Nearly 400,000 women, every year, in the United States get breast implants. The story of everyday women who find themselves and their breasts in the tangled and confusing intersection of health, money, science, and beauty. Women with debilitating illnesses - joint pain, chronic fatigue, scleroderma - are linking these problems to the implants. Even though the FDA recently lifted its restrictions on silicone implants and approved them for wide-scale use, many serious questions remain regarding breast implant safety. Reveals that the conversation on implant safety is far more complex than simple pros and cons.

The information is a bit dated, but this is still worth watching. I particularly valued the side-by-side stories of one woman having implants put in for cosmetic reasons , and another having them taken out for health reasons. Not for the squeamish, with footage of surgery and the absolutely disgusting removed remnants of ruptured implants. I found the comments of the husband of the woman having them inserted, valuable and candid; he was saying the politically correct things but it seemed to me that they came from the heart.

This movie is a "must watch" for anyone even remotely interested in getting breast implants. Even if you are not interested in getting them but enjoy documentaries....I found I learned a lot about the implants and the industry which quite frankly disgusted and angered me.

I immediately emailed many of my girlfriends after watching this doc and told them the facts about this very UNSAFE operation.
