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.

I would never get implants (I have beautiful 40 yr old B's..hehe), but I hear so much about auto immune illnesses and how ramptant they have become. I saw some story (forgot the show) about some woman diagnosed with Lupus and her dr felt it was from the implants.
