BREAST IMPLANT LAWSUITS

BREAST IMPLANT LAWSUITS FILED GLOBALLY

Since our last update there has been a growing number of lawsuits filed globally in court systems due to harm caused by breast implants.  In the U.S. some early cases were dismissed due to U.S. pre-emption however three cases have now passed a stage(s) of pre-emption, the Gravitt versus Mentor Case Number #1:2017cv05428 in Illinois, the Sumpter versus Allergan case in Missouri and the Graham versus Mentor case in St Louis.  Since the FDA announcement of textured implants causing BIA-ALCL cancer, BIA-ALCL cases continue to be filed.  And since textured implants were pulled from markets in Europe and Canada, in early 2019 two Canadian lawfirms requested to file class action lawsuits against three textured implant manufacturers selling implants in Canada; Mentor, Allergan and Ideal for failing to warn Canadians about the potential of BIA-ALCL cancer.  Another Canadian lawfirm filed a request for a potential class action against Mentor silicone for systemic symptoms caused by Mentor silicone breast implants.   Recently and since Allergan pulled their textured implants from the U.S. market other class actions against Allergan textured implants may be underway in the U.S. and other countries.

If you are interested to follow the global developments of breast implant lawsuits and most importantly which lawfirms are accepting cases in your area read on and make a comment below and then come to our facebook group Breast Implant Lawsuits where you can get support from over 10,000 other women going through the same process.

DEFECTIVE BREAST IMPLANTS ARE VIABLE CASES

Breast implants are warranted to be safe and last a certain amount of time.  A warranty is a guarantee that the product will perform in a certain way or will conform to certain standards. If the breast implant is defective and ruptures, leaks or becomes deformed before it’s warranty period expires and causes you harm or the breast implant is deemed to be safe and causes you a serious disease such as BIA-ALCL you may have a case.

INFORMED CONSENT NOT GIVEN TO WOMEN

Many women implanted with breast implants were not given prior informed consent before surgery as required.  Prior informed consent before surgery is mandated and outlined by the FDA in the Pre-Market Assessment Letters and the Post Approval Study Criterias.  Failing to give proper informed consent to users as mandated by the FDA is against federal law and noncompliance may result in lawsuits passing pre-emption.  We have collected some of the Pre-Market Assessement/ Post Approval Study Letters so you can read and assess if you were given proper informed consent prior to surgery:

    Hi I’m new to this group and I’m so heartbroken! I believe the ENTIRE medical community has FAILED ME! I’ve had breast implants for 12 years, I’ve been sick for 12 years! Not one Dr or plastic surgeon (second set since first was horrible and my left was just a hard rock!) Told me there was a possibility my implants could be causing my fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, migraines, ibs, numbness and tingling, arthritis, severe back and neck pain etc..etc… 12 years of doctors!! Thousands upon thousands in medical bills, I had to retire from a job I loved at 38!!! I’m 44 now.. I’m beyond overwhelmed and mad that I NEVER received the information to make an informed decision to explant years ago. I need to come up with the money for explant now when I would have done it years ago instead of a second set of toxic tatas!

    Hello, my mom has breast implants that need to be explanted. She has a multitude of health problems related to them. I have contacted one of the surgeons recommended form this page. His office informed me that we have to file for the payment from the implant company ourselves. Do you have any info that would help me? Who do I contact? How do we go about getting payment for this?

      Hi Wendy,
      Find out what type of implants your Mom has and contact the manufacturer of them to enquire. If she does not have records at home of the type of implants she has, the implanting surgeon may still have her file with that information. If neither your Mom or the implanting surgeon has the information, then the explanting surgeon will be able to tell you the type of implants she has when he explants her and he should return those implants to you.

    I am interested in any update regarding the legal aspects in the state of Texas. My wife has had the Mentor Smooth Saline implants for over 10 years now. Her symptoms and health have become progressively worse over the years. Thinking that there were other medical issues involved, we did not pay attention to this, and are now wondering if this has been the culprit all along. Her implant surgery took place in the state of Texas, and to our knowledge are not ruptured or damaged. Do have any helpful thoughts or information that might help us pursue any remuneration. I have a lot of medical records as I monitor my wife’s health very carefully. Thank You!

