Financial incentives improved follow-up rates after breast implant surgery

June 28, 2017

A novel financial incentive strategy was associated with improved follow-up visit habits after breast implant surgery.

The study included 502 patients in a Core Study treated with Ideal Implant. For each participant, $3,500 was deposited into an independent, irrevocable trust and then invested. Participants were removed from the study if a follow-up visit was missed. They were compensated for completed visits to that date, but the remainder of her share would stay in the fund to be divided among the patients who completed all study protocols for the full 10 years.
