Complaints over the side-effects of breast implants have doubled in just one year including allergic reaction, pain and ‘brain fog’.

Complaints included implants rupturing and capsular contracture – where they turn incredibly hard.

Ruth Walter, of the British Association of Plastic Surgeons, told The Sun: ‘All women considering implants should seek advice from a top surgeon, and be informed of what the operation entails and all potential complications.’
Reports of ruptured implants skyrocketed from 312 to 579 in 2019 while there were 380 of capsular contracture.
Pain complaints rose the most, quadrupling from 48 to 179.
Another 614 complaints were categorised as unusual — with ailments including anxiety, tiredness, rashes, ‘brain fog’, hair loss and depression.
The MHRA said: ‘Anyone experiencing symptoms they think are associated with implants should report to us via our Yellow Card scheme.’
