I advise patients on whether breast augmentation would be appropriate, the lifetime implications of the surgery, and on the optimal operation and implant choice.
News as of 18 December 2018:
"The CE certificate for textured breast implants and tissue expanders manufactured by Allergan (Microcell ® and Biocell ®) expired on 16 December 2018.The MHRA has advised that Allergan has stopped selling these implants and expanders, and intends to withdraw all remaining supply in European markets. Smooth implants and expanders manufactured by Allergan still have a CE mark. The MHRA advises that patients who have already Allergan breast implants or expanders do not need to have them removed or replaced."
I suggest that patients considering breast augmention, wanting anatomical implants, should at this time chose Mentor implants.
