A Step-By-Step Guide to Making a Breast Implant Recall Claim

In July 2019, in light of the rising number of cases of BIA-ALCL, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requested that Allergan recall its textured breast implants from the U.S. market.

Medical recalls are scary, whether they're breast implants, a Philips CPAP machine, Metformin, or even sunscreen. So if you've been using Neutrogena sunscreen or eating Tyson chicken or Hot Pockets, you want to know why it's been recalled and how to make your case.

How Do You Make a Claim for the Breast Implant Recall?

If you have breast implants from the Allergan manufacturer, you can contact your doctor to verify that your breast implant is part of the recall and get further instructions. However, there are problems with this plan. Many people don't have a regular PCP, and it's difficult to tell if your breast implants are part of the recall.

Your surgery was also, likely, wildly expensive, and there's no word on whether you will be reimbursed or who would do it. You deserve to have the money you spent on your surgery be reimbursed and to find out how you can claim it easily.

Making a recall is a strenuous process. This is mainly because most manufacturers are uncooperative, as they are likely to make losses in the process. As a result, most victims give up in the process, leading to considerable losses. DoNotPay has come to their rescue by making claims for recalled products like the current Breast Implant recall easy and fast. Those affected are only required to follow some simple steps in our Product Recall Claims pro.

Potentially, anyone who got breast implants from one of the largest manufacturers of breast implants in the world, hundreds of thousands of women received Allergan's textured breast implants, which were sold under the brands McGhan, Inamed, and Natrelle from 1998 to 2019.
