Hi,

How did you find out the chemical list for implants. If Iasked Mentor do you think they would tell me? I can't understant that if a known carcinogen was among the ingredients in silicone why would these things be approved? If this is true about the carcinogen than I can see why they say women with implants have a higher risk for lung cancer. They also say that about brain cancer. My plastic surgeon says they are safe and they still used them in cancer patients when they were banned for everyone else. All this confuses me and I know deep down inside that I shouldn't get them but I still have to

I looked at the links that you provided. All this stuff refers to Dow Corning. Does Mentor and the other makers of silicone implants use the same ingredients as Dow did with the "old " silicone implants? I want to research these new companies as my PS claims that they are safe, cohesive and the Platnium levels are in a "zero oxidation state". Funny thing is that when I called 1-800-mentor8 all I get is transfered around. When you finally reach a live person they want to know what your questions are and the you are transfered again and then you get a recording saying to leave your name and number and they will call you back. We'll see. Ya if the new ones are just as bad then I don't want to deal with it.

Pretty bad that people have to do things like this just because they are greedy and have to make money at other peoples expense. Yah, I wonder if the chemical list will say what is REALLY in them.
