“Best Doctors of 2014”

Dr. McGuire is a clinical investigator for Allergan’s Style 410 highly cohesive (gummy bear) implant. In 2001, she was one of the first surgeons in the area to be invited to participate in this study. The Style 410 implant has been available in Europe since 1991 and was approved in Canada in 2006. It is currently available in the United States under study protocol to a limited number of plastic surgeons. The Style 410 Matrix offers 144 implants in 12 shapes to allow a more “custom” implant for breast augmentation and cancer reconstruction. The Style 410 implant has the highest number of cross-links between the silicone molecules and, therefore, is the most “cohesive” of the currently available cohesive implants. This gives a high safety margin, with a low risk of rupture with gel bleed, and a low capsular contracture rate.

Dr. McGuire’s experience was presented in a paper at the International Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons in Melbourne, Australia in February of 2008. Dr. McGuire is one of eight plastic surgeons chosen to be a consultant for the curriculum committee for Allergan to teach other physicians how to use the Style 410 implant. Dr. McGuire spent time in Stockholm, Sweden in June 2006 with Dr. Charles Randquist, considered an international expert in the use of the Style 410 implant. Dr. McGuire also has extensive experience with other options for breast implants including silicone gel and saline implants. They use dimensional planning, using the patient’s anatomy to determine the best option for each patient. The Style 410 implant is not always the best choice for breast augmentation and their experience with all types of implants, including the Style 410, can help a patient decide which implant is best for them.
