The Risk Behind Allergan® Breast Implants

    • Studies have shown an increased risk of cancer, specifically BIA-ALCL, linked to Allergan's® now-recalled BIOCELL® textured breast implants and tissue expanders.
    • Hundreds of women have been affected by these recalled implants - some even developing breast implant cancer. Lawsuits are mounting against Allergan® and other potentially responsible parties.
    • The FDA and the World Health Organization (WHO) have distinguished BIA-ALCL as a type of cancer that can develop after breast implant surgery.
    • Approximately 36% (12 out of 33) of cases involving BIA-ALCL-related deaths have been attributed to the product manufacturer Allergan®. Research from the FDA indicates that Allergan® textured implants are the culprit, and smooth (non-textured) implants have not been linked to this cancer.
    • According to recent lawsuits, plaintiffs are claiming that the company knew of the risks of their textured implants long before they recalled select products in 2019.
    • The company began selling implants in 2006 and issued several long-term tests to assess their safety and performance. However, plaintiffs claim that Allergan® did not report safety concerns to the FDA through proper channels.

Allergen® in the news

In 2011, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) first reported a potential connection between breast implants and cancer of the lymphatic system.

Since then, hundreds of women have been diagnosed with breast implant-associated anaplastic large-cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL) - and some of these cases have been fatal.

October 2019

Two Florida women file a lawsuit against Allergan®. The Allergan® breast implant lawyers involved in the case are requesting that the company compensate the women for the costs associated with surgically removing and replacing their textured implants.

September 2019

An Illinois woman files a proposed class-action lawsuit against Allergan®, claiming the company knew about the link between its textured implants and cancer long before the implants were recalled.

July 24, 2019

Upon request from the FDA, Allergan® announces a worldwide recall of BIOCELL® textured breast implants and tissue expanders.

July 6, 2019

The FDA receives a total of 573 reports of BIA-ALCL to date. 481 of these cases have been attributed to Allergan® breast implants.

If you had breast implant surgery and the implants that were used have since been recalled, you may be eligible for financial compensation through an Allergan® breast implant lawsuit
