I don't have PIPS Senora, but I have followed all articles regarding them so hopefully I can help a little until some with with PIPS can come along and give you 'actual experience'

If you approach your GP complaining of symptoms into regard to you PIP implants they have a duty of care to further investigate for you, so the first step is an ultrasound scan.

This may, or may not detect ruptures. If it doesn't detect a rupture but you still get the symptoms you have a right to request an MRI which WILL detect any ruptures on the implant.

They will then advise you if they're ruptured that the NHS will remove them if this is your choice. But they will not replace babe.

They will also advise that if you want a replacement you should see a private qualified plastic surgeon surgeon and have the surgery done by them.

After the latest research came back from Sweden, it has now been advised ruptured or not ALL women with PIPS should have them removed ASAP you can read the report if you'd like to HERE

I had PIP's. I had a private MRI.. pretty sure the NHS doesn't hand out MRI's free of charge just because you've got PIP's. Mine were not ruptured but I still wanted them replaced. I live in Wales so had the option of a free removal and replacement, but the waiting list was huge (especially for non-ruptured), so I went private and chose my own surgeon etc x

Yup, the NHS will provide and MRI yes 


The current consensus is that MRI is more sensitive than ultrasound in detecting ruptures of breast implants. This means it is less likely than ultrasound to produce a 'false negative' result (i.e. suggesting that the implant hasn't ruptured when it actually has).
However, MRI is much more expensive than ultrasound and waiting times for an MRI scan are likely to be longer.
Therefore if you and your doctor feel a scan is necessary to help determine whether your implant needs removing, the Royal College of Radiologists recommend having an ultrasound first, and:

  • if the ultrasound is negative and you are still concerned, proceed to MRI
  • if the ultrasound is positive (detects a rupture), this should be a sufficient basis for the clinical decision to remove the implant
