Poughkeepsie Plastic Surgeons Have The Latest “Gummy Bear” Implants

Ask us about the Natrelle 410 implants. Designed for women 22 years of age or older, they can also be used in breast reconstruction for women less than 22-year-old for cases of cancer reconstruction, trauma or severe breast asymmetry.

The benefit of “gummy bear” implants to our Poughkeepsie area plastic surgery patients is that these implants mimic the natural slope of the breast and the texture is much more like natural breast tissue compared with saline or other gel-filled implants. However, we also offer the Sientra and Mentor “gummy bear” implants and all are very popular with our Hudson Valley breast augmentation patients. The cost is exactly the same among these three gummy bear implants. When our patients have their private cosmetic surgery consultation, we review all the implant options to help each woman choose the breast implant that’s right for her. It’s exciting that we have so many options now for size, projection and texture!

The FDA approval of the latest Natrelle 410 implant was based on 7 years of data collected from the use of the breast implants in over 900 women across the US. A small number of women had complications such as capsular contracture (tightening of the pocket around the implant) or infection, which is similar to problems experienced with other implants.
