Breast Implant Notification: Macro-textured implant Recall
The FDA has placed a moratorium on macro-textured implants in the United States and Allergan has placed a recall on these implants.
For a very limited time, patients who have textured Allergan, McGhan or Inamed saline and silicone breast implants can receive free replacement smooth breast implants. Additional costs include surgery, anesthesia and facility.
Macro-textured breast implants have been linked to a number of cases of Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma (ALCL), which prompted the FDA to remove them from the market, but they have not gone so far as to recommend removal of these implants in asymptomatic patients.
If you have textured silicone breast implants and are concerned about ALCL or are considering a change in implant size, this may be your best opportunity to have breast implant surgery with reduced fees.
Mentor implants are considered micro-textured and have not been implicated in the development of ALCL.
