French surgeons welcome back breast prostheses:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

French surgeons have welcomed the lifting of the five-year ban on silicone breast implants. They claim there is no proof of a link between silicone and cancer or autoimmune diseases and point out that the quality of implants has improved both in terms of resistance and lifespan. Some 150,000-200,000 French women have had breast implants over the 35 years they have been available. French surgeons estimate that the number of cosmetic, rather than reconstructive, cases represents 60%. The real figure is more likely to be 80%, according to Le Quotidien du Medecin.
