Welcome to the Breast Implant Information Project, a website sponsored by the National Center for Health Research. The National Center for Health Research is a not-for-profit organization that provides you with health information that can improve the lives of you and your family, and gives a voice to people and ideas that would otherwise not be heard. For example, women who consider breast implants for either augmentation or reconstruction after mastectomy tell us that we provided unbiased information that they could not find anywhere else. Think of us as a voice you can trust that provides information you can use.
Throughout our country, there are products, programs, and policies that have the potential to save lives and improve the quality of life for many of us. There are also products that have risks that are not adequately explained in TV commercials, advertisements, or in conversations with most health professionals. We use objective, research-based information that consumers and patients can use to help them make decisions. This information can help you know what questions to ask when talking to your doctor. Or in the case of cosmetic procedures, it can help you decide on your own.
