Very good points. I’d like to add breast implant illness, an autoimmune-ish illness many women get after implants. They haven’t studied how common it is, but the link mentions a facebook group with 100,000 members.

Probably stems from having foreign bodies inside you long term. Bodies generally react very poorly to anything foreign, whether it’s implants or donor tissue.
