RIO DE JANEIRO, Jan. 13 (Xinhua) -- The Brazilian government said Friday that public and private healthcare systems will cover the costs of removal or replacement of faulty PIP and Rofil breast implants.
Health Minister Alexandre Padilha told reporters that there is no need for all patients who received PIP and Rofil breast implants to undergo the replacement surgery. Only those with ruptured implants will need to have them replaced.
"Women should head to the healthcare services to make an evaluation and find out if they need to undergo surgery," he said.
