Breast Augmentation With Anatomical Cohesive Gel Implants: The World's Largest Current Experience

P Hedén et al. Clin Plast Surg.


Anatomic cohesive silicone gel implants in breast augmentations require a considerably different technique compared with standard round implants. If the dimensions and proportions of the thorax and breast and thus the prerequisite for different implant shapes are evaluated adequately, this newer technique can lead to highly predictable results with a high degree of patient satisfaction.
