FDA issues black box warning for breast implants

The Food and Drug Administration placed a “black box” warning on breast implants to advise patients of health risks and side effects, according to the New York Times. Federal regulators ordered manufacturers to only sell implants to providers who agree to communicate all the risks to patients prior to surgery. The warning, along with a new checklist for patients and providers to review before surgery, states that breast implants have been linked to several serious health conditions, including a cancer of the immune system and several autoimmune diseases.
