overload our organs.
Symptoms include joint and muscle pain, memory loss, digestive issues, fevers, rapid heartbeat, ear ringing, headaches, and liver and kidney dysfunction.
4. Most women who have implants experience complications.
Approximately three out of four reconstruction (chest cancer) patients and almost half of first-time augmentation patients, using either saline implants or silicone gel implants, experienced pain, infection, hardening, or the need for additional surgery.
Side effects include infection, tenderness, lumpiness or discomfort around the implants, chest or bosom numbness, scar tissue, disfigured br**sts, necrosis, unusual hair loss, and dry eyes, mouth, or v**ina.
5. You’re more susceptible to getting cancer.
In 2011, the FDA identified a link between chest implants and the development of anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL), a rare type of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Women who have chest implants may have a very small but increased risk of developing ALCL in the fluid or scar tissue surrounding the implant. Like other lymphomas, ALCL is a cancer of the immune system and not of chest tissue.
6. They affect breastfeeding.
A recent study found that women who have had any kind of chest surgery are three times as likely to have a diminished milk supply for breastfeeding. And another study found that children who were breastfed after the mother had chest implants had higher levels of a toxic form of platinum in their blood than the children born before the same woman had chest implants.
