Breast implant illness (BII) is a grouping of symptoms that occur in people who have breast implants. While there isn’t an official medical diagnosis for BII, there are telling symptoms that may include the following:

  • Joint pain
  • Fatigue
  • Dry eyes
  • Brain fog
  • Headaches
  • Muscle pain
  • Unexpected respiratory problems
  • Dry mouth
  • Insomnia
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Skin rashes
  • Hair loss
  • Gastrointestinal problems

Doctors diagnose breast implant illness by ruling out other health conditions, and the treatment involves removing the implants. Most people see symptoms lessen and improve once the implants are removed, but the scars and discoloration that can be left behind are emotionally and psychologically traumatic to deal with. This is why medical tattoo and permanent makeup expert Ruth Swissa offers the best breast implant illness treatments to improve the aesthetics of the breasts so that people will look beautiful and regain their self-confidence.

BII Symptoms and Diagnosis

BII symptoms may develop at different rates, and some may develop as soon as a few days following the breast implant surgery while others may only notice the symptoms years following the surgery. It is not infrequent that those experiencing BII symptoms may also be diagnosed with specific autoimmune or connective tissue disorder. Potential causes of BII have been attributed to the body’s inflammatory reaction to foreign objects, the body’s response to particular approaches to the insertion of breast implants and surgical techniques, or the body’s reaction to specific components of breast implants (i.e., silicone).

Areola Pigmentation is One of Many Breast Implant Illness Treatments

In many cases, the removal of breast implants improves or completely diminishes BII symptoms. Following the removal of breast implants, women are left with discoloration and prominent incision scars post-surgery. This is where the areola pigmentation procedures are called to action.

Areola pigmentation is a restorative process, re-pigmenting any abnormal colorations caused by post-surgical cutaneous scarring. With 20 years of experience and a third generation in the field, Ruth Swissa, C.M.M specializes in restoring pigment to the nipple-areola complex using organic pigments and masterful color-blending techniques. The application of skin-colored organic pigments to the restored areas of the areola is a less invasive supplement or alternative to the invasive scar revision process, which for many years was the only available method of restoring balanced coloration to the area.

When you invest in areola pigmentation with Ruth Swissa to correct the color of your nipple area, not only are you in the care of the country’s most famous medical tattooing expert who has been featured on the hit TV show ‘Botched’ more than 10 times due to her advanced understanding of permanent makeup within the medical field, but you will benefit from a medical tattooing expert who studied fine art and has an advanced understanding of aesthetic beauty, As a result, art meets science, and you are left with natural-looking breasts that have no signs of having dealt with BII or the removal of breast implants.

The Visual Remnants of Breast Implant Illness Can Be Treated with Scar Camouflage

Scar camouflage is another popular breast implant illness treatment that Ruth Swissa specializes in. Scar camouflage (also known as, skin camouflage) deposits ink that has been masterfully blended to offset the stark scar pigment. The color is primarily tested on the prospective patient’s skin for reactivity and absorption (termed a “patch-test”). This ensures that the healed color best matches the natural melanin.

Scar camouflage is a procedure Ruth Swissa utilizes to blend the appearance of discoloration to the breast and she is a member of Dr. Kevin Brenner’s Breast Team — a network of specialists working to combat the effects of BII and provide assistance through every step of the journey.

Many people who have scars left over from having their breast implants removed due to BII suffer from unnecessary anxiety, so using scar camouflage to blend the appearance of the scar with the surrounding skin is crucial to eliminating all the physical signs of the procedure that was performed, and by doing so the patient’s self-esteem and self-confidence will increase so they can live full, happy lives without the depression and anxiety that breast scars can cause.
