Bionic Breasts?

We all remember the famous TV hit of manyyears ago, called "The Bionic Man".

We have bionic hips and knees, and may soon have "Bionic Breasts."

A company in Hackney, South Australia is undertaking studies for the new TriBrege titanium coated breast implants (Poly Implants Prothesis or PIP).

Titanium is naturally present in human tissue and is very inert biologically. It is not toxic and induces no inflammatory reaction. This may hold promise to help prevent the unwanted contracture that can occur with normal breast implants.

It currently is undergoing clinical trials. More to come.

Pay a visit to Dr. Brueck's web site for more information about all things plastic surgery and cosmetic surgery.
