Allergan Textured Breast Implant Recall

Friday, August 2nd, 2019

Allergan recently issued a recall on all their textured breast implants. This was in response to concerns by the FDA and health organizations around the world about the association between Allergan textured breast implants and a rare form of cancer, ALCL.

Allergan Logo - Breast Implant RecallAt Burgess Plastic Surgery, Dr. Burgess has placed thousands of breast implants, most being round, smooth-shelled implants. In some cases, we have placed shaped textured-shell implants, but those devices have been either Mentor or Sientra devices.

Mentor and Sientra textured implants are not subject to the FDA recall because they carry an extremely low risk of being associated with ALCL. Our patient’s health and safety are our foremost concern. We will continue to closely monitor the scientific data and FDA guidance on all breast implants and any possible risks associated with breast augmentation surgery. Our patients with textured-shaped implants should be reassured that their risk of ALCL is extremely low and that no additional treatment is recommended. (more…)

Occasionally we have Breast and Body Events where we highlight two of our most common breast surgeries, breast augmentation and breast lift (mastopexy). These can often can be done in conjunction with one another, if you are a good candidate.

If you have thought about having breast augmentation or breast lift, we are sure that there are a lot of questions going through your mind.
