BII – Breast Implant Illness

November 28th, 2018 by alan

You may have heard some of the recent media coverage of Breast Implant-Associated Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma (BIA-ALCL).  Patients are reading the stories and getting alarmed and stressed out. We understand the fear and confusion.

Dr. Kara is here as a resource to educate and help his patients and any patients out there impacted by ALCL that are looking for a new doctor.

Now, let’s set the record straight and give you some answers to your questions.

ALCL is very rare and only occurs with textured surface implants, known as Biocell. Please be assured that ALCL has never occurred with smooth implants. It is still very safe to get implants.

For existing patients, Dr. Kara works almost exclusively with smooth implants, NOT Biocell.

Remember, we are here as a resource and will see, help and advise anyone with questions or concerns.

If you believe you may have Biocell textured surface implants, please schedule a consultation with us to discuss your options and ensure your safety.
