Silicone breast brings women to suicide

Silicone breast brings women to suicideIn the course of a number of studies have shown that the suicide rate among women with cosmetic breast implants surprisingly high, which causes new disputes concerning this procedure when the Management of the food and drug administration (FDA) decides whether to allow the silicone implants back on the market. In the latter study, the results of which were published yesterday, found that in Finland the percentage of suicides among women with cosmetic implants are three times higher than among the population as a whole. This coincides with the results of studies conducted in Sweden and America. All three studies also found that the overall mortality rate among women with implants is the same as the population as a whole or below, and this gives reason to believe that implants do not cause disease. The question of why women with implants are three times more likely to commit suicide, a matter of controversy, especially at a time when the FDA is preparing to consider the application of the company Inamed Corp. on the return of silicone implants on the market. In 1992, the FDA has restricted their use by women who have undergone surgery to remove breast cancer, and those who participate in clinical trials. Studies have shown that among women undergoing surgery, the suicide rate is not above average. Some scientists believe that a high percentage of suicides reflects the psychological profile of women seeking to install implants. According to them, this group psychological problems are more common than among the rest of the population. But from the point of view of others, a high level of suicide is associated with difficulties and pain that sometimes make themselves felt for many years after surgery. According to researcher and epidemiologist at the University hospital center in Ulrich Veronica Kut, having studied history 3521 women who have resorted to surgery using breast implants in the period from 1965 to 1993, the researchers found that 15 former patients of cosmetic surgeon committed suicide. "Thus, in the percentage of women with silicone or hydrogel breast drove suicide three times more often than those who did not resort to such cosmetic surgery," said Coote. According to her, suicide attempts occurred, on average, 10 years after the visit of the cosmetic surgeon. Although the FDA has banned the use of silicone implants for cosmetic purposes, the popularity of saline implants is growing. According to the American society of plastic surgeons, last year on the operation went more than 225 thousand women, and if silicone implants were available, they would have been even more. Many women believe that silicone implants look more natural and pleasant to the touch. In the article accompanying the Finnish study, Professor of the University of Pennsylvania Devir Sarver stated that plastic surgeons should strive to understand the psychological and emotional state of women willing to do cosmetic surgery. He wrote that if a woman shows signs of instability or sought psychiatric help before you have surgery, your surgeon should be consulted. Changing the shape of the breast is one of the most popular types of plastic surgery. Today in cosmetic clinics in the UK and USA operations of this type are one of the first places, second in popularity only lipocalin (removal of excess fatty tissue). In 2002, about 250 thousand American women resorted to the services of plastic surgeons to "correct" figure. According to the American Society for aesthetic plastic surgery, it is several times more than in 1997. The Washington Post (translation NEWSru.com).
