Breast Implant Safety Alliance
Secretary and Legislative Liaison
Presentation: Call to Action
Robyn Towt is a breast cancer survivor. She was diagnosed in 2017, had a double mastectomy and reconstruction with Mentor Silicone breast implants which caused an array of debilitating health issues. Robyn had explant surgery after just four months of having implants and her symptoms completely resolved. This experience led her to become an advocate for raising awareness about breast implant safety.
Robyn has shared her testimony twice at the FDA in Washington D.C. She is also an administrator in the Facebook group Arizona Breast Implant Illness and Information. She works closely with local plastic surgeons and the Arizona Society of Plastic Surgeons. Robyn has been a strong advocate at the Arizona state capitol, working with state legislators on implementing legislation that will mandate surgeons to provide patients with proper informed consent and patient information literature.
Robyn is passionate about being a part of BISA, raising awareness and protecting patients. Every patient should be given the opportunity to make an informed decision regarding breast implants and every patient deserves to have all of the information prior to having surgery.
