In the UK, the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) is advising breast implant surgeons not to use silicone gel filled breast implants manufactured by the French company Poly Implant Prothese (PIP).  The MHRA was informed by the French medical device regulatory authority (AFSSAPS) that they have suspended the company’s marketing, distribution and export of these products. They found that since 2001 PIP implants have been filled with an unauthorised silicone gel which differs from the originally approved material which could increase the risk. YIKES!

So MRHA has recommended to plastic surgeons NOT to use the PIP implants and if you have already had a breast augmentation with these implant, go back to your plastic surgeon to find out whether you may be advised to have them exchanged.
