Breast Implant Illness in Jupiter & Miami

Breast Implant Illness Symptoms and Side Effects

Breast augmentation with implants is a highly safe and successful procedure. However, there have been a number of women who have reported experiencing symptoms of what many call “breast implant illness,” or BII. The condition is believed to be a result of an inflammatory reaction triggered by a breast implant. Drs. David Rankin and Dev Vibhakar of Aqua Plastic Surgery are leaders in breast augmentation and explantation. In fact, Dr. Rankin has been featured in the media to speak about his expertise in breast implant illness. Symptoms vary from patient to patient, and in serious cases, can become debilitating to a woman’s health and quality of life. It is not uncommon for women with breast implant illness to be misdiagnosed, often with an autoimmune disease. For this reason, it is important to be aware of all possible symptoms and schedule an appointment with an experienced breast explant surgeon who has years of experience treating women with similar symptoms. Known symptoms of breast implant illness include the following:

  • Muscle pain and weakness
  • Chronic fatigue and lack of energy
