Portsmouth, New Hampshire – Dr. Lawrence Gray and Dr. Brannon Claytor have already completed cases with the recently FDA approved Natrelle 410 highly cohesive shaped silicone – filled breast implants. The new silicone gel shaped breast implants arefor use in breast reconstruction, augmentation and revision surgery. Also called “tear drop”, shaped implants or anatomical breast implants, they create a very natural looking breast shape.
“The Natrelle 410 implants allow for soft tissue reconstruction with proportionate volume and provides less upper pole fullness”, according to Dr. Brannon Claytor, board certified plastic surgeon. “The shaped implant is able to replace tissue which has been removed due to cancer or trauma. The implants have a soft feel andare form stable, which provides an aesthetically pleasing shape that will stay that way. Both my patients and I have been very pleased with the results.”
“We are very happy that the new silicone gel shaped implants offers another choice for patients who do not who want less volume superiorly (at the top of the breast) and who want more of a natural shape”, states Dr. Lawrence Gray. “The Natrelle 410 shaped gel implant imitates the soft slope of a mature breast nicely with a pleasing amount of breast tissue. This alternative to round silicone and to saline implants helps women attain the look they want, which is what we are all about here at Atlantic Plastic Surgery Center.”
Shaped implants are filled with ahighly cohesive silicone gel which is designed to hold the implant’s shape over time and still have a soft feel. Shaped implants also present important advantages, such as maintaining their shape and remaining an upright position and are unlikely to wrinkle, fold or ripple.
