July 15th, 2005 | researchmaterial

Armed bandits in Brazil robbed a vehicle carrying more than 400 breast implants, officials said on Tuesday.

Each Silimed breast implant costs nearly $400.

…demand is the highest in July, during the southern hemisphere winter, as women schedule surgery during the winter school holidays, which precede the beach season.

…the implants, each bearing an individual number, could now only be sold for clandestine surgeries. Horrific stories abound in Brazil about the illegal operations that can cause gangrene and death.
