TOWIE's Lauren Pope Looks to MYA Cosmetic Surgery to Replace Her PIP Breast Implants

LEEDS, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Feb. 9, 2012) - Last month The Only Way is Essex star Lauren Pope confirmed that she is one of the 40,000 women in the UK who have received the implants by French company Poly Implant Prostheses (PIP), which following legal proceedings, has now been shut down.

The 29 year old DJ and reality TV star chose to visit one of the UK's leading cosmetic surgery providers MYA Cosmetic Surgery to research having her PIP implants removed and replaced. This is not the first time Lauren has visited MYA. In June last year she had a Rhinoplasty, commonly known as a nose job, with MYA to remove the bump at the top of her nose. Pleased with the results, Lauren tweeted "Hey guys! Just to let u know it is true I did get a nose job the other day by @MYA_Tweet and I am over the moon with the outcome!"

The filming took place last week at one of MYA's London clinics where TOWIE's Chloe Sims joined Lauren during her consultation with cosmetic surgeon Mario Russo. Lauren discussed with the surgeon that as well as wanting her PIP implants removed she wanted to change the shape and size of her breasts. "The benefit of having them removed is that I can change what I currently don't like about my first boob job."

Lauren Pope is not the only TOWIE cast member to have visited MYA Cosmetic Surgery. Stars of the reality TV show Lauren Goodger and Kirk Norcross have both had nose surgery with MYA, whilst Lauren's sister, Nicola Goodger who also stars in the show, had a Breast Enlargement. The stars are also huge fans of MYA's Advanced Beauty Treatments and ex TOWIE cast member, Maria Fowler is a regular at the MYA clinic in London.

The reality TV show, which first aired in October 2010, may have contributed to the boom in cosmetic surgery enquiries that have been made in Essex this year. In January 2012 MYA Cosmetic Surgery saw a 150% increase in enquiries from the Essex region compared to January 2011.

The most popular procedures people in Essex are enquiring about are:

  • Breast Surgery which makes up 66% of all enquiries
  • Nose Reshaping which makes up 10% of all enquiries
  • Liposuction which makes up 10% of all enquiries.

The remainder of enquiries made also included various Non-Surgical treatments as well as Buttock Implants.

MYA PIP Statement

MYA Cosmetic Surgery launched in the UK in June 2007. Since 2007 our principal implant provider has been the American company Allergan who have an excellent clinical record. On rare occasions we have used other implant providers but this has been in less than 1% of the surgical procedures that we have carried out. We only ever used a very small number of PIP implants and so our data is not statistically meaningful. We last used the implants in 2009.

We take patient care very seriously and if any of our patients have any concerns then we will continue to quickly offer them the support and reassurance that they need.

If a MYA patient has a ruptured PIP implant or they are distressed by the presence of a PIP implant then we will remove and replace the implants free of charge.
