Cereform breast implants and associated sizers recalled in Australia

The TGA has suspended the Cereform silicone gel-filled breast implants and associated sizers from the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods effective 23 May 2014 for a period of 6 months unless earlier revoked by the TGA.

The TGA advises consumers of the following:

“If you have received a Cereform breast implant and did not experience an infection soon after the surgery, then you should not experience any problems associated with this issue. An infection would be recognised by localised pain at the site of the implant and possibly an increase in body temperature.”
