Biocell Implants Recall

One of the largest manufacturers of breast implants has recalled one variety of their breast implant because of a higher than average link to a rare form of lymphoma called ALCL.

Allergan, Inc. issued a worldwide recall of their textured (Biocell) implants and is asking that physicians and hospitals no longer stock or use the item. The move comes after the FDA found a higher than average link to ALCL from this one manufacturer's textured implant.

Other companies also make textured implants using different processes, and so far no other products have been named. 

ALCL is a rare cancer that when detected early can be treated successfully, but there have been cases of fatalities which is the reason for the FDA investigation.

If you are unsure of your implant type, you should contact your surgeon and obtain the implant data card or a copy. Even if you DO have the recalled implants, surgery is NOT recommended if you have a normal exam, and possibly undergo some simple testing.

Dr LoMonaco has over 20 years experience treating breast-implant related complications. If you desire a consultation to learn more about your options, feel free to call our office at 713-526-5550.
