comments: i was very interested in having something done to enlarge my
chest only slightly just to give me that little extra boost and shape.
Although after reviewing everything that could happen i was horrified to
see the side-effects starting to come out of the closet and can only
hope that someone will start working on finding ways to give
these women back what they have lost rather than continuing
with finding ways to introduce new methods of breast implants,
pretending that nothing will go wrong and covering up old mistakes.
Although i am now very disappointed in finding that it is too
much of a risk to have implants, i hope that someone
out there can suggest natural ways to improve the build of breasts
and keep them that way through ageing if we want to feel better
about ourselves. i am simply horrified with the
greed of today's society in promoting and persuading women of
today that this is the only way to better ones self, that a woman
is not good enough without this remedy. i do understand the
situation of many women where they are embarrassed and feel
themselves 'not worthy' and mainly uncomfortable with small or
sometimes non existant breasts (as in my case)but hope that we
can all just convey an attitude of accepting us the way we are
or not at all! Let's face it, we are doing this only for the
men. Okay, many will say they are doing it to feel better in
themselves, but think about it, would breast implants even have
been suggested (invented) if it were not for men? i'm not saying
there's anything wrong with
looking good for our man, but not when it means altering our
identity. we are what we are, whether fat, thin, large chested
or a simple hand-full - what would this
world be without a little variety to choose from. i don't want
to sound like a preacher, but seeing just what remedies women
will go through, with irreversable side-effects, just makes me
sick and i feel very bad for them. If you want bigger breasts,
get your man to massage them regularly - trust me, it works
wonders and it should keep you both happy!!!

EMAIL: email@example.com comments: I am all "back" at 38 AA (no cup). When I was 23 and in the Navy I went to the Navy doctor about implants. He said they would do the operation for free but I had to buy the implants ($90 a piece)if I wanted them. He then said that he thought too many women are too worried about their looks and not enough about their minds. He told me I ought to go to college instead of worrying about my boobs. I listened to him and ended up with a Master's degree. Now 20 years later the old thought has come back into my mind again. I am a 38 AA and i have no cup. The 38 is my back!! It would be nice to find a bra to fit. My husband says women with large breasts look like cows that need milking. He says he loves me as i am and so does Jesus. After reading your web page I believe that once again God has intervened and shown me that He has created me perfect. I would rather make my own bras then to go thru the pain and suffering that most have gone thru. Granted there were one or two who are happy but I would worry over every ache and pain if i had this done. Thank you for your web page. It was most enlighening!! signed Educated & Flat out Happy

comments: I hate them. I have Inflammatory arthritis throughout my whole body. I take numerous medications to control these symptoms but nothing seems to help. I am totally disabled and have been since May 18, 1998 due to these health problems. I truly believe these problems are caused by the silicone breast implants. I have one which is ruptured but have been unable to come up with the money to have them removed.

