Possible implant exchange due to the FDA recall on textured implants

Hi ladies! I’m wondering if anyone in this community has textured anatomical implants, and if so, are you considering an implant exchange. I am one year post op and feeling great, but I am concerned about the link to BIA-ALCL. I am strongly considering an implant example next summer. Any one having the same thoughts or concerns about their textured implants?

  • I have textured teardrops and am happy with them. I knew there was some concern linked to cancer but not enough to worry me-seems everything links to cancer in the end nowadays. As long as I don’t have any issues and my doctor doesn’t have concerns I plan on keeping them :)

  • I have textured round implants and my surgeon prefers them. She said as long as I get checked by her annually and let her know of any changes that there is no reason to remove and replace!

  • I think Allergan was offering replacement implants if you exchange within their two year window.  In case that makes a difference. Your PS should know.
