If you’re considering implants.  If not, you may want to read up on the Natrelle 410 or the Mentor CPG 300 series breast implants.

A recent study published in Aesthetic Surgery Journal compares the outcomes of both breast implants and studies the processes that could improve breast augmentation with the new prosthetics.

The authors evaluated data such as:

  • Breast characteristics
  • Patient’s quality of life
  • Patient and 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.
