Over the past fews years, several new breast implants have been introduced. Dr. Sattler has experience with the new textured Allergan and Sientra ‘gummy bear’ form stable silicone implants for cosmetic breast augmentation for his Seattle area patients.
What’s Different about Form Stable silicone implants
The Allergan Natrelle Style 410 shaped silicone implant are ‘form stable’. This means that the implant has a shape of its own that is maintained by a semi-solid silicone fill material. The form stable breast implant imparts some shaping onto the breast.
Both implants have a texturized surface to help the implant feel more like a part of you. Both the Sientra and Allergan implant can be placed above or below the muscle. Both implants are quite durable and appear to be more resistant to capsular contracture scarring than traditional smooth, round silicone implants.
This new shaped implant is exciting because with it, Dr. Sattler is able to create a natural appearing upper breast pole for his Seattle area patients. The new shaped ‘Gummy Bear’ implants are a good choice for patients that desire a natural looking breast augmentation result and do not have excessively sagging breast tissues.
