Removing French PIP Implants in the United States - Los Angeles Plastic Surgeon

PIP breast implants manufactured in France were reported to contain a lower grade of silicone, making removal of the implants more difficult and time consuming if there is evidence of rupture.  Brazil's Health Ministry recently banned the importation and use of PIP implants in women following the French report.  Other South American countries are soon to follow.


Although Dr. Karamanoukian only uses FDA approved silicone breast implants that adhere to strict safety guidelines placed by the US FDA, he is familiar with the management of breast implants placed in other countries.  He routinely sees patients from South America, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Bahrain, Qatar, Abu Dhabi, and Kuwait.  Schedule a consultation for silicone breast implants.  


Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian provides expertise in the management of difficult breast implant ruptures and capsular contracture.  Schedule a consultation with Dr. Karamanoukian in Beverly Hills or Santa Monica if you wish to discuss your alternatives for PIP breast implant removal or replacement in the Los Angeles area.  Schedule a consultation by calling (310) 998-5533.
