Body Shaping Plastic Surgery

Spring is in the air, and there is no better time to get in shape. The gyms are full and the winter pounds are being shed. While diet and exercise can tighten muscles and reduce fat, there are some problems that require direct intervention. Loose skin will not shrink with dieting. There is no exercise to fill deflated breasts, and disproportionate fat won’t sculpt itself. Dr. Mele will present the latest plastic surgery techniques designed to compliment your hard work.

The Newest Breast Implant Technology – Allergan 410’s

The show will also feature the newest Breast Implants available from Allergan. Allergan’s 410 Breast Implant is form-stable, shaped, textured and filled with the highest strength silicone gel available in an FDA approved Breast Implant. The implant has been available outside the United States for over a decade. FDA approval was obtained after the review of a seven-year premarket approval study. During the study, the 410 Silicone Breast Implants performed well. Perhaps most significantly, during the 7 years of the study, there was a 0% incidence of gel migration. The San Francisco Plastic Surgery Blog has more information here: Allegan Natrelle 410 Breast Implants get FDA Approval.

EDIT: These implants were withdrawn from the market in 2019 due to the surface texture’s association with a rare lymphoma.

Tummy Tucks and Mommy Makeovers

Breast Augmentation is just one of the body shaping techniques featured. Body contouring with Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck) will also be reviewed. The Tummy Tuck can remove lower abdominal fat and stretch marks, tighten the abdominal muscles and firm up loose redundant abdominal skin. Crunches can strengthen the rectus abdominus muscles, but they cannot repair an over stretched muscle. After pregnancy, or after massive weight loss, the fascia (a tough layer that surrounds and supports the muscle) stretches out and cannot recoil. The result is a round lower belly, despite strong muscles. When associated with loose skin, this is the situation the Abdominoplasty was made for.
