Should we be afraid of breast prostheses?
The fear of breast prostheses is unfounded because an independent body certifies the CE marking, after analysis of the file and audit of the manufacturer’s quality system.
Clinical data has been required since 2007.
Several organizations operate in Europe, only one in France (LNE / G-MED approved by Afssaps), and the manufacturer is free to choose.
It is then this same body which monitors the prostheses manufactured and inspects the laboratories, but it announces its arrival a few days before.
So the patient must be reassured about the placement of breast implants.
