The headlines read that breast implants are linked to higher suicide rates, but reading the study, I don't see any causal linkage. Is this an issue where the MSM gets it wrong, or does the research make any meaningful claims about a link between suicide and implants other than that some depressed and suicidal women have distorted body images that they try to fix with implants.

It appeared in the August 2007 Annals of Plastic Surgery. The study was done at the International Epidemiology Institute in Rockville, Md.; Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tenn.; and the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden.

Anyone know more about this study and what it really says and the actual significance of their conclusions?
