Re "Death Follows Breast Implant" article (March 22): I was shocked to read your article regarding the tragic death of Martha McClellan. I am amazed at the sensationalism and feel compelled to respond. It is appalling how your paper could tolerate and assent to the inclusion of the innuendoes, accusations and comparisons regarding myself and my staff that appeared in the article even before any actual tests with their results, investigations or reviews have taken place. Also, does not the family have enough grief than to have it detailed to the public and then inaccurately?

On the way to the operation, she joked about it, teasing about the figure she was going to have when it was done, said her sister Erin Magner, who drove McClellan to the doctor's office in Newport Beach. McClellan had been planning the surgery for six months, family members said; after bearing two children, the 35-year-old Laguna Beach homemaker was looking forward to regaining a more youthful-looking bust line.

"Hoping to meet guys," two 23-year-olds--call them Sue and Gail--were driving to Palm Springs for a mini-vacation. "We were laughing about men and what they liked," Sue recalls, "and in the process I made a couple of 'flat' jokes about my breasts or the lack thereof." Suddenly the conversation turned serious and Gail said: "You can fix that if you want to, you know--I did." Sue surveyed Gail's breasts and was impressed: "They were wonderful--and just what I wanted!
