Studying Outcomes With Highly Cohesive Silicone Gel Implants

Maybe you’ve heard of the so-called “gummy bear” implants and even learned about the technology behind them. If you haven’t, you may want to read about the Allergan 410 or the Mentor CPG 300 series breast implants.

A recent study published in Aesthetic Surgery Journal compares results achieved with each breast implant and studies the potential processes that may improve breast augmentation with gummy bear implants.

The authors evaluated data such as:

  • Breast characteristics
  • Patient’s quality of life
  • Patient / Surgeon satisfaction with outcome
  • Adverse events

After breast augmentation with highly cohesive silicone gel implants, doctors followed up on patients 16 to 77 months later. “The outcome data indicate that these devices produce natural-appearing breasts with extremely low aggregate reoperation rate (4.2%), writes study author Mark Jewell M.D. Between the two breast implant manufacturers, the study showed measurable differences in the incidence of visible implant rippling.
