FDA approves new firmer silicone gel breast implant
The U.S. FDA has recently approved Allergan’s Natrelle style 410 breast implants for women 22 years and older, and for breast reconstruction in women of any age. The style 410 is firmer than previous implants, and is more “cohesive” in nature – often referred to as a “gummy bear” implant. We are excited for the potential use of these FDA approved breast implants for appropriate candidates, and as always we will keep our patients informed of the latest in the plastic surgery marketplace. Stay tuned for more information on the market availability of these new implants as they are released by the manufacturer.
