Statement by Clinica Granado Tiagonce as an answer to the logical concern about the social alarm created recently by the recall of certain breast implants in France.
We want to clarify that the so-called LACG is a process that appears in a minimum percentage of patients with breast prostheses, and in the cases that have arisen, a higher prevalence in implants that have a macrotextured cover has been observed although without being statistically significant.
The degree of texture or roughness of the prosthesis cover depends on the different models used by each of the breast prosthesis manufacturers.
All the commercial houses have within their catalogs smooth and rough cover prostheses but the said texture can be larger or macro and smaller or micro.
As for the prostheses with which our Clinic is working, these are the ergonomic microtextured Motiva and they are not among those prohibited in France.
We also work with the microtextured prostheses of Mentor and B-lite.
We attach statements from some of the most influential societies in our sector in this regard, including the American Society of Plastic Surgeons of which Dr. Granado is a member, that have always been extremely cautious about it.
