FIRMS acting for claimants against the makers of silicone gel breast implants have hit back at plastic surgeons who accused them of initiating unnecessary litigation.
The consultant behind a study which failed to prove any link between the implants and increased risk of cancer, said matters had been "all blown up out of proportion by some US women and lawyers".
