The PIP Debate — Cosmetic News

With the PIP controversy dominating the headlines we gauge the industry's opinion on the fallout from the scandal.

In recent weeks the cosmetic surgery and aesthetics industry has been hitting the headlines for all the wrong reasons as the PIP scandal has unfolded in the national media. 

While the story is nothing new for the industry, having been reported on ever since the MHRA issued a Medical Device Alert to breast implant surgeons and healthcare professionals back in April 2010, the heightened media coverage at the beginning of this year has caused wide spread panic about the safety of cosmetic surgery that has extended to discussions about non-surgical cosmetic injectables and the regulation of the industry as a whole.
