With every instance of breast augmentation using Breast Implants there is a story within the chest wall that’s ‘out of sight, out of mind’. Its a matter of degree.

Anyone ‘seeing with awareness’ will understand there are inevitable destructive changes that occur from the time implants are placed, which can include scar tissue; nerve damage (loss of sensation or pain); infection; and more. The damage can range from minor to severe. Some issues might resolve with time, while some may worsen, and new destructive changes occur through the years. Destructive changes can include capsular contracture; acute inflammation; calcification; necrotized tissue; silicone migration to lymph nodes, tissue and vital organs; silicone-imbedded muscles; silicone-filled lesions and masses; scar capsules up the the collarbone and attached to ribs; biofilms; milk duct destruction; granulomas; seromas; and so much more.
In addition to localized issues women often experience a variety of systemic autoimmune, toxicity related illnesses which they may not realize are related to their breast implants. Rashes are common, as are respiratory and digestive issues. Some women with textured implants can develop Breast Implant Associated Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma (BII-ALCL).
When you see someone with ‘Breast Implants’ I hope you’ll ‘SEE with AWARENESS‘. Be aware that they are toxic sacs of chemicals which have never been proven safe, and sit within 2-3 cm of vital organs. Even when women say their implants aren’t causing issues, they likely have no awareness of the subtle, or not so subtle, ways their implants are affecting them.
