Biba Tanya Lincoln and Breast Implants Scandal
Have 100,000 women been poisoned by their breast implants? Worrying evidence of new scandal emerging: Biba Tanya, 38, from Lancashire, was 28 when she had breast implants.

at the age of 28, Biba Tanya Lincoln would almost automatically trot out the same cliched justifications. ‘I’d say “I did it for me” or “I wanted to feel more confident.”
‘If I felt like really going into it, I’d explain that breastfeeding my eldest had left my boobs uneven – one B-cup and one D-cup.’ But this wasn’t the whole truth, admits the mother-of-three, now 38.
She continues: ‘If I’d been honest, I wasn’t doing it for myself at all. I’d got it into my head that to be attractive I had to have breasts that looked a certain way. And, despite being happily married, undergoing major surgery to achieve it seemed like a perfectly reasonable thing to do.’
It was a decision she came to bitterly regret. A decade after the £4,000 augmentation took her already ample bust to an eye-catching 32F, Biba’s health was in tatters.

She was plagued by a seemingly endless and inexplicable array of symptoms from crushing fatigue to skin problems, hair loss and debilitating pain throughout her body.
Doctors had few answers. But she is convinced of the cause of her problems: her breast implants. And Biba is not alone.
IT WAS AS IF MY BREAST MILK WAS MAKING ME SICK
Five years after Biba’s operation to transform her silhouette, her health began to falter. ‘I was losing my hair, I felt feverish and constantly exhausted,’ she recalls. ‘I was tested for everything, but told I was fine. I was prescribed painkillers, but I didn’t want to live on pills so I just put up with it and carried on.’
When Biba became pregnant with her youngest child, Lola, in 2017, her symptoms accelerated. ‘I felt wretched and was hospitalized with severe vomiting.’
When the baby arrived, things didn’t improve. Biba continues: ‘I was still nauseous, and Lola found it hard to feed. It was as if my milk made her sick. My husband, Kevin, made an offhand comment about how my breasts seemed to be making Lola as sick as she’d made me during pregnancy.
A SURGING DEMANDS FOR ‘EXPLANT’ OPS
Biba is just one of a growing army of women convinced that their breast implants are making them ill. Many have suffered for years with unexplainable symptoms such as fatigue, ‘brain fog’ and memory loss, insomnia, depression, muscle and joint pain, and hair loss.
