Abstract
One of the most popular cosmetic procedures is breast augmentation through the use of breast implants, giving women an opportunity to enhance their physical appearance and well-being. However, this new appearance also brings the associated health risks regarding Breast Implant Illness (BII) and the development of Breast Implant-Associated Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma (BIA-ALCL). This abstract comprehensively reviews the literature review and information on the associated risk between breast implants, Breast Implant Illness (BII), and Breast Implant-Associated Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma (BIA-ALCL). In the current market, there are various types of breast implants, including saline and silicone made with a silicone shell with either a smooth or textured surface. We look at current information from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the World Health Organization (WHO) to understand the information given to patients and physicians to help women make the best decisions for them with all the information given. Breast augmentations were up 44% to about 365,000 performed in 2021 and roughly were up to 32% to about 148,000 having them removed. While implantation is still a popular elective surgery, implant removal is also growing at an increasing rate (The Aesthetic Society, 2022).
