Board-certified Alexandria, Virginia, plastic surgeon Dr. Eric Desman and the knowledgeable team at The Virginia Center for Plastic Surgery are proud to offer patients these versatile and durable highly cohesive gel breast implants. Your personal consultation with Dr. Desman will determine if you’re a candidate for breast augmentation and whether the new Natrelle 410 breast implants are the best option for your unique body type and aesthetic goals.
What are highly cohesive gel Breast Implants?
Until recently, the only types of breast implants available in the United States were saline-based and silicone-based. The new Natrelle 410 Shaped Gel breast implants feature highly cohesive silicone gel that earned them the “gummy bear implants” nickname.
This gel provides superior shape retention to previous silicone breast implants and is encased in a silicone shell that mirrors the silhouette and sensation of natural breasts. Available for years in Europe and Canada, Natrelle 410 gummy bear gel breast implants are chosen 2 to 1 by patients who prefer the realistic contours, profile and feel of the Natrelle 410 Shaped Gel implants over other breast implant types; these highly cohesive gel breast implants also have a patient satisfaction rate of nearly 97 percent after seven years of wear.
Benefits of highly cohesive gel Implants
The Natrelle 410 Shaped Gel breast implants are available in a wide array of sizes to perfectly complement your frame and achieve your desired results. For additional information about breast implant sizes, please see our Choosing the Right Size Breast Implants page.
Durability and safety are two more advantages of the Natrelle 410 Shaped Gel breast implants. The cohesive silicone gel is designed to maintain shape and stay in place over time, and the Natrelle 410 Shaped Gel implants have demonstrated a wrinkling and rippling rate of less than 1 percent over seven years when used as the primary breast augmentation implants.
The Natrelle 410 Shaped Gel implants also have a 69 percent lower rate of capsular contracture than round silicone breast implants at six years. Capsular contracture is a tightening of scar tissue around breast implants that can cause the breasts to harden, and it is one of the leading causes of the need for breast implant revision.
