Excerpt:The 2009 China-Korea Cosmetic Surgery Seminar was held in Qingdao, Shandong Province during 10th April to 12th.

The 2009 China-Korea Cosmetic Surgery Seminar was held in Qingdao, Shandong Province during 10th April to 12th. The seminar invited prestigious cosmetic doctors from China and Korea to give special lectures on eye, nose and breast surgery and demonstrated the latest medical development in both countries.

The director of our department Prof. Li Dong attended this meeting as a VIP. His lectures were welcomed and received great response.

The Plastic Surgery Department of Peking University Third Hospital (PUTH) is proud of its history. Found in 1949 when the new People’s Republic of China just established, it is the earliest of its kind. Prof. Zhu Hong-yin, Prof. Wang Da-mei and Prof. Kong Fan-hu were the founders of China’s plastic surgery, who have made great contributions for its establishment and development. With their guidance and efforts, our department enjoys high reputations and far-flung influence among home and abroad peers.

When he finished lecture, though facing with lots of pressing affairs, Prof. Li Dong visited the extrusion resistance test of American Mentor breast implant.

1. A Mentor breast implant kept unbroken after being pressed by a car weighting 1.5 ton.

The first part of this test was to let a car weighting 1.5 ton run over a breast implant repeatedly and stay over it for one minute. The breast implant was the same shape (unbroken, restoring to the original shape quickly)

2. Cut off the breast implant with a knife and silicone gel in the implant didn’t flow or spill out.

The second part of this test was to invite an audience to cut off the breast implant with a knife. Silicone gel in the implant did not flow or spill out.

The success of this test once again proves the extension, tolerance and safety of the breast implant adopted by our department.

Ever since a long time ago, our department has observed the idea of Safety First and Patients First. So we always choose the imported international-standard consumptive materials for operation, nursing and recovery, providing the maximum safety for our clients.

General Knowledge about Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery

Breast prosthesis, also called breast implant, has an elastic outer covering made of silica gel. There are two primary types of breast implants: saline-filled and silicone-gel-filled implants. Saline implants have a silicone elastomer shell filled with sterile saline liquid. Silicone gel implants have a silicone shell filled with a viscous silicone gel. There have been several alternative types of breast implants that were developed, such as polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP), hydrogel or soy oil, but these are still under clinical test.
