PIP Breast implant update

David Oliver uses only the highest quality breast implants and therefore none of  his patients have been affected by the PIP implant situation.

Following stories in the media recently concerning a French manufacturer (“PIP”) of breast implants and a possible link to cancer, if women are concerned they should contact the surgeon who carried out their operation.

A recent patient experience:

“Upon finding out that I had PIP implants I decided that I wanted them removed as soon as possible.

By coincidence, Mr David Oliver from the Ramsay Health Care Group was coming to Guernsey so I made an appointment to see him, and after meeting him and his team I had no hesitation in booking my operation which was made very quickly from my initial meeting with them.

I flew from Guernsey to Exeter on Friday which is only a 30 minute flight away, so no long train journeys, I was met by a private car and driven to the Mount Stuart Hospital in Torquay where I was given premium care, and was looked after by all staff to a very high standard. I had an en-suite room which was very private and all nursing staff was kind and thoughtful.

 I had my operation on Saturday morning and then flew back to Guernsey on Sunday afternoon.

Having the back up of aftercare at the MSG group in Guernsey is very reassuring as most clinics in the UK do not have this.

I would not hesitate in recommending Mr Oliver and his staff for any cosmetic procedures and thank them all for their genuine and professional care at all times from the first meeting to the post op appointment.”
