Breast implant illness (BII) is a general term used to describe a broad range of physical symptoms some women with breast implants are experiencing, according to the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery.  The term is currently not an official medical diagnosis, but ABCS says it has become synonymous with certain inflammatory symptoms that may or may not be the result of, or exacerbated by, having breast implants. The group addresses the issues and attempts to educate existing and potential patients in a recent blog post.
