Breast augmentation deaths

Common Questions and Answers about Breast augmentation deaths


Avatar n tn I was wondering if someone could give me a percentage of the deaths occuring from breast augmentation yearly? I would also like a source with the information, unless you're a surgeon who performs these surgeries. Thanks so much!
Avatar n tn It's basically precancerous cells that could be approaching cancer. The oncologist will be the one to decide. If you have any relatives who have had breast cancer, your health, ect will play a part in what the oncologist decides. The treatment is your choice, it's always your choice.
Avatar n tn Are you putting this on the same level as a nose job, breast augmentation or lip plumping? Given the alternative, I'd readily accept my doctor's removal of my diseased organs anytime. You're right. We have choices in life. I choose to preserve my life for as long as I can. I also choose to help educate other women about ovca, not to terrorize and intimidate them. There's a difference, don't you think?
Avatar f tn Any kind of inflammation whether from injury like surgery or infection (appendicitis being a big one), or other irritants like endometriosis or even the fluid from a ruptured ovarian cyst causes scar tissue to form. Radiation for cancer is another big cause of adhesion formation. Any woman who has had breast augmentation surgery has to have someone knead the breasts to keep adhesions from leaving them like cereal bowls stuck to her chest.
Avatar n tn The same sort of thing went on years ago about silicone breast implants. Millions were paid out in class action suits. Horrible symptoms all over the place. Guess what? Not a single study has ever conclusively linked them with any health problem. It is extremely common for women to have hormone disruptions that can cause every one of your symptoms. If you believe strongly that something is the cause, and you take that thing away, 99% of the time the symptoms will clear up, too.
Avatar f tn ---I guess all those women with health issues due to the breast implants are delusional!! So apparently none of what I am saying or feeling has any basis in reality or science. This is pretty much what most health care practitioners say. Meanwhile, my health and energy levels continue to decline. I was not able to get a removal date until the 24th.
