Breast implant safety advice from Mr Kelvin Ramsey

Advice on breast implant safety

On Monday, BBC Panorama’s programme focused on medical implants, after working with the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists and a large number of media organisations around the world including the British Medical Journal, who had highlighted what they feel to be regulatory deficiencies in bringing medical implants to the healthcare sector and their subsequent surveillance in patients.

In light of this programme, the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS), of which I’m a member, has released a statement focusing on breast implant safety and giving advice to any previous or prospective patients: “As a result of the media attention regarding medical devices, many of our patients will be understandably concerned and we publish a statement by our partners, the International Collaboration of Breast Registry Activities (ICOBRA), to clarify some questions around the safety of breast implants.”
