Occasionally we call other plastic surgeons’ offices to find out what kind of information they provide to their patients. Unfortunately, we have found that the receptionists at many offices often provide very poor, or even false information with regard to the safety of breast implants. We are not sure whether the information they provide reflects the opinion of their surgeon, or whether they are just poorly informed. We suspect that they are at least reflecting the bias of their surgeon. This is particularly the case with regard to saline and gel breast implants. One office we called indicated that they never do gel implants because they are bad, and another office told us they never do saline implants because they are bad. The reasons they provided where even more interesting. The office where the surgeon did not perform gel implants, informed us that gel implants were bad because the gel goes all over the body and makes people sick. Really now, do you honestly believe the FDA, after all the publicity, would have released gel breast implants back on the market (after 14 years of intensive study) if this were true? Clearly not. The office whose surgeon does not do saline implants, said saline implants were bad because when they leak, they just go flat. Pretty obvious, but why is this bad, when it is a simple matter to replace a leaking implant.
