On July 24, 2019 the FDA recommended that Allergan recall their Natrelle Biocell Textured Breast Implants to protect individuals from the increased risk of breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL). The FDA based its findings on 573 worldwide cases of BIA-ALCL, with 481 reported to have Allergan breast implants at the time of diagnosis.
Attorneys at the Law Offices of Scott D. Hughes are actively investigating claims related to the Allergan Natrelle Biocell Textured Breast Implants.

What is BIA-ALCL?
BIA-ALCL is a cancer of the immune system. In many cases, BIA-ALCL is found near the breast implant, in the scar tissue, and surrounding fluid. However, it has also been found to spread throughout the body. BIA-ALCL has been treated successfully with surgery to remove the implant and the scar tissue surrounding the implant. Unfortunately, some patients may require treatment with chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy.
What are the Symptoms of BIA-ALCL?
Symptoms of BIA-ALCL include primarily persistent swelling or pain near the breast implant. Please speak to your healthcare provider regarding any questions you may have.
