7/2019 Important Recall Information

On July 24, 2019 Allergan Corporation voluntarily recalled all textured silicone gel implants due to the increasing evidence that this particular implant made by Allergan is associated with a rare form of cancer called Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma. This is not breast cancer but cancer of the immune system that occurs in the breast implant pocket.  Textured implants are ones that have a Velcro like surface rather than a smooth surface.  The symptoms of Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma is unexplained swelling of the breast that occurs for no particular reason. There is sometimes a rash on the breast as well.  The FDA recommends that if you have this implant and you are not having symptoms that you do not need to remove the implants. However, Dr. Barber recommends you see the plastic surgeon who placed the implants for advice on what should be done with respect to surveillance.  Dr. Barber has utilized very few Allergan implant products throughout his career and has few, if any, patients with the implants in question. Dr. Barber primarily uses Mentor, Sientra and Ideal implants and most are smooth, not textured, implants.  If you’re an established patient of the Barber Center and uncertain which type of implant you have, please refer to the implant card you were given at your post-op visit or contact our office.
