Shaped gel implants had previously been restricted for general use by the FDA – but now they are available for patients seeking the best breast augmentationresult. Anatomically shaped gel breast implants enhance the breast contour to produce a full central breast shape as well as a naturally sloped upper breast shape. These implants contain a cohesive form of silicone gel referred to as the “gummy” gel. This gel characteristic produces a natural feel as well as an expected long implant lifespan. The anatomically shaped implants are also associated with a lower likelihood of producing visible rippling on the surface of the augmented breast. Their availability to breast augmentation patients will certainly allow for even better aesthetic results than ever before.
