Breast Implant
Removal

According to the National Center for Health Research, “Since 2015, the National Center for Health Research has been contacted by more than 4,500 women who had breast implants that they wanted to remove because of rupture, breast pain, or medical symptoms that they believed to be related to their implants. Most of the women could not afford explant surgery and asked for NCHR’s assistance in persuading their health insurance, Medicare, or Medicaid to cover the cost of implant removal without replacement.

Breast Implant-Associated Anaplastic Large-Cell Lymphoma (BIA-ALCL)
Are You At Risk?

Today, individuals contemplating breast augmentation have the most surgical choices they have ever had; however, breast implants actually have a long history. In fact, they have been around, in one form or another, since the late 1800s.

Per the Center for Plastic Surgery, “Before the dawn of the 20th Century, some women were so eager to increase their bust size that they went under the knife with complete uncertainty.

Until the middle of the 20th Century, doctors used just about anything they could get their hands on to enlarge the female breasts—including vegetable oils, ground rubber, ox cartilage, goat’s milk, Teflon, peanut oil, Terylene wool, and sponges.

Unfortunately, the success rate was frighteningly low and often resulted in terrible infection, disease, and sometimes death.

https://www.cpsdocs.com/blog/the-history-of-breast-augmentation/ In the 1960’s, physicians realized that foreign liquids inside the breast should not be free floating, but instead encased in some kind of “bag.”

This was the birth of the first breast implant that resembles the modern devices, and in 1962, Timmie Jean Lindsey became the first woman to receive breast enlargement using silicone implants.

The mother of six was operated on at the Jefferson Davis Hospital in Houston, Texas. Over a two-hour timeframe, Lindsey went from a B to a C cup size.
