The Irish health ministry has responded to European Parliament and Commission calls for better information on breast augmentation surgery. The resulting booklet "Breast Implants: Information for Women Considering Breast Implants", published by a sub-committee of the Irish Medicines Board's Advisory Committee for Medical Devices, covers a "comprehensive range of topics", spanning: the types of implants, the short-term effects of surgery and the long-term risks of breast implantation. Copies are available free-of-charge from the Department of Health & Children (customer services).
