Breast augmentation, revision and reconstructive surgery is unique.
This individuality demands a broad range of breast implants with different shapes, projections, heights & textures to achieve a desired aesthetic appearance.
Allergan Inc., a U.S. based company manufacture a range of health and beauty products including breast implants; they are also well known for their dermal filler range Juvéderm Ultra. Allergan's collection of breast implants, The Natrelle Collection, is available in over 600 different variations, providing surgeons and patients with a vast range of implant and augmentation options in a range of shapes, sizes, heights and projections. Natrelle implants are also approved by the U.S. FDA.
INTRASHIEL™ Barrier Technology
Natrelle's implants are also manufactured with a unique barrier technology design that offers an extra layer of protection, minimizing the chance of rupture and gel diffusion. The patented INTRASHIEL™ Barrier Technology is an additional barrier layer that sits underneath several layers of high performance elastomer, designed to improve shell integrity.
Natrelle implants can be manufactured with a smooth outer shell or a textured outer shell. BIOCELL™, Natrelle's patented textured shell, was designed to give superior tissue adherence. In turn, this ensures that the implant maintains the proper position in the breast. In addition, clinical trials have also shown that the BIOCELL texturisation is effective in reducing the incidence of capsular contraction and implant rotation.

Implant Types and Sizes
Implants are available from Mentor with both smooth and Siltex® textured outer shells and in a variety of different profiles and sizes, as well as in round or anatomical contoured styles.
Contoured or 'tear drop' implants and round implants are available in a variety of shapes according to two differing parameters, known as implant height and implant profile or projection. The height refers to the size and shape of the implant footprint, i.e. the section that sits against the chest itself once implanted. This choice will vary according to how wide or narrow your chest is. The profile or projection refers to how far outwards the 'drop' on the tear comes away from the chest, as a natural breast would or how far forward the round implant projects. The actual cup size or volume can then be decided on once the anatomical shape has been established.
