Breast implants: evidence and safety reviews

In our commitment to openness and transparency, we publish summaries of our safety reviews on medical devices like breast implants. These summaries complement other safety-related information to help Canadians make informed decisions.

The summaries outline what was assessed, what was found and what actions, if any, were taken by Health Canada.
