As one of the most popular “gummy bear” implants on the market, the Allergan Natrelle Style 410 breast implant offers women many advantages compared to traditional silicone and saline implants. Approved by the FDA earlier this year, the Allergan Style 410 implant comes in 12 different shapes with varying volumes. Four different projections as well as three choices of height give patients a variety of options.
What Are Gummy Bear Implants?
These natural looking breast implants were designed with a teardrop shape that is thicker at the bottom and tapers at the top. To achieve and maintain this shape, a firmer silicone than is commonly found in round implants must be used. When gummy bear implants such as the Allergan Natrelle Style 410 are cut in half, the gel still keeps its shape.
Gummy bear implants use the same ingredients as less cohesive silicone gel implants. The difference is that it has added “cross-linker” for increased firmness. This type of implant is cured and uses a different drying process than typical silicone gel implants.
Benefits of the Allergen Natrelle Style 410 Breast Implant
One of the most important elements of these Allergan breast implants is the shell, or Biocell. It is remarkably durable to substantially diminish the chance of breakage, and features an extra layer that minimizes microscopic gel diffusion. The shell’s rough texture helps prevent rotation and keeps the implant in the correct position.
