A defective silicone gel breast implant manufactured by French company Poly Implant Prothese (PIP) is seen near surgical instruments after being removed from a patient by plastic surgeon Denis Boucq (L) in a clinic in Nice December 21, 2011. In the nearly two years since French police raided a factory run by French entrepreneur Jean-Claude Mas, the cheap silicone used in his company's fake breasts has continued to leach into women's bodies. In France 1,262 of the roughly 300,000 breast implants the company sold worldwide have split open. PIP has been closed down, Mas has been arrested and put under investigation for alleged bodily harm, and French and European safety regulators have been thrust into an uncomfortable spotlight.
