The team at Boulder Plastic Surgery is pleased to announce that the FDA has recently approved a new form-stable breast implant called MemoryShape. Once known as Mentor’s CPG and now renamed to note their special chemical makeup, MemoryShape breast implants come after the FDA approval of two other kinds of breast implants: the Allergan’s Natrelle 410 in February 2013 and Sientra’s form-stable implants in March 2012. These approvals reflect the proven safety and effectiveness of these breast implants, and the chemical advancements in MemoryShape implants have set a new standard.
About MemoryShape Breast Implants
Unlike other forms of breast implants, MemoryShape Breast Implants are chemically constructed of cross-linking silicone gel. The strong chemical bonds in the MemoryShape Breast Implant sequence create a silicone gel that is more form-stable, meaning that it is both firmer and more cohesive than many other breast implants on the market. The effects of MemoryShape’s state-of-the-art chemical makeup will be ideal for patients, as these unique breast implants provide a full shape while maintaining a natural feel.
The approval of MemoryShape Breast Implants along with two other major implants by the FDA in the past year show just how safe these breast implants are. The process for the approval of MemoryShape involved 6 years of data from 955 women, proving that the implants are safe and effective over time. Of course, there are always some risks involved with any surgery, but the number of reported negative effects from breast implants continue to decrease with advancements such as MemoryShape. In very rare circumstances, patients may experience implant asymmetry, capsular contracture, the need for another operation, wrinkling, or infection. The MemoryShape Breast Implants, as well as the other FDA approved implants, have reduced these risks greatly in recent years.
