This Singapore Plastic Surgeon Discusses The Link Of Textured Breast Implants To Lymphoma (BIA-ALCL)

This Singapore Plastic Surgeon Discusses The Link Of Textured Breast Implants To Lymphoma (BIA-ALCL)

Breast implants are prosthetics that are used to alter the shape, size, and contour of a person’s breasts. They are commonly used for breast reconstruction in women after breast cancer surgery or for correction of deformities from birth. They are also used to augment the natural appearance of breasts in women seeking cosmetic enhancements. Getting breast implants is increasingly common and patients have been seeing positive results. However, recent developments have led to a correlation between breast implants and BIA-ALCL (Breast Implant-Associated Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma).

There has been an increased incidence of BIA-ALCL reported mainly in America, Europe, and Australia over the years and Singapore has seen it’s first case recently. What is this condition and how does it affect patients who have been diagnosed or who are at risk of being exposed? Here are facts and concerns surrounding BIA-ALCL and the relation to other potential issues regarding breast implants.

Fat Transfer Versus Breast Implants: A Singaporean Plastic Surgeon Discusses

Fat Transfer Versus Breast Implants: A Singaporean Plastic Surgeon Discusses

Excess fat can often be unnecessary, but in the case of breast augmentation, a patient’s own fat can be helpful to reshape the body. Breast implants are also an option for women who are looking to enhance the shape of their breasts. It may be worth learning about both fat transfer and breast implants to find out which is more appropriate for your situation.

Dr Colin Tham is a plastic surgeon who answered a question from a DoctorxDentist reader about fat transfer versus breast implants. Here are some key takeaways.

The minimal invasive injection of breast fillers was an attractive alternative to permanent breast implants for many women. This is performed under local anaesthesia, and patients do not require hospitalisation or have long recovery times. However, there have been many breast filler...

Many patients do travel overseas for surgery. In general, I wouldn't advise it if there are capable surgeons in your own country. I do understand that Singapore is quite expensive for many cosmetic procedures. Part of the reason it is expensive is for patients' safety. Invasiv...

Thank you for your question. This is a very pertinent question for patients or parents considering breast augmentation. Because the changes from plastic surgery are often dramatic and permanent, it is important to have an understanding of how surgery can have an effect on you both physically and p...
