PIP Breast Implant Alert

If you have had or know of someone who has had breast augmentation/reconstruction with PIP silicone breast implants, please be aware of a recent  “alert” by the ASAPS (American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery) and the ISAPS (International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons). These breast implants, which are not FDA approved but are available in many foreign countries, are manufactured with inferior “industrial silicone” with unknown impurities and their incidence of rupture is high (possibly as high as 11% per year).  Removal (and replacement with FDA approved silicone implants) is recommended. Please see the following link or feel free to contact me for more information.   http://www.surgery.org/private/pip-implants-guide
