Breast Implant Illness Awareness Day
National Breast Implant Awareness Month will be observed throughout March by bringing awareness to the public about breast implants.
For those who have implants and those considering them, it’s a valuable time to seek all avenues for information. Educating yourself about the risks, types of implants, and how they are managed are vital to your health. Arm yourself with the tools to answer questions about breastfeeding, mammograms and breast reconstruction. When it comes to insurance and symptoms, do you know where to turn?
In 2006, the FDA recognized that there were limited data on rare events and long-term outcomes with regard to silicone gel-filled breast implants. Long term studies on both silicone and saline filled implants were required and started for several populations.
Breast Implant Awareness Month is the time to find the right questions to ask and where to look for answers.
The awareness color for Women's Health is Pink.
