Hundreds of thousands of french made breast implants have been recalled – sending women all over the globe into a panic. These implants which are no longer in use in France, have been linked to an increased rate of rupture, and possible increased incidence of cancer.
But good news for readers – as you may recall from my interviews with several of the surgeons (as written in the book) – none of the surgeons I interviewed used french implants. The majority used FDA approved implants (only one brand currently FDA approved.) Several others use german made implants*.. But this is an example of the details I’ve ferreted out for my readers..
* Brand information and other details are available in the book, “Bogota: a hidden gem guide to surgical tourism.”
