The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the silicone gel breast implants in Cleveland, Ohio. This has been done recently after a thorough scientific review of Mentor Corporation’s and Allergan’s/Natrelle’s (formerly Inamed Corporation) preclinical and clinical studies. The studies were reviewed thoroughly by an advisory panel of outside experts and also by independent scientific bodies. Public comments from women’s groups and stakeholders were also considered by the group. Now all women above 22 years and older, can safely have silicone breast implants.
The extensive studies also examined whether these silicone breast implants were associated with cancer or connective tissue diseases. The conclusion of the studies, which also included the Institute of Medicine’s report, is that there is no direct evidence that the diseases are associated with breast implants. Post-approval studies by Allergan and Mentor will further address the issues. At Cleveland Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Goldschmidt uses the newest silicone breast implants which give a softer and much more natural feeling.
According to Dr. Goldschmidt, silicone breast implants are the most extensively studied devices in medicine. He further added that now there is a better understanding of the rates and types of complications with these implants. According to him, women who have these implants will likely need another breast implant surgery at some point in their lives.
Saline implants are safe and give a natural feeling but they tend to wrinkle and fold much more easily. Some women have complaints about the saline implants that they do not feel or look natural. New silicone gel implants are softer and feel more natural also. Silicone gel implants are beneficial for women who have any of the following conditions:
- Thin chest muscles
- Rippling of the skin with saline breast implants
- Deformities in chest wall
- Thin skin with small, hanging breasts
- Saline implants can be much more round and feel firmer
