FOR STORY BRITAIN COSMETIC SURGERY - FILE - In this Wednesday, Dec. 21, 2011, file photo Dr. Maurice Mimoun, a plastic surgeon at the St Louis hospital in Paris holds a silicone gel breast implant made by French company Poly Implant Prothese, or PIP, that he removed from a patient because of concerns that they are unsafe. An independent expert group released a report Wednesday April 24, 2013, which slammed Britain’s cosmetic surgery industry for not protecting patients adequately and is calling for stricter controls in the aftermath of a breast implant scandal in Europe last year that left tens of thousands of women with cheap silicone implants prone to ruptures. The expert group, commissioned by the U.K. Department of Health, also called for the creation of a registry of implants and other medical devices. (AP Photo/Michel Euler, File) less
