The Natural Look Style 15 Silicone Gel Implant

Posted On: August 30, 2012 Author: The Office of Dr. Stuart Linder Posted In: Breast Implants, Breast Revision, Home

The patient below presents from the Middle East, unhappy with the appearance of her breast implants placed in Israel.  She has cohesive anatomical gummy bear implants that are textured and have rotated.  She wants a smoother, softer appearance to her breasts without the hard texturing and appearance that came with this specific implant.  The patient had the implants removed and replaced with style 15, 339 cc moderate plus gel implants.  She now is two weeks postop.  Notice the softening of the upper poles of her breasts.  There is more of a natural appearance to the breasts.  The superolateral breasts show a more softer appearance as well without the bulging anteriorly.  Style 15 gel implants are used on some patients who have enough tissue coverage to reduce visible rippling which may occur due to the underfill of these implants.  However, the most natural appearing implants usually are associated with lower profile moderate and moderate plus.

In my practice, I reserve the style 15 gel implants to patients such as this that will give a more natural appearance, especially along the superolateral breast.
