The emergency physician summoned the on-call plastic surgeon, who admitted him to the hospital and scheduled him for surgery the next day. Shortly before surgery, the doctor introduced Ensor to a second plastic surgeon who would assist in the 90-minute proced...

Unfortunately, textured surfaces on breast implants have also been linked to the development of Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma (ALCL), an adverse effect beyond any associated just with the long-term presence of silicone. FDA has noted that factors influencing ALCL inclu...
