Breast Implant Associated Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma (BIA-ALCL)

In preparation for augmentation or reconstruction with implants, it is important to understand the implant options available. Implants vary in their shell, fill material, and shape. Each implant has pros and cons. Although there is not a “perfect” implant, it is our goal to find the implant that most satisfies your preferences. This resource reviews the different implant options so that you can make an informed decision regarding the implant that is right for you.

NSPS is dedicated to making sure our patients feel informed about their options in regards to implants and how they may contribute to their health.  We continue to follow updates on Breast Implant Associated Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma (BIA-ALCL).  For additional information, follow the links below.
