This episode serves as a capstone of sorts for the resources I've created surrounding breast implant associated health problems, more commonly known as "Breast Implant Illness." Today I had the pleasure of talking with board certified plastic surgeon and MY personal explant surgeon, Dr. Brian Lee, on all things breast implant issues. We talk about:
-His journey into the profession, and how his own struggle with psoriatic arthritis led him down a path that blended his knowledge as a surgeon with more holistic/full-systems healing
-How he got involved with the Breast Implant Illness community
-What Breast Implant Illness is
-Some potential causes of/triggers for health complications from breast implants
-How he learned about BII in his own patients
-The hot topic question of, "Will it happen to everyone with implants?"
-Whether or not he feared the success of his practice if he began explanting women and acknowledging BII
-Where the medical/surgical community and medical device community could use improvements for patient health as it relates to breast implants in the future
-So much more!
This conversation was truly a great one as Dr. Lee remains open minded and non-dogmatic around an issue that tends to polarize many. Find Dr. Lee here: Website Instagram Facebook
