There has been a lot of media interest in breast implants of late, particularly the Poly Implant Prothese (PIP) breast implants.

In March 2010 French regulatory authorities advised that the manufacturer of PIP implants had used unapproved materials which may affect the safety of PIP implants. There are also reports that these implants may rupture more than other implants.

Dr Mark Lee has never used PIP implants and so the concern surrounding PIP implants does not apply to any of our breast augmentation or breast reconstruction patients. Having said that, if you have any concerns regarding your implants please contact us on 9382 3340 and make a time to come in and see us.
