Yes. If you have had PiP implants our advice is to seek assistance from a medical professional as soon as possible.
It is essential that you approach either your clinic or your GP for them to arrange a scan. You may not have any symptoms to suggest a rupture, but you must get a scan to find out.
Jenny Brown didn’t know that her implants had ruptured, but a scan showed that her PiP implant on her right side had burst, leaking silicone into her body. She’s recently had an operation to remove the implants. Find out more about Jenny’s story here - SCOTTISH PiP VICTIM TELLS OF RUPTURE “NIGHTMARE” .
