If you’re considering a breast explant procedure, you’re not alone. Thousands of women across the country suffer in silence due to the negative stigma surrounding breast explantation. However, women report a negative effect from their breast implants that only grow worse with time.
After 33 years in the medical practice, Dr. Fredric Barr has decided to stop performing breast implants and has shifted his focus to educating women about breast implant removal surgery. To help spread the word to women suffering from Breast Implant Illness, Dr. Barr started the Breast Explant Solution Group on Facebook.
The Breast Explant Solution Group has become a source of support, community, and answers for hundreds of women. Dr. Barr and his staff frequent the group to answer questions about breast implants and the breast explant procedure. In the past two months, the group has doubled in membership.
Hundreds of women have benefitted from being a part of the Breast Explant Solution Group. Here's what you can expect from joining this safe space.
Hear Other Womens’ Stories
If you’re suffering from symptoms of Breast Implant Illness or Breast Implant-Associated Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma, you may feel alone in your struggle. Joining the Breast Explant Solution Group can allow you to hear from hundreds of other women going through the same difficulties you are.
Women regularly post the symptoms, struggles, and discomforts associated with their breast implants on the support page. You may be surprised to learn how common symptoms like headaches, fatigue, brain fog, and joint pain are for other women who have received breast implants.
Joining this group also allows you to hear stories from women who have successfully undergone explant surgery. You can learn more about the recovery process first-hand and understand how surgery affects BII or BIA ALCL symptoms.
Hearing from other women going through similar struggles can provide you with a source of comfort and community, helping you understand that you are not alone.
If you are experiencing a challenging bout of symptoms, you can share your situation in the support group. Other women who have struggled with the same symptoms or illnesses can comment and remind you that you are not alone. These women can also provide guidance and advice as you make your decision about breast implant removal surgery.
Posting your story to a community of like-minded women and plastic surgery experts can help you feel supported and understood.
If you’re considering breast explant surgery, you probably have a million questions running through your head. What’s the recovery like? How much does the surgery cost? Are there any side effects that could persuade you not to choose surgery? How will your breasts look after your recovery?
The Breast Explant Solution Group is an excellent place to ask questions about breast implants and explant surgery. You don’t have to feel like you’re bothering anyone or asking stupid questions—the community is happy to listen and answer with their own experiences.
Even better, Dr. Barr and his staff engage the support group and provide specific answers about their techniques from a medical standpoint. Instead of calling or emailing the office, you can post your questions in the group and receive answers quickly.
Change the Stigma
Many women feel embarrassed or ashamed about removing their breast implants. Some may see their implants as a part of their identity, and they fear how their breasts will look after surgery. Others regret their implants and feel shame about reversing something they originally wanted.
The Breast Explant Solution Group is working to change the stigma surrounding breast implants and the breast explant process. In recent years, Dr. Barr has worked tirelessly to share information about breast explant surgery and other women’s experiences with breast implants.
Many women are unaware of the risks of getting breast implants. Joining the group can help you become one of the many women looking to change public opinion on breast implants. Please note, there are many women around the world with no negative side effects from breast implants.
