Silicone Implants

Physicians are required by law to provide written information to patients considering silicone implant surgery (Cosmetic Implant Act of 1992, B&P §§ 2259, 2259.5). The standardized written summary entitled, "Things to Consider Before Your Silicone Implant Surgery" is no longer available. However, a physician may substitute, in place of the standardized written summary for silicone implants, the written information authorized for use by the Federal Food & Drug Administration, prepared by the manufacturer, based upon the physician package insert.
