Consumers and health professionals are advised that Allergan has elected to recall all of their un-implanted macro-textured breast implants and tissue expanders due to the risk of breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL) in rare cases.
Micro textured and smooth breast implants are not affected by this hazard alert and sponsor initiated recall.
The TGA has been advised that removal or replacement of macro-textured breast implants or tissue expanders in asymptomatic patients is not recommended.
