Breast Implant Illness (BII) has become a global epidemic! Most women who are ill are told it is any number of other diseases and often that it is “all in your head”. Women believe they are sick for no discernible reason and their doctors are often unaware of this devastating and deadly disease because it has been denied and covered up by device manufacturers, plastic surgeons and the FDA.
Andria Hiselman grew up in sunny California in the town of Huntington Beach. In 1984 she was doing some Commercials and tinkering in modeling. In June of 84 she was on the surgical table getting her first set of breast implants. This led to bigger opportunities. Poster, calendar, product ads, billboard and free bikinis. All of this would turn out to be the biggest regret of her life. Thirty three years later, after 18 years of illness she explanted her 450 cc silicone implants. She wants to share with other women what life with implants is truly like. Today she is embracing her A cup status and wants to spread the message of self acceptance and self love.
