Allergan breast implants have been recalled. The FDA removed them from the US market and the company voluntarily removed them from the worldwide market for the safety of their customers.
This implant seems to have caused lymphoma in 481 people. If anyone has had adverse effects from these breast implants they can alert the “Centro Nacional de Televigilancia” in the Ministry of Health in San José.
The Food and Drug Administration put out an alert since a global report determined that 481 of the 573 patients with large cell anaplastic lymphoma had the Biocell breast implants at the time of diagnosis.
Those who already have the implants should have regular check-ups and inform the staff of the implants so the exam is done correctly. The risk is considered low so it may not be necessary to remove the implants.
