- The review into the Cosmetic Industry, requested by Health Secretary Andrew Lansley, is expected to be released later this month.
- It was launched after around 40,000 women in the UK received implants manufactured by the now-closed French company Poly Implant Prostheses (PIP), mostly in private UK clinics.
- The implants were linked to the death of a French woman from a rare form of cancer called anaplastic large cell lymphoma.
- The implants were filled with non-medical grade silicone intended for use in mattresses and have been linked to rupture and swelling in the body.
- British experts have however said ruptured PIP breast implants should not cause any long-term health problems.
