A silicone implant filled with cohesive gel: advantages and disadvantages This article presents our experience with an anatomically-shaped implant, which is filled with a special cohesive silicone gel. From 1993 through 1996, 132 women underwent breast augmentation. The indications were simple aplasia/hypoplasia (40), unsatisfatory appearance of previous prosthesis (58), and post-mastectomy deformity of the breast (34). Results and complications are reviewed.

Abstract

This article presents our experience with an anatomically-shaped implant, which is filled with a special cohesive silicone gel. From 1993 through 1996, 132 women underwent breast augmentation. The indications were simple aplasia/hypoplasia (40), unsatisfatory appearance of previous prosthesis (58), and post-mastectomy deformity of the breast (34). Results and complications are reviewed. The findings suggest that this type of implant is safe and achieves satisfactory results in breast augmentation.