    Hi, it seems my implants that I had in 1991 by a certified top plastic surgeon were not actually registered in Australia until 1996 when allergan applied with 12 other implants. No wonder I some how fell off the class action lawsuit, I have serial#, original court documents from 20yrs ago & Dr quotes etc, ruptures. capsulation & so on.
    I get explanted next week, and they don’t even want my 28yo implants for testing ???
    Talk about corrupt. Is there anyone else having similar issues, what do I do ?

    I have most of the symptoms everyone here has talked about. Utterly miserable. Sick, hurting, sad, tested for this, for that. Can I add a new one? At age 45, after having had mentor saline implants for 6 years I developed cataracts and was declared legally blind. Everyone was baffled as to why, don’t smoke, don’t drink, great eater, exerciser etc. Eventually it was attributed to all the antibiotics I had to take for lyme and the co-infections for two years. I finally had to have cataract surgery at age 52 which went very well (had lens implanted, YAY more implants!!). I see very well but of course it is not the same as natural eye sight. Very tough as I am an artist. I continued to slowly get sicker. Its has been so gradual I attributed it age and/or lyme complications.

    Now at age 61 I am suspecting the implants. The knowlege stunned me. I got these in 2001. They still look nice. and I am in contstant terrible pain. I wept when I read all these stories and the stolen, agonizing years, pain and sadness for everyone. The mood swings especially have been horrible, on me, my family, I fight daily to stay decent and civil and loving. I am now researching for doctors to explant. Praying for guidance and recovery.

    I’ve had 2 sets of textured implants.
    My last was in May 2005.
    My implants are 14 years old.

    I have been diagnosed with an autoimmune disease.

    I have too many symptoms to mention from blurred vision… weight gain of 50lbs … hair loss… brain fog…. memory loss… teeth and gum problems…chronic fatigue… the list goes on and on.

    Prior to this I was so incredibly healthy and vibrant.

      Omg I had the exact same thing done. I had saline put in and got horrible infection due to the dr not being a plastic surgeon as he claimed and operated on me in his office while I was wide awake. Then attempted to go back in a month later and “fix” one of the implants that was all the way up to my neck. (I started to swell extremely bad in my legs and feet) but they said it wasn’t due to any of that. I had to file a lawsuit and get reconstruction surgery and the plastic surgeon used gummy bear implants and the past two years the swelling has gotten so bad I can’t walk or wear normal clothes. Then I started getting so tired all I could do is roll out of bed and sleep all day. Depression kicked in really bad and my hair started thinning. I went to the Drs and was diagnosed with hashimoto’s thyroiditis an autoimmune disease. My breast hurt so bad it feels like I’m having a heart attack sometimes. I cry every single day. I wish I never got my breast done. So I’m so sorry you’re going through this as well. It’s awful and I don’t know if I should get a hold of a lawyer

    I just had my silicone implants removed by Dr. Virden in Reno NV. Date of Surgery March 18,2019.
    They were put in Spring of 1987, by Dr. Hastings, Reno NV
    When I had them removed the scar tissue in the left breast was so calcified it was like bone.
    I have images to share.
    I tried to have insurance cover the removal, nope only if you have cancer, Really, Geeze!
    I would like to be put on a litigation list, if there’s one.

