Manufacturer Contact?

I have had my McGhan saline implants for 6 years. I got a mammogram in August, and now my left implant is flat. How can I contact the manufacturer so I can get it replaced?

Manufacture Contract after Breast Implant Deflation?

+2

You will be best off communicating with the breast implant manufacturer through  your plastic surgeon's office. Follow-up with your plastic surgeon and communicate  your goals/options. Some patients take this “opportunity” to otherwise alter the breasts ( change size and/or type of breast implant).

 Best wishes.

You can easily look up the contact info for Allergan online. You should also be able to get this from your surgeon's office. They should be able to help facilitate the exchange for you.

Flat implant after mammogram

The best way to do this is to see your friendly neighborhood plastic surgeon - they can help you with the manufacturer's warranty stuff.  That will be much quicker than trying to contact the right person at Allergan (who purchased McGhan) yourself.

How To Get A Deflated Breast Implant Replaced

You will need to work through a plastic surgeon to intiate this process. It begins by finding a surgeon and letting them coordinate the actual paperwork and implant replacement with the manufacturer. There is nothing that you can do to intiate the process on your own.

Implant deflation

Sorry to hear about your deflation. it is best to find a surgeon who you want to take care of you, hopefully your original surgeon. The surgeon's office will be able to handle the logistics with McGhan in order to get your replacement implant.

Implant Deflation

Contact your plastic surgeon's office. They should have documentation of your surgery date and implant serial numbers. As long as your surgery was less than 10 years ago, the Allergan company (formerly McGhan) will provide some financial assistance as well as a free replacement implant. You also should have been provided an implant information card at the time of your surgery, which will have your date of surgery and relevant implant numbers. Best of Luck!
