New Allergan Anatomically Shaped Highly Cohesive Gel Breast Implants

The ideal patient for the new Natrelle 410 anatomically shaped highly cohesive gel implant is one who has a small natural breast with little or no ptosis (droopiness) and who wants a natural look with less fullness in the upper portion of the breast.  Many women want a less dramatic look in the upper portion of the breast, and the new Natrelle 410 can accomplish this.

The new Natrelle 410 has the advantage of 3-dimensional sizing options.  The patient is carefully measured and the implant is sized in regard to height, projection, base width and volume.  The anatomic shape and highly cohesive nature of the gel insures that the implant will maintain its shape once inside the breast.  I have found that many patients think that choosing a round implant guarantees a large degree of upper pole fullness.  This is not the case, as a round gel implant will flow into a teardrop shape once inside the breast.  Many women think that the dramatic fullness often seen with implants is a result of the round shape of the implant.  It is more a function of the size of the implant rather than the shape, and a round gel implant can provide a very natural-appearing breast if sized correctly.

The new Natrelle 410 is a great option for women who desire a more anatomic shape of the breast, with less upper pole fullness, and who are appropriate candidates.  Each patient should have a thorough and informed discussion with her cosmetic surgeon prior to making a decision.
