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…)

Burgess, Laser Genesis - ImageNow a fashion and beauty maven, it is hard to imagine a time when Kendall Jenner did not exude confidence. However, Kendall recently shared that, like many of us, she struggled with teenage acne. She remembers, “It completely ruined my self-esteem.” Continuing, of her acne, Kendall says, “it really impacted me.”

Kendall decided to take action. Advice from her sisters proved wise—she says, “My older sisters always told me to keep my hands off my face and to never pick.” Kendall also sought out professional guidance. She now credits her clear and glowing complexion to Laser Genesis. Like Kendall, we at Burgess Plastic Surgery are firm believers in the power of Laser Genesis’s skin-clearing ways. (more…)
