You may or may not have heard that Allergan has announced a voluntary global recall of textured breast implants. These textured implants have been linked to a rare type of cancer known as Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma (BIA-ALCL), a type of Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma.
The FDA has not recommended that women who already have the textured implants get them removed because the cancer is so rare, unless there are experiencing symptoms such as pain and swelling.
Most of our patients have smooth implants and therefore are not affected. If you have questions or concerns about your breast implants, please feel free to call our office.