      Hi, let me know if you find one.
      I was registered with class action but some how no record of me being on it arose, just after closing date at that.
      Even though I still have some 20+ yo usa court documents, we didn’t have pc’s then, it was posted the old way.
      This is for microcell mlp-260 by Dow, I mean McGhan, I mean Allergan which is now Activas.. lol
      And from the research I have done, its disgusting.
      These implantys never got approved in usa, only 2yo so don’t classify as enough history for fda approvals etc, yet Australia got lumped with them, I had them put in 1991, yet the TGA registration was only 1996 about the time my class action documents went missing im sure.
      Registration by Allergan in Australia was not until 1996, yet they stopped being manufactured un 1992, so in other words we got sent mass supplies of unapproved, unwanted, old, test implants, a run most likely to teach new manufacturer McGhan as he was taking over CUI technology & ownership, we were guinea pigs but no one seems to care. And im sitting here with all the proof, hospital admission in 1991, serial # tag, ruptures, capsulations, immune disease, copd, nerve damage etc…
      I get explanted next week but Allergan don’t even want my 28yo implants for testing & have no warranty or compensation for me now, yet I have original quote to replace from my surgeon in 2013 & he says on it implants are free, under warranty. Who is responsible for putting unregistered implants in me?
      Who can I sue for damages as this has ruined my life, so much dishonesty ???

      Hi Lisa,
      Is your explant not covered under OHIP? You may have to approach on rupture, capsular contracture, pain or infection/necrosis to get it covered. If that is not effective you need to save for your explant, others have sold vehicles/jewelry, used savings/retirement funds, usedcredit cards, borrowed funds from family and done gofundme etc.

    I can’t seem to find an attorney who will take my case because I don’t have cancer yet. It doesn’t seem to matter to any of them that I am sick, lost my job due to health issues, and have been unable to regain employment. Are lawyers only helping women who have cancer from the implants?

      Hi Kensi,
      So far those are the cases that they are accepting because the other cases seem to be getting punted out of court unless you have an obviously defective implant such as a rupture then you may have a case.

    I got breast implants 13 years ago mentor smooth saline. My PS told me at that saline was a better and safer alternative to silicone. I began to get sick 6 years out, with extreme fatigue, joint pain, chronic headaches, depression, Weight gain, swollen lymph nodes and severe hair loss. H. Pylori I live taking meds 💊but it won’t go away Hip pain InIlammation throughout my body I had brain. Fog 2mri’s 4CT scans What the PS failed to tell me is that the shell holding the saline is silicone and therefore just as equally as toxic for your body. Women deserve to hear the whole truth about breast implants and the serious consequences they can face by this surgery. I need to have surgery to have them remove but I can’t afford to take them out I’ve asked my doctors if there’s anyway we can put this through my insurance I was told that I need to get letters which I still don’t understand what letters I need to get I need a lot of help I’m always in pain I’ll still get whelps around my boob I get electric feeling shackle round them can someone explain to me what that could be.

      Hi Laura,
      Get a copy of your full insurance policy and read how you may be covered for explant. In general you are covered for explant if you have a rupture, bad capsular contracture, pain or infection/necrosis and those are the symptoms you must approach on. The letter(s) that you need are letters from your doctor/surgeon saying you need to explant based on the symptoms and reasons listed in your insurance policy.

      Hi Laura
      I to got saline implant In 2006. The right side failed in 2007 and was replaced that year. In 2008 i started having really bad headaches. By 2009 i was experiencing cognitive issues, dizziness, vision problems, fatigue, joint pain. I started going to a pain management doctor getting multiple injection and pain medication.
      In 2010 I was diagnosed with stage 3 lung cancer at the age of 42.
      In 2011 the right implant failed again. Since then I’ve not had the financial resources to have it fixed.
      Like you because of all the different symptoms over the course of years. And the neurological difficulties coupled with fatigue and pain. Not to mention depression and frustration. I’m at a complete loss as where I need to start. If I ever want to attempt to file a claim with Medicare. To have them removed. I wish I had help. But I don’t.
      I just wanted to let you know, your not alone.
      I wish you all the best. Keep the faith. God Bless.

