PIP Implants are Yours and Not Your Clinics

Article by
Kevin Timms
The Problem

An increasing number of our clients are being told by their clinics and surgeons that when their implants are removed and/or replaced that their PIP implants cannot be given back to them as their “PIP implants are medical waste”.

This practice is not acceptable and it is vital that any women who are having their PIP implants removed are given their implants back following surgery as those implants are evidence for any PIP implant claim that an individual may have.

Our Advice

Ensure you have written confirmation from your clinic and surgeon that your implants will be given back to you. If this is refused then contact Garden House Solicitors. We will write to your surgeon and clinic explaining the legal position – the PIP implants are your property and must be given back to you – if the clinic refuses to do so we can obtain an injunction from the High Court to stop the clinic disposing of the PIP implants as “medical waste” and to ensure that the PIP implants are given beck to you.

If you have PIP implants and are concerned please speak with Kevin Timms or Julie Retallick for further information on 01992 422 128 or email us at
