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. However, as with any other medical procedure, not just the team who are performing the operation, or the clinic/hospital where the operation is performed, quality of material used in the procedure also carries utmost importance for the success of the operation as well as the patients’ well-being.

PIP implants, having their name from the French company Poly Implant Prostheses (PIP), had been withdrawn from the UK in 2010. It was found that they were fraudulently manufactured with unapproved silicone gel which caused the implants to be for more prone to rupturing in comparison to the other brands. According to the NHS, the risk of PIP implants rupturing is 2 to 6 times higher than the standard implants.

While this does not pose any major health risk, the experience of having ruptured implants is definitely not a pleasant one. Beyond the simple change in breast shape, mostly causing an irregular and unaesthetic appearance, ruptured implants could also discomfort the patient with pain. Symptoms of an implant rupture includes:

  • Lumpiness or swelling in an around the breast
  • Change in breast shape 
  • Redness
  • Pain and tenderness
  • A burning sensation
  • Enlarged lymph nodes in the armpit

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.

If you have PIP implants fitted in, you can simply contact us to book your Breast Implant Replacement surgery and replace your risky PIP implants with top-notch implants at our clinic with the package prices starting from £2965.