        Hi Elaine,
        Your insurance may pay for your explant if you have a ruptured implant, bad capsular contracture, pain or infection necrosis. Get a copy of your full insurance policy and read if explant coverage may be an option for you. Other than insurance, my only suggestions are a gofundme, borrowing, saving or Care Credit. There are no large funds paying for explants right now. Good luck

    I had Reconstruction done to TNBC breast cancer. The first implant was under the muscle and it turned out aweful. The second implants were put over the muscle and they did look nice. In a short time my body was rejecting them. The surgeon replaced them several times. My body rejected them and started to swell. The only other thing he could do was remove them. When he took them out it was December 15th. He butchered me and said he could fix it 6 months down the road. I’m on disability and can’t afford to have the surgery again. I had already met my deductible for the year. It should have been done properly the first time. All of this could have been avoided if he had told me the implants had talc in them. I’m highly allergic to talc. Now I am stuck with this Frankenstein body

    In 2001 I was a 19 year old single mom who just finished breast feeding. I was concerned about implanting silicone vs saline but was told that even if there was a rupture, which would only happen if there was trauma, like I was in a car accident or punched in the chest, it would stay inside the cavity of the scar tissue, the capsule.

    Just a couple years after silicone implants, I started having symptoms. A couple of years after that I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia. I was at the peak of my life, academic scholarships and accolades, raising my daughter etc when my health went downhill. Over a decade-and-a-half of severe health issues which of course affected my daughter’s life as well. I never Associated it with my silicone breast implant since I was told they’re safe.

    How was I even given silicone in 2001 though when the FDA had a ban on them? I’m so confused!

    I’ve recently had two more children and they are being evaluated for developmental delays in the next few weeks and I am having my consult 4 explant immediately with Dr Chun.

    Does anyone have any insight into the legality of having silicone implants in 2001 as a 19 year old?

    No one ever told me about any study. And of course I can’t find my medical records. I believe they are Mentor silicone. I will know more after Explant and talking to a lawyer. I’m also having more lab work done with a endocrinologist re thyroid issues. I’m hoping they will assist in getting the right labs done for heavy metal testing as well.

    Keep you posted!

    I’m just starting off on this BII journey after aong road of suffering and I’m scared. Having this resource and all of you other women sharing and loving on each other makes me feel so not alone. Ty all for sharing and wishing you all healing, health and happiness!

        I’m in the same boat. Struck down in the prime of life 16 yrs ago. 39 yrs old, working full-time as a very busy legal secretary and mother of 2 boys, doing aerobics, weightlifting, caring for my own house and lawn, etc. One of my implants broke, I had them re-done, and 5 months later I was in terrible, burning pain all over and could not go back to work even though God knows I tried. I lost my home on 4 acres, everything I’d worked for on my excellent resumé, my good credit, etc. I have helped to care for my father and my mother during this time and, frankly, if it wasn’t so sad it would be laughable how my pain is/was worse than either of my elderly parents.

        I never put two and two together because every doctor I saw all these years always said that didn’t have anything to do with it, and my mother had been diagnosed in her younger life with fibromyalgia, so I never blamed it on the implants.

        Thank you, Ladies, from the bottom of my heart, for sharing all your painful stories about your losses, so that all of the rest of us can feel validation and like there’s hope post-breast implants. Thank God I had a tiny stash of savings to pay for my surgery because other than that I wouldn’t be able to afford it. I’m planning to get them out immediately and have confidence He’s gonna resurrect me from the ashes!

        I pray hope and recovery for you all. Never give up hope! The Lord can do miraculous things when we invoke His help. If it weren’t for Him, I never would have been able to live through this past 16 years of loss or finally figured out what is wrong.

        Love!!!

