Canada permits silicone breast implants



Following our own FDA's similar decision. Related: per ABC News, some U.S. doctors report that patient demand is not shifting toward now-legal silicone-filled implants as rapidly as some had expected. A notable quote, from Dr. Darrick Antell, an official spokesperson for the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and a surgeon in private practice in NYC: "I think it will take time for people to embrace what science has told us. It just shows how people can be influenced by the media and hysterical lawyers."
