Allergan Recall

July 30, 2019 
Due to a Allergan™ voluntary recall of unused BIOCELL products, I wanted to make their letter sent on July 29, 2019 is available to be reviewed. If you have any questions regarding replacing your BIOCELL textured implant with a smooth implant please feel free to contact our office. 

Sincerely, Dr. Linder

July 29, 2019

Dear, Allergan™ Plastic Surgery Customer, in follow-up to the Allergan™ voluntary recall of unused BIOCELL® products, we created the BIOCELL® Replacement Warranty for all patients currently implanted with BIOCELL® textured implants.

For patients in the U.S. who, as a result of the recall announcement on July 24, 2019, choose to replace their BIOCELL® textured devices with smooth devices in consultation with their plastic surgeon, Allergan™ will provide Allergan™ smooth device replacements of a similar size for free. 

The program will run for 12 months, until July 24, 2020, and will apply to revision surgeries on or after the date of the recall announcement, July 24, 2019.
