The purpose of this guide is to support general practitioners in the assessment and management of patients with breast implants.
This guide has been designed to supplement existing clinical guidelines, such as the Cancer Australia The investigation of a new breast symptom – a guide for General Practitioners. It summarises important information relevant to general practitioners caring for patients with breast implants.
Recommendations outlined in this guide are based on best practice, expert consensus and available evidence at the time of publishing. This guide has been developed in collaboration with representatives of NSW RACGP and clinical specialists in the fields of plastic, reconstructive and breast surgery.
