Breast Implant Safety Educational Event

Breast Implant Safety Educational Event

In response to the recently published reports highlighting concerns with certain breast implants, Dr. Larry Nicther and Dr. Jed Horowitz, board-certified plastic surgeons at Pacific Center for Plastic Surgery, are hosting an educational event on Thursday, April 18, 2019, to inform women with breast implants and those considering breast implants about potential risks and medical issues.

Drs. Horowitz and Nichter, along with other plastic surgeons, over the years, have seen an increasing number of patients with ill-defined problems often involving connective tissue and autoimmune conditions that patients and occasionally other medical doctors felt might be related to their silicone breast implants Recently, there is a growing body of evidence in the scientific literature linking silicone gel but notsaline breast implants to autoimmune disease, and a growing number of Breast Implant-Related Illnesses and symptoms. Now, not only are there the more common issues for women to be aware of such as capsular contracture, rupture, deflation, etc., but also the more serious medical issues that stand to be a risk.

Both doctors are passionate about patient education and want to stay ahead of this mounting topic. As breast revision specialists, they perform countless surgeries each year on women with breast implant complications. In an effort to ensure women are educated and have the knowledge necessary to make better decisions, this event is being held at no cost to anyone who is able to attend. Space is limited to just 20 attendees on April 18th. As demand grows for this information, additional dates will become available.
