For patients who have had Allergan breast implants inserted the following is an excerpt from their recent advice bulletin.
We are aware Allergan have stopped selling textured breast implants and tissue expanders and intend to withdraw remaining supply in European markets.
There is currently no evidence of an increased risk to patients and there is no need for people who have Allergan breast implants to get them removed or have any additional clinical follow-up.
We are monitoring the situation closely and will provide updates as necessary.
If you have any questions about your implants, please speak to your implanting surgeon or clinic.
