How Safe Are Breast Implants?

Join us for the World’s 1st Multidisciplinary Conference on Breast Implant Safety

Leeds Beckett University in association with PIP ACTION CAMPAIGN are delighted to announce the first UK conference on breast implant safety

How safe are breast implants? Global, multidisciplinary and patient perspectives on the safety of breast implants

Enormous numbers of women around the world have breast implants which are widely believed to be safe. So why have French, Canadian, Australian and US regulators recently banned some types and brands of silicone and polyurethane implants? What is now known about the safety of breast implants since the PIP implant scandal emerged in the UK in 2012.

There are certainly very real concerns about links between breast implants and the development of cancer (not limited to but including Breast Implant Associated Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma or BIA-ALCL) as well as other extremely serious and concerning symptoms, resulting in widespread diagnoses of ASIA (autoimmune/inflammatory syndrome induced by adjuvants) increasingly referred to as Breast Implant Illness or BII.

Since the PIP public health crisis, impacting on a million women and their families around the globe, the manufacture, implantation and regulation of breast implants have been subjected to closer scrutiny.

What do we really know about the safety of breast implants?

Please consider joining us in Leeds, UK, 24-25 June 2020 for answers to some of the most pressing questions and concerns about the safety of silicone and polyurethane breast implants.

Among the invited keynote speakers, are internationally renowned medical scientists, researchers, specialists, experts, plastic surgeons and patient advocates.

How safe are breast implants? Global, multidisciplinary and patient perspectives on the safety of breast implants is a conference for health professionals and patients: for breast cancer patients considering reconstruction, women considering breast augmentation, for radiologists, oncologists, doctors and surgeons. This is a conference particularly for those concerned about the women living with implants and worrying symptoms.

Everyone with an interest in breast implant safety is invited!
