Important Safety Information : MENTOR® Memory Gel® Breast Implants are indicated for breast augmentation, in women who are at least 18 years old, or for breast reconstruction. Breast implant surgery should not be performed in those women with active infection anywhere in their body, those with existing cancer or pre-cancer of their breast(s), those who have not received adequate treatment for these conditions or those who are pregnant or nursing. There are risks associated with breast implant surgery. Breast implants are not lifetime devices and breast implantation is not necessarily a one-time surgery. The most common complications with MENTOR® Memory Gel® Breast Implants include re-operation, implant removal, capsular contracture, asymmetry, and breast pain. A lower risk of complication is implant rupture, which is most often silent. The health consequences of a ruptured silicone gel-filled breast implant have not been fully established. Screenings such as mammography, MRI, or ultrasound are recommended after initial implant surgery to assist in detecting implant rupture. Your patient needs to be informed and understand the risks and benefits of breast implants, and she should be provided with an opportunity to consult with you prior to deciding on surgery. For detailed indications, contraindications, warnings and precautions associated with the use of all MENTOR® Implantable Devices, please refer to the Product Insert Data Sheet provided with each product or review the Important Safety Information provided at www.mentorwwllc.eu. The most common complications for breast augmentation with Memory Gel® Implants include any reoperation, capsular contracture, nipple sensation changes, and implant removal with or without replacement. The most common complications with CPGTM Implants for breast augmentation include reoperation for any reason, implant removal with or without replacement, and ptosis. A lower risk of complication is rupture. The health consequences of a ruptured silicone gel breast implant have not been fully established. MRI screenings are recommended three years after initial implant
surgery and then every two years after to detect silent rupture. It is important that patients understand the risks associated with breast implant surgery when considering MENTOR® Breast Implants.

Society of Plastic Surgery of Azerbaijan
Bangladesh Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BSAPS) is formed by members who are all qualified plastic surgeons, interested in the practice of aesthetic plastic surgery. BSAPS is committed to the practice of safe aesthetic surgery - which can only be ensured by training qualified plastic surgeons, and also providing a safe environment where the surgeries should be performed. BSAPS have already started conducting meetings and aesthetic surgery workshops in the country. Topics like Fascia Scarpa Sparing Lipoabdominoplasty, Autoaugmentation Mastopexy and Rhinoplasty has been touched. Non surgical procedures like Botox, Lasers and Microneedling has also been included in the workshops. BSAPS has been officially registered in the Joint Stock Companies and Firms of Bangladesh in November 2019. In addition to 31 local members BSAPS has a number of overseas members as well. BSAPS fully endorse the view of ISAPS, that residents in plastic surgery should be allowed more exposure to aesthetic surgery during their residency period. For this reason we happy that plastic surgery residents can now become Resident Members for free. We have planned to publish BSAPS Journal twice a year, where our members will write articles in order to share their experiences in aesthetic surgery. The first issue is already published and the second and third issues will be out this year. During the ISAPS Symposium in Bruges, Belgium in October 2019, BSAPS signed an agreement and became an ISAPS Global Alliance member. With this alliance we will feel encouraged to uphold the global standards in the practice of safe aesthetic surgery in our country. In March 2020 ISAPS decided to conduct an educational Course in Dhaka. But due to Covid pandemic the program had to be postponed indefinitely. We are now looking forward to setting a new date for this event in Bangladesh. We are extremely happy to become an endorsing partner of ISAPS World Congress to be held in Istanbul this September 2022.

The goal of serving aesthetic plastic surgeons has always been the philosophy of ESAPS and we are reaching out to all trained plastic surgeons in Europe to provide them with information, training and education on the following core subjects: Patient Safety: This aspect should be the core of every plastic surgeons daily activity. Cross border surgery and the fact that non specialized doctors and other figures are carrying out delicate procedures, has brought around the need to have tight regulation regarding the safety of our patients. ESAPS is developing guidelines and documents that will be useful for your daily practice. Through our platform RPS REAL PLASTIC SURGEONS patients have the possibility to check the qualifications of their surgeons before deciding to undergo surgery. Education of European plastic surgeons: It is one of our goals to develop a forum with experts in different fields of aesthetic plastic surgery for ESAPS members to discuss adverse results and complications. Biennial meetings will be organized in the future and regular webinars are available throughout the year. Advocacy in all European Regulatory matters: Strength in numbers is very true. Comparing and sharing information and statistics is a focal point for ESAPS. We can speak on behalf of those countries that do not have a National Societies for aesthetic plastic surgeon and we join hands with all the National Societies to bring our speciality the opportunity to make the environment safer for our patients and accelerate the diffusion of important news regarding regulatory or certification matters.