comments: fOR A LONG TIME I WANTED IMPLANTS BUT FINANCIALLY I COULD NOT AFFORD THEM, THEN FINALLY I WAS ABLE TO GET THEM AND I DID NOT FOR MY HUSBAND, NOT FOR MY FAMILY, NOT FOR MY FRIENDS, BUT FOR ME. I WAS JUST NOT HAPPY WITH MY 34A SIZE BREAST, BUT AT THE SAME TIME I WAS AFRAID OF ALL I HAD READ AND HEARD THEN CAME SALINE WOW I THOUGHT THIS MUST BE A SIGN AND FINALLY AFTER MANY MANY YEARS I GOT SALINE BREAST EVEN THOUGH THE SACK IS SILICONE. IT WILL BE 1 YEAR IN FEB SINCE MY SURGERY AND ALREADY I HAVE GONE UNDER THE KNIFE 3 TIMES. THE ORIGINAL SURGERY IN WHICH MY DOCTOR SUGGESTED A CERTAIN SIZE AND I DISAGREED, THEN AFTER ALL WAS NORMAL AFTER THE SWELLING I WENT BACK TO RE-DO THEM INTO THE SIZE HE HAD SUGGESTED I WAS JUST NOT SATISFIED AND WANTED MORE, THAT BECAME SURGERY NO.2. AFTER A FEW MONTHS LATER A NOTICED ONE OF MY BRAST UP HIGHER AN TIGHTER THAN THE OTHER SO HERE I GO BACK TO THE DR. WHERE HE EXPLAINED TO ME THAT THE BREAST HAD ENCAPSULATED AND THE BEST THING TO DO AT THIS POINT WAS TO HAVE A CAPSULECTOMY DONE TO LOOSEN AND FREE THE BRAST FROM THE SCAR TISSUE THAT WAS FORMING AROUND IT, SO THERE I GO AGAIN INTO SURGERY NO.3. WELL ITS BEEN 2 MONTH SINCE SURGERY NO.3 AND GUESS WHAT BOTH OF MY BREAST ARE AGAIN ENCAPSULATED BEFORE IT WAS JUST ONE NOW ITS BOTH. JUST YESTERDAY I WAS AT MY DR. OFFICE WERE HE TOLD ME THE KNEWS AND SUGGESTED TO GO FOR SURGERY NO.4 WITH TEXTURED SILICONE IMPLATS I CURRENTLY HAVE SMOOTH SALINE IMPLANTS... AT THIS POINT YOU MIGHT SAY HOW STUPID AND IGNORANT CAN THIS WOMAN BE BUT TO BE HONEST I AM CONFUSED AND DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO I TOTALLY TRUSTED the doctors.
comments: I had my 2 RUPTURED implants removed 5 days ago and yhe ANGER is setting in.Mine were 26 years old and grossly ruptured. I have developed many health problems over the years and none of the diseases "run in the family" . I have loose silicone in my rib cage that can not be removed. I have silicone in my lungs and silicone crystals all over my body. I'm mad as hell that my good health has been ruined and DOW CORNING still says it wasn't caused by their implants. No amount of money can replace me as a mother ,sister and grandmother when I die from this!!!!! My husband married a women 12 years younger than him and now will have to take care of me forever. Why ? Dow Corning can not walk away from this without taking the full BLAME for it.The CEO'S should be made to have mandatory implant surgery . If its safe for me then its safe for them. I have a video tape of the explanted material that was removed from my chest cavity.It was horrible ,sticky ,nasty mass that will ultimatly be the reason for my early death. To top it all ,I found out the other day that the thousands of dollars that I 've spent over the years on pain medication was sold to me by DOW CORNING!!! today I don't know what will happen to us all but Dow Corning will emerge unscathed and thusfar have been allowed to commit murder against women for the sake of profit. My implants were put in to replace diseased breast tissue when I was only 23 years old. I was told that they were completely safe,good for a life time and I could even breast and future children. I'm thankful today that I never had more children. This is just not right!!!!! Angry,Tereca Osburne
comments: I think they are not safe and I don't understand why some of these women who are getting breasts implant with not thinking about they health.Think they are stupid for getting them,but they will find out when they have a serious health risk.

comments: VERY BAD FOR YOUR BODY, VERY BAD FOR YOUR HEALTH. ITS KILLING US, AND SEEMS THAT NO ONE CARES. WHERE IS THE LAW, TO STOP ALL THIS , MAKE DOW DO THE RIGHT THING, I DON'T KNOW HOW THE BIG SHOTS SLEEP AT NIGHT. I WAS TOLD BY THE DOCTORS THEY WERE SAFE, AND WOULD LAST AS LONG AS I WOULD. JEAN
comments: After doing a lot of reasearch, I have finally decided that women do not need to get implants.
They should not have to get them just to save their marrage or even to get a husband.
I believe that implants should be banned off the face of the earth. I think that implants are one
okf the worst things women can do to them selves. It really makes me worry about how they
are feeling inside about themselves, truely. Not how they look or what they wear but about
their personality, and character traits they have. IMPLANTS ARE REALLY BAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

comments: My breast are very seriously sore from the implants , My left breast is painful with or without being touched and it has enlarged
I was NOT told of the hazards nor how to take care of my implants
when the surgery was performed. I need advice on a solution as
to having them removed .. I do not trust any doctor so I am in very serious
shape at the present time/ What do I think of breast implants???
I truly believe they should be completely and forever banned for
being distributed to anyone...THEY ARE NOT WORTH THE PAIN I HAVE
SUFFERED OVER THE PAST YEARS WITH MINE!

comments: When I had my Dow implants explanted they were both ruptured. Later I was diagnosed with breast cancer. After a lumpectomy and 8 wks of radiation I am free of cancer. I cannot prove correlation of my b cancer and silicone but I'm sure that the silicone, my dr. could not remove, was involved in my breast cancer. It's coincidental that the cancer was located in the spot where I had an unhealed lesion after the explantation surgery for 6 mths. The remaining silicone has migrated to other parts of my body and caused other physical problems. For example, I had surgery on my foot, my dr. reported that when he cut between my toes a large ball of yellow substance popped out. The dr. was unable to determine what it was. Now I realize that it must have been migrating silicone. I've read reports, and drs concur, that roaming silicone can cause granulomas in the body. You want to know what I think about breast implants---- I can't think of anything else that would cause your body to become so sick. My heart goes out to all my sisters who suffer because we were naive enough to believe that the implants were not harmful. I would be happy to hear from others...... Good luck to all.
