Allergan Implants Update

As you may be aware, there has been a scare about Allergan implants. Allergan following the suspension of their implants, have withdrawn their sale from the UK and Europe. However, the medical regulatory authorities have stated that there is no increased risk of health problems with these implants and therefore have not recommended the removal of implants which are already in the patients’ breasts.

Having said that it has raised many concerns. We want to reassure you that we are fully aware of these developments and are available to perform free check-ups for your breasts. We strongly recommend everyone with Allergan implants to come in for a check-up. Particularly those whose with implants are 5 years or older.

Please call 0800 170 7171 to book your free check-up appointment.
