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 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, 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.

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

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 and noncompliance may result in lawsuits passing pre-emption.  We have collected some of the Pre-Market Assessment/ Post Approval Study Letters so you can read and assess if you were given proper informed consent prior to surgery:

    I have only had my implants for ten months,allergen smooth cohesive,I have gotten very sick from them to the point I can’t work.if I would of known this could happen I would of never got them!!its so hard to get someone to believe me I’m laying here with a headache body aching and chronic fatigue.i just want them out but can afford it my ps said he would do if but he don’t take capsules out and he sucks it out .i no this isn’t right I slowly feel like I’m dieing and I feel like my dr should of told me of the sickness!

      I believe you Dawn. I too had smooth silicone gel implants that were put in after breast cancer . I had a double mastectomy. They were put in 2017. I have chronic Lyme disease specifically auto immune disease. I became very ill immediately! I had chronic fatigue and terrible pain and a lot of all the other breast implant illness symptoms. I kept telling my husband that I was not long for this world. I felt like I was going to die. I became a shell of myself and stayed in most of the time. In 2019, I went to see a new Lyme physician who told me my body was trying to coexist with the implants. I immediately started researching and found out that these poisons were leaching into my system. My body was trying to fight the implants . The Lyme took a backseat and was worsening. When I read the breast implant illness, I was shocked to see that I had many of the symptoms. After visiting my Lyme physician again, it was clear to me that I needed to get them out. Now, trying to find someone that would explant and do a capsulectomy on both sides including scraping the implants off my ribs was my mission. I already had 7
      surgeries related to my cancer and much medical debt. My son and I both have Lyme and need very expensive injections weekly and my husband has a heart condition.
      Through the grace of God and probably my deceased parents, a surgeon’s name popped up and to my surprise, she specialized in explanting, doing a perforated flap specifically DIEP procedure. In November 2019, she did a delay procedure where she got fat in my abdomen ready to be put into my breasts for the next surgery. This involved cutting me from side to side…. a 5 hour surgery. Next on December 10th, my doctor had to do a full capsulectomy leaving no silicone behind. To her surprise when she opened me up, the implant had breached and silicone was all over my right breast. No wonder I was so sick. That added 2 more hours on to the ten hour surgery. She literally had to scrape the silicone off my ribs as well as scrape the implants off of them. A bloody mess. After that the fat/ flap had to be put in each breast and all the blood vessels had to be reattached with the help of a micro surgeon. Both the abdomen and breasts had to be closed up. Next I was put into ICU for about 1 1/2 days to make sure the fat took and then was put onto the surgical floor. I was home by the weekend. I then spent 8 weeks in a recliner day and night. I am now driving and doing physical therapy. I am awaiting my final surgery in May to finish the reconstruction on my breasts. Lastly, she will provide a specialized tattoo artist who will tattoo my ariola in around the new nipple she constructed. My doctor is an excellent surgeon who is kind and caring. She puts you first and understands how you feel. Her staff is equally kind and caring. Your health always comes first. I went to Northern Westchester Hospital in New York. I can’t say enough good things about that hospital. My doctor made sure I had my own nurse and a private room. They were all so kind and caring from the time I entered the hospital to the time I left. My husband stayed with me all week in my room.
      My surgeon is Dr. Julie Vasile. Don’t wait Dawn, call her or Email her. I sent an email and she called me directly. She is a top surgeon and does an impeccable job. I felt safe and trusted her. She truly saved my life as well as my Lyme physician. Feel free to contact me. God Bless.
