New Implant Choices Offer Patients More Variety

In early 2017, the FDA approved a new line of implants produced by Allergan. NATRELLE INSPIRA® SoftTouch breast implants join the ever expanding family of products offered by Allergan. These new implant options come with one important thing for patients—choices. With more sizes, shapes, textures, and designs, you have a wider variety of options, which can ensure that you gain the most natural-looking breast augmentation possible.

NATRELLE INSPIRA® SoftTouch Implants

NATRELLE INSPIRA® SoftTouch is the most recent update in a long line of NATRELLE® implants offering various degrees of gel firmness and form stability. These implants are FDA approved for women over 22 years of age and they offer patients medium firmness. The SoftTouch joins other implants like Natrelle INSPIRA® for increased fullness, Natrelle® Classic for a traditional round look, and the Natrelle® 410 for shaped fullness.

Silicone breast implantChoosing Your Ideal Implant

An increase in implant options means a more tailored result for you. However, your implant type isn’t the only factor to consider when choosing an ideal implant. Size, projection, and placement will affect the final look and feel of your breasts. Making these decisions is a process best done with a board-certified plastic surgeon during your consultation.

Undergoing a Consultation

During your consultation, several physical factors are evaluated, which can impact the best implant for you. Additionally, you will discuss your aesthetic goals with your surgeon. We recommend having a detailed idea of what you want your breasts to look and feel like, rather than simply having a size goal in mind. Common factors discussed during your consultation include:

  • Chest width

  • Breast density

  • Activity levels

  • Ideal breast shape

  • Medical history
