Summary
  • Breast implants first appeared on the market in the 1960s, and almost twenty years later women began complaining of problems ranging from hard, painful breasts, disfigurement and loss of nipple sensation to mysterious illnesses resembling autoimmune diseases, such as lupus and scleroderma. Today, women who opt for implants are making a life-altering decision, yet most of them still do not understand what they are getting themselves into
  • Breast Implants was first published in 1992 at the height of the medical controversy. Now in its third edition, it contains the most current information on the known risks of implants, including deformed breasts and chests, multiple surgeries, broken implants, infection, difficulty breastfeeding, as well as the less well studied long-term systemic effects of exposure to silicone. Author Nancy Bruning, a breast cancer survivor living with an implant, highlights current research to help women get a full picture of the situation
  • Bruning interviews women with breast implants and experts in the field to get the full story that women will not get anywhere else. In the ten years since it was first published, Breast Implants has become a trusted resource that women can consult before making a decision that can have a profound effect on their lives
