Dr. Hamori recently addressed concerns over BIA-ALCL in this video." ALCL (Anaplastic large cell lymphoma) is a very rare disease, found in approximately one in 30,000 patients. So, while there is a lot of hype about it right now, and while I think it is important that women are aware of it, it is also creating a lot of panic for a disease that is quite uncommon.First of all, it affects only people who have textured implants — implants that have a little pebbling on the outside. The theory is that after seven or eight years contamination can occur, some over reactive immune response occurs, a fluid film for...
We present 4 cases of pathology-confirmed BIA-ALCL to illustrate varying presentations and imaging features of this disease process. Breast implant–associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma presents most commonly approximately 10 years after implantation of textured silicone or saline breast implants. Patients may present with breast enlargement, peri-implant effusion, a palpable breast or axillary mass, lymphadenopathy, breast skin erythema, or pain. Diagnosis of BIA-ALCL may be confirmed by sampling of peri-implant fluid or biopsy of peri-implant masses or regional lymph nodes.
Queensland woman Emma Carey who miraculously survived a freak skydiving accident has penned an open letter about why she decided to remove her breast implants.

CONCLUSIONS: The indications for prepectoral IBR include moderately-sized breasts with a thick well-vascularized mastectomy flap and concomitant bilateral breast reconstruction with prophylactic mastectomy. PMID: 31775208 [PubMed]

Conclusions: Taking a lesson from composite breast augmentation, composite buttock augmentation is a new method for gluteal reshaping that seeks to use the best of both worlds: the reliable core projection of an implant combined with the natural appearance and feel of fat. Progressive instrument dissection seeks to minimize unnecessary dissection and to accurately and safely define the intramuscular pocket. The intramuscular placement of implants instead of fat should eliminate the risk of fatal fat pulmonary embolism in these patients. CLINICAL QUESTION/LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: Therapeutic, IV.
We report a case of breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma in a 70-year old woman, who 21 years previously had undergone bilateral breast augmentation with textured silicone implants. Eleven years later, she had bilateral implant removal with possible implant leak and presence of ‘atypical cells’ in the seroma. She then opted for prophylactic bilateral mastectomy in view of her strong family history of breast cancer and underwent reconstruction with subcutaneous gel implants. Eight months later, the patient noted right breast swelling and peri-implant effusion. The cytology was suspicious fo...
