Mission Statement for Implant Awareness Society (I.A.S.)

Educational: To educate the general public, using information and scientific facts, to help them better understand how the body reacts to saline and silicone implants.

Charitable: To give emotional support and guidance that will help implant patients and their families cope with the complications caused by all indwelling implants. Through our far-reaching network, we are often able to recommend specific doctors and health-care workers who have experience working with patients that have unique health challenges due to their implants.

The society has received many emails of thanks from women and men who have been given support throughout their trials and mishaps due to silicone implants.  Some women that were confined to wheelchairs regained their health due to the support and doctor referrals given to them by the I.A.S.

A small body of determined spirits,
fired by an unquenchable faith,
can alter the course of human history.

–Mahatma Gandhi

    I had silicone breast implants for 30 years, the implants made me so ill I thought I was really dying. I was diagnosed with MS- 17 years ago and even then my doctors stated your implants arent causing your MS. I dont even ever want to see another doctor as long as I live right now. I honestly dont believe they had my best interests in mind. The only honest statement the plastic surgeon made to me was the implants dont last more than 8 to 10 years. so my implants should have been taken out no later than 1990. I just had them out on 2010 because of a list of illness I wouldnt even have room on this site to tell you. I want to write a book, some women still arent listening all I have to say to everyone in due time its gonna happen again(big civil lawsuits) and hopefully you will live long enough to collect the peanuts they toss you.

    I had Silicone Breast Implants from 2003-2012. I had them removed after becoming very ill. I am a Registered Nurse and my husband is a Physician. We were never given an appropriate informed consent. How these Plastic surgeons get away with denying that implants make women sick is a crime. I have had them removed and am still sick as a result of them leaking.

    I am very sick and still have my implants in I have the high cohesive gel or also known as the gummy bear implants. My left breast I think has a capsule contracture. I have been having these symtoms that started 2 years ago and thought it was related to menapause not knowing that it could be my implants. Now here I am and I can’t even describe the helpless and hopelessness that I am feeling. These toxic implants are causing so much sickness inside of my body. Everyday is a chalenge just to keep going. I am trying to cope with all this sickness I have and trying to raise my children it is such a fight and so very depressing. I am in the process of trying to find a plastic surgeon to remove these toxic implants, but I keep getting shuffled from one doctor to another I almost feel like I will be dead by the time I can get them out. I Pray that if anyone out there is thinking about getting implants please think long and hard. It is not worth it please think about it and I hope this will help others to know that you are beautiful just the way you are!

    I am pending explanation of Inamed Style 110 silicone implants. After reading Dr Susan Kolb’s book “The Naked Truth about Breast Implants from Harm to Healing” my symptoms of joint pain and tendonitis may have started 2 years following implantation. It wasn’t until 2012- 2013 that my symptoms began to intensified brushing off as arthritis. Progressed to the point diagnoses carpel tunnel syndrome. Status post bilateral CT and tendon release 1 year later I have bilateral shoulder pain, knee pain, ankle pain and continued wrists, hands, & finger pain with limited mobility of all joints. I now have difficulty walking. Multiple blood tests, am MRI, xrays told I’m a healthy 52 y/o female. Until I returned to my plastic surgeon who confirmed my symptoms could be related to the implants. Recommended the book. Now awaiting explanation by Dr Susan Kolb in Atlanta GA. Praying for a favorable recovery as I am an emergency department RN and need my hands and feet to return to work. Thank you for you awareness YouTube videos.

    I feel anyone in the predicament of having reactions to leaky implants can benefit from the wealth of knowledge of this society. Adella is smart, caring, knowledgeable and a true gem. I am going to make a donation to this society because they have directed me on a path to restore my health. I only pray that she will be able to get legislation passed making it mandatory that doctors remove the entire capsule after leaking implants. I had a rupture in 2013 and not been the same since. I, thought they would remove everything but the doctor has the discretion to leave the capsule. Mine said it was inert. Not true because silicon migrated to a lymph node under my arm. I will follow the excellent advice to have the balance removed. Thank god for your life work to help others have direction and support with this troubling matter. Thank you. Margo
