Breast Implant Removal Newport Beach CA
Hi. This is Dr. Kelishadi from SSK plastic surgery. I want to speak to you all today about the textured breast implants from Allergan that were recently recalled. It is not really a recall. It's a discontinuation because they have been linked the greatest with causing a rare disease called Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma. For those of you that have the implant, you don't have to worry, we don't have to remove the implant. You can just follow up with your board certified plastic surgeon yearly and you should be fine. Now, if you get a new lump or swelling or pain or something out of the ordinary, you should be seen right away. But for those of you that can't sleep well at night because you're worried that your implants will make you ill and so forth, please come see us to go over your options.
In fact, Allergan has offered to replace your textured implants with smooth implants for free. They'll give you a smooth implants for free, but you still have to pay for surgery and anesthesia and facility fee. Okay. For those of you that have been thinking about maybe getting your implants removed, we have lots of options. We can remove your implants and just leave it as is or remove implants and do a lift or remove implants and maybe suck out some fat and fill up the space. Okay. Give us a call.
