DEFECTIVE BREAST IMPLANTS: SJOGREN'S SYNDROME

Nurse with operating tools and chest implants

At Legally Pink Law, we recognize that the multi-billion dollar breast implant industry exists at the expense of women’s health. We celebrate a woman’s right to pursue health and beauty, but we also expect manufacturers of medical devices to uphold their responsibility to their patients.

If you have defective breast implants, leaking fluid or implant encapsulation could manifest in your body as Sjogren’s (SHOW-grins) syndrome. Sjogren’s Syndrome is an immune system disordered characterized by dry eyes and a dry mouth. It often accompanies other immune-system disorders like rheumatoid arthritis and lupus.

Although you can develop Sjogren’s syndrome at any age, most people are older than 40 at the time of diagnosis. The condition is much more common in women. If you believe your Sjogren’s Syndrome can be traced to defective breast implants, contact Legally Pink Law today!
