An Alternative to Round Implants

Finally, there is an alternative to the traditional soft, round implant! Now approved by the FDA for use in the United States, the Natrelle® 410 cohesive gel implant is a pre-shaped implant that gives a natural breast shape and profile. Cohesive gel is more stable than traditional saline or silicone, resulting in a breast that is firmer with more predictable results. There are 143 shapes and sizes to choose from, so speak with your Parkcrest Plastic Surgery physician about the option that will provide the best possible results.

Why choose shaped gel implants?

1. Retains Shape

Since the cohesive gel implant retains its shape, it allows you to choose the natural breast shape you want and not be affected by natural forces that impact traditional breast implants and can distort their appearance (such as motion or gravity).

2. No Folds & Rippling

Since the 410 breast implant is filled with cohesive gel that does not shift, shell collapse and folding are much less likely to occur. Additionally, wrinkling of the 410 gel implant was only 0.7% and 0.3%, respectively. In the seven-year study, there was a 97% satisfaction rate among primary breast augmentation patients.

3. Reduced Likelihood of Hardening

In the FDA study of nearly 1000 patients, the 410 silicone gel implant performed significantly better than the current moderately cohesive silicone gel implants that have been in use in the United States since the 1990s. The most notable fact in the study is that the risk of capsular contracture (hardening around the implant from excess development of scar tissue) at seven years of the 410 gel implants was nearly three times less than that of round gel implants (6.1% for 410 and 15.5% for round gel implants).

4. Firmer, More Youthful Feeling Results

Unlike traditional silicone or saline filled implants, cohesive gel implants are firmer and feel more like a young breast with firmer breast tissue. For younger patients, the feel of the cohesive gel implant is very natural and familiar.
