New implants warning

5th January 2012

A new alert has been issued over faulty breast implants.

It has emerged that thousands more women may be at risk because suspect PIP breast implants were repackaged and sold under a second name. Industry experts estimate that some 5,000 British women have Rofil M-implants, described as simply being PIPs with a different branding.

The warning came as Health Secretary Andrew Lansley said he would consider setting up a national register for breast implants and called on private clinics to pay for any PIP implants that have leaked to be removed.
