They think it's going to be less expensive for them (to travel abroad for breast implants) and the truth is very different
Tampa, Florida (PRWEB) April 19, 2012
Johana Rodriguez is one of the estimated 400,000 women to receive the now banned PIP implants reported to be at risk of having a high rupture risk. A Yahoo News publication on 17 April 2012 reported a study led by UK surgeons that 1 in 3 PIP implants may rupture and due to the uncertainty of the silicone gel used in the implant may cause the need to have these implants removed immediately.

According to Johana and her medical records, at the age of 18, Johana traveled to Columbia and received PIP breast implants for $3,000 dollars, to save almost 50% compared to receiving treatment from a United States Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. This decision proved costly as four years later Johana began to experience pain a couple weeks ago, along with a fever and swollen lymph nodes from the toxic silicone released in her body from the ruptured implants.
Dr. Bart Rademaker, the Tampa, Florida Board Certified Plastic Surgeon that treated Johana reported in a recent ABC News interview, "They think it's going to be less expensive for them and the truth is very different," Dr. Rademaker said, "Forty to fifty percent of people who go abroad end up with various types of problems that then cost them a lot more money."
