Breast implants are used in both breast augmentation surgery (to increase the breast size) and in breast reconstruction (to replace breast tissue that has been removed due to cancer or trauma or that has failed to develop properly due to a severe breast abnormality). Breast implants may also be used in revision surgery to correct or improve the result of a primary breast implant surgery. Tissue expanders are used in breast reconstruction following mastectomy, treatment of underdeveloped breasts, and treatment of soft tissue deformities. The expander is intended for temporary (less than six months implantation under the skin (subcutaneous) or under the muscle (submuscular).

FDA requested recall

The FDA requested that Allergan recall all BIOCELL textured breast implants and tissue expanders marketed in the U.S. due to risk of breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL), a cancer of the immune system. Based on the currently available information, the FDA’s analysis demonstrated that the risk of BIA-ALCL with Allergan BIOCELL textured implants is approximately 6 times the risk of BIA-ALCL with textured implants from other manufacturers marketing in the U.S. and continued distribution of Allergan’s BIOCELL textured breast implants would likely cause serious, adverse health consequences, including death, from BIA-ALCL.

Hip Implant Lawsuit

We help people win against insurance companies, big businesses and private entities.

It’s been heavily documented that over the past decade or so that most of these manufacturers received a fast track design approval from the government to manufacture and distribute metal on metal hip implants to medical facilities across the U.S. without traditional testing being done due to a gap in the regulations. At the time, no one had thought that there would be so many complications that arose from metal on metal hip implants and unfortunately hundreds of thousands of Americans are having to deal with these decisions.
