Recall of French Breast Implants- Update

Kim Willsher of the Los Angeles Times,  reports from Paris that the founder of a breast implant company at the center of an international health scare was arrested Thursday in an early-morning police raid on his luxury home in the south of France.


Jean-Claude Mas of Poly Implant Prothese (PIP), which is embroiled in an international health scare, has acknowledged using silicone not approved for medical use.  Although I have never used PIP or any non-FDA approved implants, they have been used in the United States, including in Minnesota.  If anyone suspects that they might have received this type of implant, I recommend that they consult with their cosmetic surgeon immediately.
