Breast implants have been the most popular cosmetic medical procedure since at least 2006 according to most studies that are done by the public health departments of both the U.S. and Canada. This isn’t especially surprising, and breast augmentation has been a widely available procedure for many decades at this point. That does make it surprising whenever news comes up that a particular type of breast implant is shown to cause severe health issues.
The Issue at Hand
While textured implants have been heavily marketed and become a popular choice with many women, the textured implants released by Allergan have fallen under heavy criticism from a variety of sources. Canada’s CBC reports 106 cases and climbing of a special type of large cell lymphoma specifically from implants that were linked to these as well as the World Health Organization (WHO) classifying BIA-ALCL as its own cancer. This cemented the link between certain types of implants creating a dangerous new cancer.
Textured implants were pulled from the European markets in December of 2018 while the FDA flagged these implants saying their studies showed that individuals who chose to have these textured implants were showing up to 600% higher risk of BIA-ALCL cancer than those who chose a different style of implant.
Worldwide as of July 2019, there were 573 confirmed cases of this rare breast augmentation related cancer with 33 deaths. The general belief is that this may only scratch the surface of what is actually out there.
If you or someone you love has textured implants they need to look at getting them checked on or replaced. In addition, anyone showing consistent signs of severe muscle pain, joint pain, weakness, mental fog, and extreme fatigue need to look at having them removed immediately as these can all be signs of “breast implant illness” or something even worse.
Companies are responsible for making their products as safe as possible and anyone who has had sickness, injury, or even BIA-ALCL due to textured breast implants from Allergen should get treated and seek out legal representation. You should not be held financially responsible for a company’s defective or dangerous product!
