Before Deciding on Breast Implants, Consider FDA Precautions
Date:2/27/2013

ry and the way the implants might affect your life. Be sure to tell your surgeon about previous surgeries and your body's response -- for example, whether surgery resulted in excessive scar tissue -- and outline your expectations.

Learn about the long-term risks of breast implants. For example, women with breast implants may have a slightly increased risk of anaplastic large cell lymphoma, a rare type of non-Hodgkin lymphoma, the FDA said.

Women with silicone implants should get MRI screenings to detect ruptures three years after receiving the implants and every two years after that.

Burns said women with breast implants need to continue to perform breast self-examinations and to get mammograms to screen for early signs of cancer.

"Just because you have implants doesn't mean you can ignore other breast health recommendations," she said.
