FDA Guidance for Routine Silicone Breast Implant Screening

The Wall Center for Plastic Surgery

At the Wall Center, your health and well-being are of paramount importance to us. We want to ensure that you are informed about the latest recommendations from the FDA regarding routine screening for women with silicone gel breast implants and the free screening available at our center.

The FDA now advises that women with silicone gel breast implants should undergo routine Ultrasound or MRI screenings. These screenings should commence at 5 years after implantation and be repeated every 2-3 years thereafter. This proactive approach allows us to monitor the integrity of your implants and detect any potential issues early on.

We are pleased to inform you that our very own Dr. Holly Wall and Dr. Simeon Wall Jr. have received specialized training in breast implant ultrasounds and are offering this service to all Wall Center patients – and the best part is, it’s absolutely FREE of charge.

Why Ultrasound?

Ultrasound is a safe and non-invasive procedure that does not involve any radiation. It is considered the most effective method for detecting a silent rupture in the shell of your gel breast implant. Early detection can be crucial in ensuring your continued health and peace of mind.

How to Schedule Your Appointment

We encourage all our patients with silicone gel breast implants to take advantage of this complimentary screening service. Please call us at 318-795-0801 to schedule your follow-up appointment. Our dedicated team will work with you to find a convenient time for your screening.

What If an Issue is Detected?

It’s important to note that most women who experience a silent rupture of their implant are typically covered under warranty. This means that, in the event of a rupture, your implants can be replaced without any additional cost for new implants. Your health and satisfaction are our top priorities, and we will guide you through every step of the process should any concerns arise.

We genuinely look forward to seeing you for your screening appointment. Your well-being is our primary concern, and these routine ultrasounds are an essential step in ensuring the continued health and safety of your silicone gel breast implants.

If you have any questions or concerns or if you would like to schedule your appointment, please do not hesitate to contact us. We are here to provide you with the highest level of care and support.
