What are your thoughts on Silimed Breast Implants?

Question:Your Questions Answered by the Surgeons at Aurora Clinics

Could you tell me if you are still recommending Silimed implants as I have recently heard rumours that the polyurethane coating can cause cancer? What are your thoughts on this as I currently have PIPs and do not want to replace them for ones which may become another potential risk!


Many thanks for your interesting email. We have discussed this matter with the manufacturer and they assure us that the information is outdated and that the balance of scientific evidence shows that there are no real problems with these implants.

However, purely as a precaution Aurora Clinics have decided not to use them going forwards. I hope this answers your question.

Best Wishes,

Mr Adrian Richards & The Aurora Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery Team
