McGhan Implants Reviewed on 19/07/2015

I was "implanted" with McGhan 300cc McGhan Style 40, low bleed silicone gel implants 4/22/1989. It was the worst decision I have ever made. The damage that ensued until I finally came out of my mental, emotional and physical paralysis and had them removed via an "en-bloc" removal in 2010 (by an amazing specialist in Cleveland - Dr. Lu-Jean Feng who also reconstructed my breasts)....was devastating on every level. Anyone considering implants would do well to seek counseling immediately and correct the problem. it has nothing to do with the size of your breasts....its a problem much larger. Whether you are contemplating silicone or saline....be advised...they are all silicone (remember the shell that holds the saline?). Sure, you may be one of the "lucky" ones who does experience any apparent damage, but it can be a slow, insidious decent into darkness with these devices. They are made from 34 toxic chemicals you`d paint your house with. You may even think you are okay because your symptoms slowly ramp up over time and you are told things like, "you`re getting older", "chronic migraines sometimes happen with age", "maybe you have MS", "maybe you have lupus", "maybe you have sjogren`s, sclerdoma?" and my personal favorite...."It`s all in your head". If your contemplating implants...they won`t save your marriage, they attract parasites (both of the insect and human type). Parasites are attracted to each and every one of the chemicals found in breast implants. Do your research ladies. these devices are on the market for one reason....$$$$. The doctors you will see, the proposed surgeries will drain you of every last bit of your personal and financial dignity. Even if you say you are fine and have never suffered any outcomes from your devices....you`re wrong. I was like you....I said the same thing. I could have a conversation with you and point out exactly which ailments are speaking to you through the toxic time bombs you had surgically installed in your place of nurturing....you will have paid to have someone systematically set up your mass destruction. As I said before, I had my devices installed in 1989 when there was no internet and right before all the media exposure errupted on these devices. I was in shock, disbelief and dismay for years to come. Don`t be a fool.....get into counseling and find out what`s missing in your life....again...it has nothing to do with your boobs. They were created for the feeding of babies.....does any of the stuff I have written above sound "sexy" to you? there is nothing "sexy" about breast implants or self hatred. If you are with someone who likes your implants and wants you to keep them....do yourself a favor and have this person removed from your life as well. One last rant....when these devices are removed from your chest they are treated as HAZARDOUS WASTE and disposed of accordingly......ENOUGH SAID!

McGhan Implants Reviewed on 01/02/2015

I had implants in 6/1986. My plastic surgeon is now deceased and I need to know if I should get them removed. I have had no complications at all, and I also don''t know if they are saline, I remember the Dr. saying they were saline gel. I recently found the Dr that took over my old Drs place and was sent a letter. The letter states " I elected to use double lumen sterile McGann implants, and doesn''t say whats in them. Can you please tell me how I can find out? I saw a Dr. recently and he stated that I should remove and replace? Unsure of what to do! Can you advise or suggest? Thank you!

I had Mcghan silicon implant and one was fine but the left gave so much trouble, incapsulated, necrosis, fistul, had 4 surgery in one month and finally had 1/2 masectomy on the breast and the implant taken out. The right breast after 6 years now has cancer so, I would really recommend you to think and ask all questions and read all the blogs before using them.

McGhan Implants Reviewed on 17/07/2013

I am a RN - baccalaureate degree in nursing. I had breast augmentation surgery with McGhan saline filled implants, silicone devices - they damn near killied me. I started having symptoms within a few months but didn''t realize what was going on right away (or maybe I just didn''t want to acknowledge it, becase I was vain then, and I had paid for them on a credit card). It began with headaches, dry red inflamed eyes, fatigue ... that sort of thing. It progressed to joint pain, muscle pain, all sorts of infections - lots of other symptoms too. Eventually I had the things removed a few years later (they were hard as rocks from the start) but by then it was too late. I went through hell & back trying to figure out what was wrong with me. I was finally sent to a rheumatologist who diagnosed me with autoimmune illnesses: systemic lupus erythematosus [SLE], sojogren''s syndrome, raynaud''s syndrome, and whole host of other things too. I had to stop working eventually. Now I''m on social security disability - living hand to mouth, hardly getting by. I''m too sick to work any more, or do anything else either. My quality of life sucks wind. And that fancy BSN RN RNI worked like hell to get so I could support myself & my family does me no good now. I lost everything, all because I wanted larger breasts. I''m screwed now - good & proper. Please, take my advise to heart: DON''T. DO. IT. PERIOD. You don''t need it. No good will come of putting a foreign object inside your body (filled with God only knows what) just for cosmetic reasons. It doesn''t matter that your friend, mother, sister, neighbor, or the girl at the check out counter has them and "they are okay" - the odds are that YOU could be next telling your story. It is not worth it. I consulted 4 pladtic surgeons over approximately a one year period before taking the plunge - not one surgeon told me of any possible risks to my health other than possible infection, bleeding, capsular contraction, or cosmetic dissatisfaction (I had them all, by the way). I still read blogs by plastic surgeons (most of them male, never had breast augmentation or any sort of silicone device placed inside their own body) banging on about there is no correlation between breast implants [i.e., silicone] and autoimmune disease. Because there is nothing like being there yourself and experiencing it for yourself - "walking the walk" so to speak, to bring your thought process around to a whole different way of thinking. Your body really is your temple, you will live inside it until the day you die. You don''t get another body (although it would be nice if you could). Don''t mess it up just for vanity''s sake. Most of you won''t heed my advise, or maybe you don''t believe it can happen to you. If it happened to me and other women too, it could also happen to you. Are you really willing to risk it? If my story can save even ONE PERSON from my fate - one person whose child doesn''t have to grow up with a sick mom - then I have succeeded. Good luck & God bless. Your body

I had a saline implant after my silicone ruptured and just had the saline removed as it grew so large it was going to burst. My doctor removed it and it was full of amoeba.
