BREAST IMPLANT LAWSUITS PICKED UP AS OF OCTOBER 2016
Every day hundreds of women are reporting profound illness and health problems due to saline and silicone breast implants to government organizations, the medical community, health professionals, breast implant awareness communities, websites and social platforms. The crux of the issue is that breast implant manufacturers are not presenting accurate studies and are withholding significant and truthful information about the toxic contents of their products and the fact that the chemicals and heavy metals in saline and silicone breast implants are seriously toxic to and interact with and harm our tissues and body processes required for good health. Additionally, plastic surgeons are lying to patients about the safety of silicone and the safety of breast implants. Doctors and Plastic Surgeons deny that symptoms of our illness and symptoms of our autoimmune diseases are from breast implants even though some of these symptoms and illnesses are listed in the manufacturer’s patient information and should be well known to plastic surgeons and fully disclosed to patients.
If we were told that silicone and breast implants are made of highly toxic chemicals and when implanted these chemicals will create profound illness in the body, we would never have purchased breast implants. If we were told that breast implants microscopically sweat and bleed their toxic contents early after implantation we would not have bought breast implants. If we were informed of the accurate failure rates of breast implants we would never have purchased them. Proper disclosure of the true realities and true health consequences of breast implants is not occurring and, in fact, most of the medical community is outright lying about the safety of silicone and quoting dubious science created by breast implant manufacturers that covers up the truth about their toxic products. Government organizations such as the FDA and Health Canada are doing nothing to protect women from these corporations making toxic products and in fact seem to be part of the cover up.
Thank goodness for social media that provides the ability to spread truth about the toxicity of silicone and the grave health consequences of breast implants and other implanted silicone medical devices. Please continue to share this website on social media and social platforms to keep spreading truth. The next logical step is organizing and collecting data which will result in and aid lawsuits against doctors and breast implant manufacturers who fail to disclose the truth about their harmful products.
If you are thinking of getting breast implants, we highly suggest before you do that you get a baseline of medical testing to show your health status. We suggest that you take a witness and a recording device with you and record your plastic surgeon telling you that implants are safe and that silicone is an inert substance that does not interact with your tissues. This is the pathetic lie that has been coined and is told over and over again to patients. If your plastic surgeon refers you to junk science to prove implants are safe, obtain a copy of this junk science for your files. You will need these things for future lawsuits against plastic surgeons and against implant manufacturers. Record pertinent information about your implants such as the brand, manufacturer and serial numbers. Obtain your implantation surgery reports and any documentation in regard to the implantation process. Then, as breast implant illness presents, which it will, we suggest documenting symptoms and doctors visits on an ongoing basis and documenting the general decline in your health by collecting professional data such as tests results, diagnoses, chemical and heavy metal tests all signed off by medical professionals showing the facts of your arising health problems due to breast implants and their chemicals and heavy metals. Before you explant, consult a lawyer regarding how your implants and capsule tissue should be handled, preserved and stored to preserve your case. Build your case all along the way. Implant manufacturers and plastic surgeons are failing to properly disclose the truth and health consequences of implants and they are leaving themselves liable for lawsuits. If you already have breast implants start collecting all the same data to build your case.

LITIGATION NEW MAY 2018
Michelle Rea of Fairfax, Virginia filed a lawsuit here on May 8, 2018 in the Superior Court of New Jersey, Middlesex County. Rea under underwent reconstructive surgery for a partial mastectomy in 2011. Approximately five years later, she was diagnosed with anaplastic large cell lymphoma, which was caused by a Natrelle Style 410 implant made by Allergan, Inc., the suit alleges. The suit alleges that Allergan fraudulently conveyed false and misleading information “and concealed the risks of serious adverse events associated with its breast implants from plaintiffs, the public, physicians, and other healthcare providers,” the lawsuit said. Michelle is represented by Ross Feller Casey LLP of Philidelphia, Pennsylvania.
LITIGATION NEWS APRIL 2018
Renee Cashen and her husband Richard Cashen filed a lawsuit here in the Superior Court of New Jersey on April 27, 2018 against Johnson & Johnson, Ethicon Inc. and Mentor Worldwide LLC alleging that Mentor’s textured MemoryGel Siltex silicone breast implants caused her BIA-ALCL breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma which is a form of cancer and alleging Mentor failed to properly comply with the FDA’s requirements to collect data to track longterm safety of their implants. Renee and Richard Cashen are represented by Ross Feller Casey LLP and McEldrew Young of Philidelphia, Pennsylvania.
LITIGATION NEWS MARCH 2018
Vivian Skelton filed a complaint here in Los Angeles County Superior Court on March 2, 2018 against Allergan Inc and Allergan USA Inc. alleging that Allergan’s Natrelle silicone breast implants caused her BIA-ALCL breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma which is a from of cancer. Skelton’s complaint says “Allergan failed to report adverse events from the post market approval studies commissioned as part of the implant’s PMA approval, which would have led to reports suggesting the device’s contribution to serious injury,” and her lawsuit states. “The purpose of monitoring a product’s post-market experience is to detect potential safety signals that could indicate to the manufacturer and the medical community that a public safety problem exists. If a manufacturer waits to report post-market information, even for a few weeks or months, that bottleneck could mean that researchers, regulatory bodies, and the medical community are years behind in identifying a public safety issue associated with the device. In the meantime, more patients are harmed by using the product without understanding its true risks.” Vivian Skelton is represented by Lenze Lawyers PLC of Manhattan Beach, California and Finson Law Firm LLC of Marina Del Ray, California.
