Illness related to breast augmentation?

Q: “So ive been reading a lot of posts about girls who have become ill after getting their boobs done. I know many surgeons will disagree and say that their symptoms/illness is coming from something else rather than their implants. I want silicone implants and im scared of getting ill with my implants. Im asian 20 5’2 110 lbs and i want 375cc’s. My body is extremely sensitive as well but idk if that has anything to do with the illness. How rare is this BA related illness?”

Dr. Yovino’s Answer: As you have probably already seen, there’s no evidence that silicone breast implants cause “illness”. They may be associated with pain that is typically localized to the breast especially if significant capsular contracture occurs. Thankfully this is rare.
