Breast augmentation technology continues to make great strides. There are four particular recent advancements that may mean even more options for women who wish to enhance their figure.
The IDEAL Implant is a saline implant with an innovative design that includes two separate chambers and a series of internal shells that control the saline solution’s movement. This construction is intended to minimize the chance of rupture and reduce the wrinkling associated with traditional saline implants.
Recently approved by the FDA and only available from board certified plastic surgeons, this implant could offer many of the preferred characteristics previously achievable only with silicone implants.
New Round Implants by Sientra
Sientra has long been a leader in the best breast implants. The company recently launched a new, round implant filled with high-strength cohesive+ (HSC+) silicone gel.
Until recently, this dense silicone gel was only available in teardrop-shaped implants. Now women who prefer a round implant can also enjoy some of benefits of HSC+:*
- Less visible wrinkling*
- Similar in feeling to natural breast tissue*
- Lower rate of capsular contracture*
The new INSPIRA™ implants were created for women who want augmented breasts with more upper breast fullness than had been previously possible. Natrelle INSPIRA™ implants are round and gel-filled, with a textured implant surface designed to minimize implant movement after placement.
The Keller Funnel™ is a device that can offer considerable advantages during breast augmentation surgery. Use of this device allows surgeons to insert a silicone implant directly into the breast pocket, eliminating direct contact with skin or breast tissue. This greatly reduces the possibility of infection and capsular contracture,* and puts less pressure on the implant. The Keller Funnel™ also uses a smaller incision, which can mean less noticeable scars.*
