Abstract

Public interest in silicone breast implants has heightened in recent months due to increased media hype that has included unscientific reviews and exaggerated accounts of a few women's problems. Lynne McCain, BSN, RN, of Emory Clinic's Section of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery in Atlanta, provides common questions asked by patients with breast implants followed by appropriate responses that could be given in counseling.
