The National Breast Register launches

There weren’t many people that didn’t hear about the much publicised PIP Breast Implant scandal back in 2010. Thousands of women were affected although to what extent became difficult to judge due to record keeping at that time. Although not directly affected as I have never used the implants in question, I saw and still see patients whose original providers are no longer in business but want the implants removing for peace of mind more than anything else. I see the launch of the National Breast Register as another welcome step towards the safeguarding and protection of our patients and would urge patients to confirm that their provider is registered in the scheme prior to surgery.

The register will be managed by the NHS to begin with and will initially be used for the collation of breast implant information although it is expected to be rolled out across all cosmetic implants over time including Calf and Buttock Implants.

I use Nagor implants for Breast Augmentation, all of Nagor’s products are manufactured in facilities compliant with the ISO 13485 standards and requirements demanded for class III sterile breast implant medical devices and in accordance with ISO and EN requirements and have CE mark certification. Nagor`s silicone breast implants are manufactured with high-performance silicone elastomer layers to improve and enhance the integrity of the outer shell, as well as a completely unique 360 degree barrier layer to minimise the possibility of gel diffusion and to maintain the shape of the implant. Their ranges have over 270 different options designed to find a perfect shape, size and lift for patients.

If you are considering a Breast Augmentation, I offer confidential consultations at clinics in Warwick, Coventry or Nuneaton. For more information visit my website or call 07468 418 419 to book a consultation.
