FDA Approval has Passed On a New Breast Implant

The plastic surgery industry has seen a 5% increase in the last year. This is in large part due to an increase in non-invasive procedures such as Botox injections. While non-invasive treatments are on the rise, one surgical procedure continues to be the most popular plastic surgery procedure again in 2012. Breast augmentations remain as popular as they have ever been and the trend shows no sign of slowing any time soon.

With breast augmentation surgery being so popular, research is continuously being done to discover the latest techniques and tools to improve results. Last week, the FDA has granted its seal of approval to a new silicone gel-filled breast implant by Allergan Medical.

The Natrelle 410 implant is a design improvement over other gel-filled breast implants, providing a firmer breast implant while maintaining a natural look and feel. The initial reaction to the Natrelle 410 has been overwhelmingly positive, and surgeons are excited to begin offering them to patients everywhere.

While the Natrelle 410 breast implant is exciting news in the world of plastic surgery, it is important to remember this is a new product and requires a great deal of precision in placing the implant. This means surgeons implementing this new technique need to be experienced, board certified plastic surgeons who will take care in positioning the implant properly to get the correct symmetry and natural looking results.

Like any device utilized in cosmetic surgery, the Natrelle 410 implant may or may not be the right choice for everyone. Possible patients for the new Natrelle 410 are:

  • Patients with constricted lower pole breasts.
  • Patients with deformities in their chest wall.
  • Patients who have issues with breast asymmetry.
  • Patients in need of breast reconstruction.
  • Patient seeking breast augmentation.

With proper implanting techniques and the right candidate, the Natrelle 410 implant can create wonderful, natural looking breasts for patients who would otherwise have difficulty with other types of breast implants.

The FDA approval of the Natrelle 410 is big news in the world of plastic surgery and breast augmentation.
