Breast Implant Illness

Breast Implant Illness (BII) has become a hot-button issue as of late, both in the media and as reported by many of our members based on what they’re seeing in their practices.

Unlike BIA-ALCL, a scientifically-known condition linked to implants, Breast Implant Illness (BII) falls into a gray area, as there is no science behind it yet to either confirm or deny its existence. As such, we hope to support our members as advocates for their patients by providing useful materials including the talking points below as research into Breast Implant Illness (BII) continues.

Breast Implant-Associated ALCL

ASAPS is committed to patient safety, advancing the quality of care, and practicing medicine based upon the best available scientific evidence on breast implants. We have issued joint statements with the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) regarding Breast Implant-Associated ALCL (BIA-ALCL).
