The Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) has developed a Breast Implant Registry on behalf of the Department of Health.

The registry is designed to capture all breast implant surgery carried out both privately and by the NHS, and is being produced in response to Recommendation 21 of the Keogh Review of the Regulation of Cosmetic Interventions.

The HSCIC has distributed information on this project for all providers of breast implant surgery. The implant registry was launched in October 2016.

Anyone having breast implanted (put in) or explanted (taken out) will have their information uploaded to the NHS digital website. You can opt out of this service, but you should discuss it with your surgeon and hospital provider.
