They’re Baaaack!

No, not poltergeists, something much better:

 Implants The Food and drug Administration has decided to reverse the 1992 ruling and lift the 14-year ban on the use of silicone breast implants in the United states. Two California-based companies, Mentor and Allergan, have been approved to manufacture and sell what experts say is a newly designed and safer silicone implant.

Dr. Daniel G. Schultz, director of the F.D.A.?s Center for Devices and Radiological Health, said that the F.D.A.?s review of company-sponsored studies on silicone implants, as well as long-term use of the implants around the world, was enough to approve the use of the implants in the best interest of American women. Dr. Schultz cautioned however, that no device is completely foolproof and some implants may need to be replaced eventually due to leaks or ruptures.

?Women should know that breast implants are not lifetime devices,? he told reporters over the phone last night. ?Women having these procedures done need to be prepared for the fact that there is a likelihood they will require additional surgery,? he added.

So as you celebrate Thanksgiving in a few days, there’s one more thing to be thankful for.
