Oxon Hill, MD (PRWEB) April 17, 2012
Maryland plastic surgeon, Dr. Michael Chiaramonte of Bella Cosmetic Surgery, is now offering to match Mentor's Compassionate Care Program, which is designed to assist US patients with the removal of recently recalled Poly Implant Prothese (PIP) implants. Mentor's Compassionate Care program offers a $250 American Express gift card to patients who replace PIP implants with Mentor brand implants. For a revision of their PIP breast augmentation, Maryland women are now being offered an additional $250 discount from Bella Cosmetic Surgery for any patient who schedules surgery with Dr. Chiaramonte to replace their PIP implants with Mentor brand implants.
The PIP implants were recalled from the market due to the usage of substandard silicone gel. Through testing, the French regulatory authority determined that the implants had a higher than expected rate of rupture and leakage, which is likely to lead to tissue inflammation and irritation. The French government has responded by providing financial compensation to citizens for the removal of these defective implants. However, non-French citizens have been left to deal with the removal costs on their own.
As the only US breast implant manufacturer, Mentor created the Compassionate Care Program, aimed to offset some of the costs of removal and replacement If a patient replaces their PIP implants with Mentor-brand saline or gel implants, they will receive a $250 American Express gift card. The program is effective from January 1, 2012 to December 31, 2012.
Maryland plastic surgeon, Dr. Michael Chiaramonte, has announced a similar program. Bella Cosmetic Surgery will match the Mentor gift card offer with an additional $250 discount for any patient who schedules surgery to replace PIP implants with Mentor Saline or MemoryGel Implants. This brings the total discounted value to $500.
