ABSTRACT
The return of silicone breast implants, and their contentious malpractice history, raises questions about potential liability. One expert says some caution is needed, but the risk is low. • There is substantially more clinical data now to prove the safety of silicone implants. • Nuisance lawsuits still are possible, and the hospital or surgery center probably would be included. • Patients should be educated during the informed consent process about the history of silicone implants.
