If you know just a little bit about breast augmentation, you might know that it involves silicone.
But sometimes you can know just enough to be dangerous, and one of the most dangerous things you can do is to get raw silicone injections in the breast.
Shady Underground Doctors
Sound odd? It’s something that actually happens. When women go to underground clinics to get treatments like breast augmentation more cheaply, they can sometimes run into frauds posing as doctors who perform this odd procedure.
And raw silicone isn’t even the worst of these procedures. That’s right, women are getting injected with all sorts of unsavory items, including cement. And these injections can be deadly.
Even just raw silicone, besides sometimes forming a blocky gravel like substance under the skin, can be extremely deadly if it blocks blood vessels.
How does the gravel like tissue form? You may not realize, but it’s actually scar tissue. When your body builds scar tissue around the silicone, it hardens over time.
Silicone Implants Are Not an Injectable
Remember, breast augmentation is a surgical procedure. If it’s ever being marketed to you as an injectable, that’s simply not safe.
Actual silicone implants have an outer silicone shell filled with silicone. It’s not as simple as directly injecting that gel into the body. Unfortunately, the body simply doesn’t work that way.
If you want to get breast augmentation, it’s imperative to find a Board Certified Doctor who knows what they’re doing. When it comes to your body, you simply don’t skimp out. And that’s especially true when it comes to surgery.
In fact, even if you save money now, you’re just going to cause an expense later fixing health problems — not to mention the way these health problems affect your quality of life.
