Despite the evolution of breast implant surgery there are still risks and potential problems women should be aware of
Edmonton, AB -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/30/2014 -- Discovering the facts and health risks of potential breast implant problems is an important element of the decision making process that women should go through before they decide to go ahead with breast implant surgery. There can be serious health problems caused by implants particularly if a patient is already suffering from, or is prone to developing, an autoimmune disease such as Multiple Sclerosis.
This week on Inside Cosmetic Surgery Today on webtalkradio, show host, Edmonton dermatologist Dr Barry Lycka welcomes once again, an expert on breast implant problems and their related health issues, Dr Susan Kolb, Board Certified Plastic Surgeon from her practise in Atlanta, Georgia.
In this in-depth interview, Dr Kolb highlights several risks to health that can be caused by having breast implants. She explains the links between health problems caused by having implants and suffering from an auto immune disease. The two doctors talk about the risks posed by the different ‘routes’ of insertion of the implants, and also what happens when different types of infection happen, including mold infections which create biotoxins which also cause illnesses which are often long term, difficult to diagnose and treat. Dr Kolb emphasises the importance of having a very healthy immune system before having any form of implant, including breast implants, inserted into the body. The two doctors also discuss which types of supplements, herbs and medications linked with bleeding that should be stopped before having surgery and they share several interesting case studies of health problems and illness caused by leaking breast implants and other breast implant problems, which Dr Kolb has treated.
