Ever since the explosion of booty fetishism at the beginning of the new millennium, breast augmentation has found a new mainstream acceptance, which has kept prices relatively cheap and horror stories at a minimum. The latest technological advances make consumers feel more natural and healthy, but some health professionals are saying “HOLD ON!”

According to Reuters, the implants now at the center of a worldwide health scare came from the now-defunct French company Poly Implant Prothese (PIP) and appear to have an abnormally high rupture rate. That risk, though typically low, is present in all implants.

The devices are only likely to last 20 to 25 years. There are also other risks, like risks of infection, leakage or bleeding, possible creasing and kinking of the breast tissue, and temporary loss of sensation.

Almost everyone is guaranteed to need further surgery down the road, and if you get them early enough, that could mean more than once as well.

    • Perverted Alchemist

      In America, that is an old saying. It’s actually a response to people who like to complain a lot. I said that in reference to the nature of the implants- it’s bad, I know, LOL!!!

      Complain a lot….you know they are out to damage a very integral part of our bodies?! I just seen you commenting on the adult nursing blah blah blah post….if you like nursing you should occupy this movement of complaints! I’m disappointed PA! When are you taking me on a motorcycle ride?!

      Nah, African Mami, the phrase was in reference to complaining, I never said that I was saying the people with implants were. I wanted to say something else, but couldn’t think of anything other than that- my apologies. Some of my references tend to fly over people’s heads on here.

      I’m well aware of the damages and health problems that breast implants cause. What I want to know is why are there numerous women lining up to put themselves in harm’s way in order to look good? It’s not enough to be happy with themselves and the way they are???? Is plastic surgery worth the trouble of improving one’s self-image?

      As far as the motorcycle ride, I’ll take you where you wanna go- and I promise I won’t go over 100 MPH, LOL!!!
