More often these days it seems like we are constantly being reminded that our assurance of protection from product failure is about to expire. This is no different than with medical devices. Recently the major breast implant manufacturers are offering enhanced warranties for their products. This upgrade is only available this year, however, time is running out to take advantage of the offer.
If a patient schedules a breast augmentation on or before December 31st they can qualify for the enhanced breast implant warranty. This warranty provides a $3500 in financial reimbursement in the event of an implant rupture or failure. Even if your implant fails ten years down the road, the manufacturer will help pay to cover the medical costs to fix the problem.
While these reimbursements warranties have always been in affect the potential for out of pocket expense for the patient can be expensive.
Those considering breast augmentation surgery may want to schedule their surgery now rather than later next year in order take advantage of this special offer. Implant failures are very rare, however, it’s a good way to have some extra assurance about the financial risks associated when an implant failure occurs.
