Last month, our Dr. Pat gave a sensitive response to a woman concerned about the recent French breast-implant scandal, with expert input from respected plastic surgeon Dr. John Sherman. The response from concerned women was overwhelming, and we’re further concerned by today’s news from the BBC that at least 7,000 more women have received those suspect “PIP” implants than was originally known.

By then, we had already asked Dr. Sherman about the process required should  you discover that you had received one of the suspect implants. In the video below, Dr. Sherman again explains who’s at risk, who might be, and what this relatively minor surgery of removal is like. WVFCers who have had breast augmentations performed abroad should probably check out this five-minute presentation, and perhaps discuss further with their gynecologist.
