Breastfeeding with a gel implant of Polypropylene Acylamic Liquid Gel
Dear Mr Hale,
I am emailing you in regards to a client I am seeing who had Breast Augmentation in China in 2002, with an injection of polypropylene acylamic liquid gel.
Shuang had this removed 2 years ago via surgery but the doctor said he was only able to take 95% of the gel out.
The question is , can Shuang breast feed with the remaining 5 % in, as she has been told that the product is banned in Australia and recently been banned in China. Shuang had the operation in China.
I wasn’t able to find any information out in your current book, and unable to find out much when I tried to google this.
Are you able to give us more information on this and get back to us as soon as you can.
Shuang is due to have her baby on July 7th, pregnancy going well at the moment.
