Recently, there has been much media coverage of breast implants and possible safety concerns. Our aim is always to ensure our patients are fully informed about every aspect of their procedure and so we have created our Breast Implant Info hub to provide as much information as we can.

Furthermore, Mr Karidis and his team at the Karidis Clinic are always on hand if you have more questions, so please do not hesitate to get in touch.
