Should we be afraid of breast prostheses?
There is no need to fear breast implants as they are certified with a CE marking by an independent body that analyses the product and audits the manufacturer’s quality system.
Since 2007, clinical data is required by manufacturers wishing to obtain the CE marking.
Several independent bodies operate in Europe, but only one in France (LNE/G-MED approved by Afssaps), and the manufacturer is free to choose.
It is the same body that monitors how the prostheses is manufactured and inspects the laboratories in surprise visits announced several days before.
Therefore, the patient can rest assured when getting their breast implants.
