The truth about breast implants | Breast implant illness

Breast implant illness

According to The American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, breast augmentation is the most common plastic surgery. With an estimated  290,467 surgeries performed in 2017, there are many women suffering from negative side effects that go unidentified. Here is the truth about breast implant illness.

My experience with having breast implants is the hardest thing I have ever talked about publicly.

13 years ago I made a decision that would forever change my life.  I am telling my story to educate and inspire women all over the world, on the downsides and complications that can come from not loving yourself and trying to change how you were made.


If you have breast implants and suffer from unexplained symptoms out of the blue you may be experiencing breast implant illness.

Three major symptoms of Breast Implant Illness

  • Food sensitivities and gut heart issues. Never had any food intolerances until you had breast implants?  Well, you are not alone.  Most women who have breast implants develop sensitivities to many foods that are commonly eaten.
  • Hormonal Imbalances. Yes as females hormone imbalances are so common; but they shouldn’t be so common if you live a healthy lifestyle, eat a well rounded and balanced diet, and are not in menopause.  Of course, hormonal imbalances can even happen to a healthy woman if there are other underlying issues, so get checked out if you are experiencing anything unusual!
  • Adrenal dysfunction. Your adrenals are responsible for producing essential hormones needed to live, such as your sex hormones and cortisol.  They are responsible for the fight or flight mode that helps us handle stress and other functions of the body. When your immune system is working hard to fight off the implants (foreign objects) your adrenal glands will be taxed more than it can handle causing fatigue and dysfunction.

Now you may be reading this saying, I’m fine, my implants don’t hurt, they aren’t leaking plus they look great! Well, I say good for you!  But eventually, you may not be feeling or thinking the same way.  It’s bound to happen. Just because your implants are intact and not leaking doesn’t mean that you are immune to the reaction of implants and that your body is healthy.

Whether it’s 6 months, 10 years, or 25 years, your body will start breaking down.  And it starts off slow with maybe one thing.  Then that one thing turns into two, then three symptoms, and so on.  In my support groups, I belong to we all say it’s not a matter of if, but a matter of when.

Breast implant illness In conclusion

If you have breast implants, please pay attention to your body. Listen to it and don’t doubt it.  Your body can tell you all sorts of things even if doctors and tests do not come up with conclusive results.  You can find more information on breast implant illness, over at
