See below for latest post from Australian Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons regarding the latest information regarding ALCL. Ive asked permission from the authors to repost the journal article here for you to read. I will update if we get approval. "The latest paper on BIA-ALCL was published yesterday in the @aestheticsurgeryjournal_asj with some new and interesting conclusions. Non-certified physicians (they call themselves ‘Cosmetic Surgeons’), despite performing the minority of breast surgery operations, were responsible for 73% of cases of BIA-ALCL.A non-certified physician has not completed the extensive training a Specialist Plastic Surgeon undergoes and therefore are not certified as a Fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (FRACS). This paper reinforces the importance of researching your surgeon and ensuring they are accredited as a Plastic Surgeon." Congratulations to #ASAPSMembers@drmarkmagnusson and @profdevafor publishing this insightful research."
