Allergan and Mentor are pharmaceutical companies that manufacture breast implants. In July of 2019, the FDA asked Allergan to voluntarily withdraw all Allergan Biocell implants, a type of textured implant. The Biocell implant has been associated with the majority of BIA-ALCL cases.
For the majority of breast cases, Dr. Maffi uses Allergan’s smooth, round implants, not textured. Breast implant information including the type of implant is documented on an Implant ID Card, given to each patient following breast surgery. If you are unable to locate your Implant ID card, contact our office and we can assist you.
If you have noticed changes in your breast shape or size, please contact our office to schedule an appointment with Dr. Maffi. If you are a former patient of Dr. Friedland or Dr. Johnson and have questions regarding breast implants, contact our office at 480.505.6430.
