Out With the Old and in With the NEW!
Here at Spring Ridge Plastic Surgery, we are excited about the new generation of Gummy Bear breast implants by Natrelle®. Allergan, the makers of Natrelle® gel implants, is phasing out a number of different styles and profiles of their breast implants and replacing them with their new INSPIRA® Collection. Their rationale is that each woman is unique with regard to her shape, body structure, and where she is in her life. The INSPIRA® Collection features three different gummy gels designed for the look and feel that is most important to the patient.
Gummy describes the consistency of the silicone gel in the Natrelle® Inspira breast implants. The gummy-like gel in the implant sticks together to hold its shape. The reason they are called Gummy Bear implants is that, like a gummy bear, if you slice the implant in half, the cohesive gel inside does not ooze out. Each of the three implant styles in the collection has a different level of gel gumminess or squishiness.
- Natrelle INSPIRA® implants are gummy and the squishiest.
- Natrelle INSPIRA® SoftTouch implants are gummier and less squishy.
- Natrelle INSPIRA® Cohesive implants are the gummiest and least squishy.
The best way to determine which style suits you is to come in for a consultation so that you can try on the Natrelle® implants and get a feel for which one is best for you. Does this mean that because there is a new generation of implants that those of us with the last generation have to rush out to replace our breast implants? Absolutely not! But, if you are interested in changing the size or profile of your existing implants, you may want to come in for a consultation and feel for yourself if the implants from the Natrelle® INSPIRA® Collection are right for you. Afterall, in the years since you first had your breast augmentation, your shape, body structure and stage in life may have changed.
