According to recent statistics released by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), breast enhancement surgery is the most popular form of cosmetic surgery in the United States. Each year, approximately 300,000 women throughout the country undergo breast augmentation surgery. Unfortunately, certain breast implants and tissue expanders manufactured by Allergan pose serious health and safety risks. On July 24, 2019, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) asked Allergan to voluntarily recall their BIOCELL textured breast implants. Allergan’s implants and tissue expanders were recalled due to their strong correlation with breast implant-associated anaplastic large-cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL). The FDA approximates that hundreds of thousands of women have received Allergan’s implants.
Some breast cancer victims have begun filing claims against Allergan, other breast implant manufacturers, and distributors to hold them liable for the dangers their recalled implants pose. It is alleged that Allergan had knowledge of the hazards that their texturized implants exposed trusting patients to yet chose to recklessly disregard their health and safety in pursuit of higher profits. If you, or a loved one, have been diagnosed with cancer or worse after getting implants, although no amount of money can erase your pain and suffering, you may have the right to file a lawsuit. The idea of costly litigation can help compel Allergan and other responsible parties to accept responsibility for their negligence and guarantee that justice is served.

Breast implants can cause many different illnesses and other health-related problems. Even when implants are not damaged or defective, they can still cause irritation, pain, and infection. When an implant ruptures, more serious complications can arise. The FDA’s request for Allergan to voluntarily recall its BIOCELL textured implants can be attributable to various health complications and risks, mainly BIA-ALCL. Symptoms of breast implant-associated anaplastic large-cell lymphoma include:
- Hardening of breasts;
- Enlargement of breasts;
- Changes in the shape of breasts;
- Lumps in the armpit or breast;
- Extreme fatigue;
- Swelling and pain;
- Unplanned weight loss; and
- Rashes or redness around the breast.

It is a good idea to maintain records of your implant model name and manufacturer. If you would like to obtain this information, consider asking your doctor or requesting your surgery records. Although breast implant-associated anaplastic large lymphoma affects women who have received breast implants, particularly textured types, the disease is not considered breast cancer. BIA-ALCL is an extremely rare cancer, usually found in the scar tissue and fluid around the implant, that attacks the immune system. It is typically a slower-moving form of cancer, but it can spread throughout the body if it goes undetected. Symptoms often do not occur right away and can take several years after receiving implants to manifest. The average amount of time it takes for symptoms to appear is eight years. It is important to know the symptoms of BIA-ALCL and routinely check the area around your breasts for any changes. Doctors recommend that women perform monthly self-exams to inspect for lumps and other cancer-related symptoms. It is vital to have any implant-related issues thoroughly evaluated by a board-certified plastic surgeon.
If you have experienced any of the above BIA-ALCL symptoms, it may be necessary to have your breast implants and scar tissue surgically removed. Currently, the FDA does not recommend removing Allergan breast implants unless you are undergoing symptoms. Allergan’s textured breast implants account for roughly a 600 percent increased risk of BIA-ALCL. In unfortunate cases where the victim’s cancer spreads to the lymph nodes and other parts of the body, it can be deadly. According to the FDA, there have been 733 confirmed BIA-ALCL cases worldwide and 36 known fatalities.
