You are about to make a very personal decision concerning your breast implants. By opting for a Pure Polyurethane implant, you are assured of the highest quality and security of the Silimed Product Replacement Program – SPRP.
MORE SECURITY FOR YOU
Silimed offers you a program for your lifetime. In the event of the PU implant envelope rupturing, a new SILIMED PU implant will be made available to your doctor through our authorized distributors.
Silimed also offers to you the replacement for ten years in the case of capsular contracture (Baker grade III or IV), or rotation of the implant. The surgery has to be performed by a qualified surgeon in accordance with the instructions for use of Silimed PU implants and following current surgical techniques.
This program does not cover the costs of a new operation (doctor’s fees, admission to hospital and other expenses related to hospitalization and medications), but only offers to replace the PU implant.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS:
Silimed will provide a replacement of your Pure Polyurethane implant free of charge on a lifetime basis if there is proof of damage to the integrity of the envelope (rupturing). In case of capsular contracture (Baker grade III or IV), or rotation of the implant, Silimed will provide a replacement for up to ten years after implantation.
The implant provided free of charge will be a Pure Polyurethane implant of the same type as used in the previous operation, but you will be free to choose a different size.
No request for compensation will be accepted other than the free replacement Pure Polyurethane implant.
WHAT TO DO IF YOU SUSPECT THAT YOU NEED TO USE THE SPRP:
Make an appointment immediately with your doctor for an evaluation of the situation.
If it is necessary to ask Silimed for a PU implant, follow these instructions:
- It is essential send simultaneously to SILIMED the doctor’s report and examination (MRI or the equivalent) through your local distributor.
- Following confirmation of the above-mentioned adverse effects by means of examination (MRI or the equivalent), your doctor will contact our distributor, who will provide the implant for the operation.
- Following the operation, we request your doctor to return the removed PU implant to SILIMED through the local distributor.
The removal operation must be preferable performed by the same surgeon responsible for the original implantation. If it proves impossible to contact the surgeon who did the original operation, another surgeon may be chosen in agreement with SILIMED.
