Allergan Recalls Textured Breast Implants Linked to BIA-ALCL Cancer

Home Blog Allergan Recalls Textured Breast Implants Linked to BIA-ALCL Cancer

Allergan recently released a recall of their textured breast implants worldwide. Textured breast implants have come under recent scrutiny by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) due to the link between these implants and a significant increase in the number of BIA-ALCL cancer cases and deaths. 

Many news stories have been circulating about textured breast implants and their link to cancer. The Today Show recently hosted a segment on what exactly you need to know. Read and watch the full story from The Today Show

As a post-mastectomy boutique owner, be aware of the issues that texturized breast implants may cause. Keep in mind that the implant was created to fix another problem and help the implant to stay in place.

Boutique owners are in a unique situation as people who have texturized implants may want them removed and may also look for an alternative to additional reconstructive surgery. Custom or off-the-shelf breast prostheses are great alternatives.

    We are seeing a high number of infections and women losing implants. I’m not sure if this is the cause.
