PIP breast implants should be removed

New recommendations can be seen here with regard to PIP breast implants. PIP was a French breast implant company that was found to be using less than optimal silicone and therefore was investigated regarding health risks. The link above explains the recommendation from the French Health Minister to have PIP implants removed because of inflammatory risks. We have removed several of these implants and replaced them with Mentor implants which have been shown to be safer by the FDA and use only the highest medical grade silicone, sourced from NuSil Technology which is a local Carpinteria company.

We recommend all patients with PIP see a plastic surgeon for evaluation and recommendations- we are happy to make an appointment for all such patients. Please call 805-969-9004 and speak to Danielle or Susanne to schedule a consultation with Dr. Lowenstein.
