I don't know much about
them except for when there was a lot of bad press about
them years ago when a lot of women got sick when the implants leaked. I can't back this up with anything, but I'm guessing it wouldn't be the best thing for people with illnesses like lupus to put a foreign body into their body without a good medical reason, but I could be wrong. You could always ask your doctor about
it. Unfortunately I have the opposite problem and feel like I need some taken off, lol.
