Outcomes Utilizing Inspira Implants in Primary Aesthetic and Reconstructive Surgery

I recently had an article published in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery  about using silicone implants for breast reconstruction and breast augmentation.  One of my favorite parts about being a plastic surgeon is getting to use and learn about new technology, which is why I was excited to talk about the latest advances in silicone breast implants for this article. With the most recent generation of silicone implants (“gummy” implants), the silicone is more cohesive, which means that the silicone stays together better, with less concern that the silicone will rupture and potentially spread. It also means that they hold their shape and projection better when placed in the breast, which is particularly important for breast reconstruction when the breast tissue is no longer there to provide shape. One misconception about “gummy” implants is that they are very firm, but actually they can feel fairly soft and natural in the body, even with the increased “gumminess”!
