What is Breast Implant Illness?
Breast implant illness (BII) refers to a number of chronic symptoms many women notice after receiving breast implants. It can even lead to additional autoimmune diseases, silicone toxicity, chemical toxicity, biotoxin illness, and heavy metal toxicity. Though these symptoms can occur as a result of almost any foreign object being implanted in your body, they are most commonly associated with breast implant illness due to the millions of women that have received the procedure. Though it can be difficult to properly diagnose, our team at Cameron Wellness and Spa can work with you to provide optimal care and identify which course of treatment may be necessary. Contact our team in Salt Lake City, UT to schedule your initial consultation today.
Breast implant illness can occur with any type of implant, including saline and silicone, and can cause an array of mysterious symptoms. It can make lab tests look totally normal, leading many conventional doctors to ignore them and recommend patients to a psychiatrist. However, Dr. Todd Cameron and Dr. Shawn Postma understand the emotional and financial attachment of breast implants, as well as the complexities of breast implant illness. When identifying BII, we often look for symptoms, including:
- Joint and muscle pain
- Extreme fatigue
- Anxiety and depression
- Breathing problems
- Difficulty sleeping
- Hair loss
- Intestinal issues

How is Breast Implant Illness Treated?
Some tests are available to help detect breast implant illness. These may include the detection of scars around your implant or the identification of an abnormal mass in your breasts. After these tests have been conducted, your physician will let you know the best course of action to alleviate your symptoms. While simply removing the breast implants may help you, many of our patients continue to experience undesirable symptoms due to the persistence of the toxins originally caused by the implant. This means that cleaning up the toxins is incredibly vital in treating BII. It also means it's possible to keep your breast implants — and your self-confidence — intact. During the treatment process, we will usually test you for SIBO before putting you on a detox plan that is designed specifically for your body and needs in order to flush out the toxins caused by the implants.
