According to data released by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons, 2012 was a banner year for breast implants. Last year, breast augmentations were the most popular plastic surgery procedures in the U.S., with more than 330,000 women going under the knife to perfect their bosoms. Of these procedures, 72% of patients received silicone gel implants while 28% chose saline-filled implants.
What Will This Year Bring?
Last month, the FDA approved a new kind of implant known as the Allergan 410 form-stable, which is a shaped breast implant that’s also known as the “Gummy Bear Implant” because of its firm composition.
Doctors nationwide have been waiting patiently for over 10 years for this type of implant to be released and suspect that the number of women receiving this type of implant during 2013 will skyrocket.
There is another type of innovative implant on the horizon called the Ideal Implant which is currently being approved by the FDA. This implant is a saline implant which has internal chambers that enable salt water to flow more evenly with movement, lessening wrinkles that can be a big complaint for some patients.
Some doctors also consider the future of breast enhancement surgery to be found in stem cell research.
