Without a doubt breast augmentation operations are one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries, if not the most. And the most common and successful way of performing this procedure is to enhance the breast volume by fitting a silicone implant, either above or below the chest muscles, depending on patients physiology and expectations.

According to the NHS, some 47,000 British women had PIP implants fitted in, mostly in private clinics while a small number of them done on the NHS. To check whether if your implants are PIP or not, you can simply check the certificate you have been given following your surgery, or if you don’t have such details, it is recommendable for you to contact the clinic/surgeon who performed the procedure. If you had your implants fitted on the NHS and if they were PIP implants, you should already have received an information letter.
