Why can't most plastic surgeons believe that breast implants can cause systemic toxic illness on some women? (Photo)

Thank you for the question and silicone gel implants have been the most studied medical device and all the long term studies show that these diseases initially attributed to implants exist amongst women without out implants in the same percentages. But I would agree that many women do feel better after their implants are removed but much of that is because they believed it was the case prior to surgery.
