I am desperate for answers. Why do my breasts itch all the time? My saline implants have been in for 8 years. I'm having a hard time believing this in "nerve endings" after 8 years. I'm in search of honesty and clinical findings.
I Have Had my Saline Breast Implants in for 8 Years and They Itch All the Time. WHY?

Implants should not itch
the implants themselves don't illicit a reaction that should cause any itching. If the implants are very large and have considerable stretch on the skin it can lead to issues. Itching however is very uncommon. A dermatologist might be able to sort out the origin. Best of Luck!

Itching of the breasts
Breast implants are inert and would be an unlikely cause of itching. You may want to be examined by a dermatologist to determine any outer likely causes for your problem.

Itching with implants
I doubt that itching is the result of the implants. Of course, it is best to be evaluated but you probably should see a dermatologist or allergist.
