It's strange to think that when it comes to product recalls, there's more regulation and process for items like electronics, furniture, machinery and even food than there are for breast implants. In fact, there is no universal process for notifying breast implant patients of faulty products, putting hundreds if not thousands of women in potential danger if their implants were to rupture. That's why here at the Good Surgeon Guide we decided to be part of the solution and launch the Breast Register, the first centralised resource for breast implant patients, doctors and industry leaders. This means, if ever there is another major breast implant recall (such as PIP in Dec 2011), you'll be notified quicker, given actionable steps and hopefully help save lives. So, if you are a recipient of a breast implant procedure or a breast doctor, please take a moment to register the procedure today on the Breast Register and help the Good Surgeon Guide be the starting point for any future implant issues.
