In 2010, The French Health Agency AFFSAPPS uncovers that the breast implants made by the company Poly Implant Prothèse (PIP), which has been certified and sold since 2001 in 65 countries (400 000 carriers) are filled with a fake silicone gel. The agency ordered their withdrawal from the market.

This event, which finds its origins in the eighties, marks the beginning of a long legal process of compensation for the victims throughout the world.

The scandal summed up in 40 dates in the last 25 years.
