RALEIGH, NC — 02/28/13 — Dr. Glenn M. Davis, a board-certified Raleigh plastic surgeon, is excited to offer a new anatomically-shaped, silicone gel-filled implant option for his practice’s breast enhancement patients. On February 20, 2013, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved the Natrelle® 410 breast implant, which can be used in a variety of breast procedures including breast augmentation and breast reconstruction. The studies have shown that there is less incidence of capsular contracture or hardening, less rippling, and because the implant maintains its shape, the shape of the breast looks more natural.
Manufactured by Allergan, Inc., Natrelle® 410 silicone breast implants are engineered to complement a woman’s natural curves with an anatomically shaped silhouette. Natrelle® 410 silicone implants are already the #1 surgeon-selected implant in Europe and Canada and have been used successfully in those regions for 20 years. As the first surgeon in the Triangle area to successfully complete the Natrelle® 410 Physician Certification Program, Dr. Davis has been eagerly awaiting the opportunity to offer these innovative implants at Davis Plastic Surgery.
As Dr. Davis explains, “The new style 410 implants from Allergan are the next generation of silicone breast implants. The silicone gel does not flow but rather maintains its shape. This characteristic makes these implants very powerful in terms of creating a natural-looking breast. This is especially appealing for very small women looking for an extremely natural look. I’ve already used them on a very thin patient who desired a very subtle enhancement with very little upper pole fullness. Her results look beautiful.”
Allergan requires surgeons to complete a certification program, which includes instruction on surgical techniques and patient selection, before they are able to offer the Natrelle® 410 shaped gel implant option to their patients. Women interested in seeking a consultation about the Natrelle® 410 breast implant can locate qualified surgeons by visiting the Natrelle® website at www.natrelle.com.