    After chemo treatment was completed, I was given a date for surgery for a double mastectomy. On October 28, 2018, I was admitted to the Texas Women’s Hospital in Houston,Texas. I did not sign an authorization for implants to be put in for reconstruction,but after waking up from surgery, I found that I was given implants that were inflated to a 38c. Before surgery, I was no larger than a 32aa cup. I was sent home the very next day with the tubes still in my chest. The surgeon from Lift Plastic at 7400 Fannin Street, never explained the ups and downs that I would be facing. Having to sleep sitting up and staying so exhausted, I stayed completely depressed and emotional. Feeling that I was used to do his experiments, as he lacked experience, I felt like I was forced into having implants. I informed the doctor that I was 62 years of age, and I was not vain in any aspect of my life. He did not explain what and how he was going to do the surgery…he demanded and told me what he was going to do. He would not take no for an answer. He made me feel intimadated as he took full control. When I asked for copies of my medical records and any authorizations….his office said there were none. He refused to see me again, only adding more antibiotics….5 in one day. After 10 days, I went to the emergency room, as the incisions had opened up 3″ and the implants were falling out. Emergency surgery was done….supposedly to remove the implants. When I woke up, the “filler tubes” were still there, infected, but the implants had been deflated…not removed AS REQUESTED. My body is still rejecting them, trying to push them out, but apparently they are stitched to the muscles in my chest….they couldn’t remove all the stitches, when I went in this time….but to a different doctor.

    What are my options to get this remedied? No one wants to fix the incompetant mess that the first doctor made. I need this fixed ASAP.

      I’m having all of symptoms including flu like symptoms and those of different sensations. Feel like a frozen lake in middle of my chest. I swelled a lot up until recently where I’m losing a lot of weight. I’ve had to toss my family dr because he knows everything but does nothing. I’ve been composing if chest pain bc of my heart condition I get sent to cardiology they confirm heart and were done. I’ve now learned I have to same dr with each symptom one at a time so they get paid. I pay a lot of money for health care. We have double private insurance and pay the maximum for MSP but still can’t get any medical attention. I went to the hospital when the serious symptoms were present. The Dr was rude and told me to go home and pick a dr. He was only concerned that I had gotten this far after two hospital visits and four different clinics with my GP being one and the clinic that finally helped me happen to have two different and caring Dr. Yes at least two exist still. Everyone things I’m faking my symptoms. I’m finally getting a cut soon I hope. But I’m in lust for every specialist at this point. Scared don’t know what to do or where to get help. I got mine 5 years ago and learned today about how often they should get checked. 5 years not checked. No one told me that I remember or followed up with me

    Hi Shelia, I had my silicone breast implants in 1991 and I am now 66 years old, I to was never told I would have to get them replaced after 10 years, I thought they were in for life. I would have never had them if I would have known. I can still get around, still exercise and eat fairly well but now that I read all the symptoms associated with implants a red flag comes up. I have a lot of these symptoms, insomnia, joint inflammation, tingling in hands and feet, fatigue, incontinence, jaw problems, memory loss, and the list goes on. I never would have thought the implants were the cause. I am scared but really want them out so I can live to see my grandkids graduate and get married. I live in Canada so I might have problems finding a surgeon that does explants and I can’t afford going to the states to get it done. If someone from Winnipeg has had them removed I would really appreciate a name and address. Thank you.

    I have silicone breast implants that are about 35 years old. I have had problems for many years with hardening of my left breast. My right breast is not as bad, but still painful. I saw a plastic surgeon about 2 weeks ago for a consultation on getting them removed. I have Hypothyroidism and recently had a positive ANA, although the ANA was only slightly positive. I’ve suffered with many autoimmune type symptoms for many, many years. At one time was told I “probably have fibromyalgia”. I ran across this information totally by “chance”…as I was seeking information to deal with the hypothyroidism. The surgeon said the operation would take 3 hours and suggested I probably would not be happy with the cosmetic result. Also, I learned that my insurance probably would not agree to pay for the surgery. I have Medicare and a Medicare Supplement. My other option would be to pay over $3000.00 for the operation myself. My right breast is very painful and the scarring (?) was even mentioned on recent CT Chest imaging reports. I am very interested in this lawsuit. I joined the previous lawsuit years ago, but after the initial settlement, they said I didn’t quality for the remainder due to not receiving my information (I did send it). I gave up..but have continued to suffer all these years with this mysterious cascade of vague symptoms. Please advise me.

      Hi Evelynn,
      Your symptoms are classic breast implant illness symptoms and the solution is to explant your implants properly and allow your body to detox and heal over time and your symptoms most likely will go away, thousands and thousands are explanting and healing.
