Silicone breast implants: surely they must be high on the list of operations to avoid? - BBC News reports today: "Silicone breast implants are relatively safe despite frequent complications and a small increased risk of the disease lymphoma, US drug regulators have said. In a new report, the Food and Drug Administration said the risks were well enough understood that prospective patients could make informed decisions. But it found as many as one in five breast augmentation patients had the implants removed within 10 years."
This information doesn't make internal sense, does it? 'Relatively safe' and 'frequent complications and a small increased risk of the disease lymphoma' cannot logically belong in the same description, can they? - Then to top it off we are told that 20% of the patients have the implants removed within ten years! - There has to be a helluva lot of dissatisfaction or serious problems/worries to cause someone to go through the trauma/pain/expense/risk of having further surgery on the breasts.
A woman can, after all, wear a padded bra if she feels the need when dressed. And if she thinks she will appear more desirable with surgically enlarged breasts when naked then, in my opinion, she would do well to consider whether the people who value her for her measurements rather than for 'herself' are worth bothering about. Certainly not worth taking risks with your health, your most precious possession.
