Breast implant monitoring is important to patients, advocates, physicians and even manufacturers. That’s why Allergan is backing the Aesthetic Society creation of the Patient App. The HIPAA-compliant personalized mobile app will securely store patient implant records and offer information and safety updates, as well give patients a way to send feedback.

The Patient App’s roots go back to a March FDA General and Plastic Surgery Devices panel meeting about the risks and safety of breast implants.
