How do you prevent BIA-ALCL?

Updated: Sep 22, 2020

The best prevention (greatest risk reduction) from BIA-ALCL is to either get smooth implants or avoid implants altogether by getting a natural breast augmentation using your own fat. But if you already have texture implants, the most effective way of reducing your risk of BIA-ALCL is to remove the textured implants and replace them with smooth implants or your own fat AND to have a complete removal of the capsule or scar tissue surrounding the implants, also known as En Bloc Total Capsulectomy.
