While preparing for my recent MiroVerve review, I came across a newspaper article that claimed there were no long-term side-effects or health concerns in regards to silicon breast implants.
The research was apparently done by research professionals and though the particular implants in question stood a 15% – 30% chance of rupturing within the first decade, they claimed there were no serious health risks if the silicon liquid started to get soaked up by body tissue.
What is even more disturbing, is that the implants they were testing, were made of industrial silicon and not from medically safe silicon. Scary thought, no?
The reason they were performing these tests in the first place was because the manufacturer was facing a major lawsuit for not using medically approved materials.
This leaves me with the question: were their findings really that what they reported, or were these lab-experts paid off by the company who made the implants in the first place? It is hard to know for sure, but my suspicion points towards the latter. I have no proof or evidence to prove my case though!
Whatever the situation, I believe another independent case-study and review should be done to find out the exact truth in the matter.
Reality is this: a very high percentage of women who get breast implants, get them removed again. Makes you question why they got them in the first place.
It is sad that beautiful actresses and role models of our society fall in to the whole cosmetic surgery trap. This one here (Heidi Montag) is a prime example.
Just look at the before and after picture. Wasn’t she pretty to begin with? I think so!
And yet she went ahead and had 13 cosmetic surgeries done to herself in a rather short period of time.
I have nothing against her and I don’t want to single her out and pick on her (I am certain she is a great lady) but my point is: why all that trouble?
Fact is, once you start with it, you get addicted to it. You start noticing all the little things on your body that could get improved through a surgery, and tens of thousands of dollars later (once aging kicks in), you start spending even more to try and reverse all the cosmetic changes you made through the years. Sad, isn’t it?
In fact, even Heidi – apparently – had her initial implants removed, saying they hurt her pretty bad despite her constantly taking painkillers. She wished – according to some sources – to just go back to what she used to be before all the plastic and silicon was added.
Poor girl 🙁
My point is this: why spend so much money, go through so much pain, and deal with so much frustration when most (if not all) of these results could have been better achieved – at a fraction of the cost – through natural means?
What is wrong with having to work out a little more often instead of getting a tuck job? Or with using natural breast enlargement serums instead of getting dangerous implants? Whatever happened to enhancing natural feminine beauty – naturally?
Going the natural route is the only way to be the master of your own body instead of your body becoming the master over you. Don’t change the beautiful image you were given. If anything, enhance it safely without risking your very being. There is nothing worse then having to live with regrets for the rest of your life.
I would be curious to hear your thoughts on the matter,
