One of the most popular options for cosmetic enhancement and improving your body shape and figure is breast augmentation surgery. During breast augmentation surgery, your surgeon will place specially made breast implant into the breast pocket in order to enhance the overall size and shape of the breasts. At our Baltimore plastic surgery office, we have been able to achieve great results through breast augmentation surgery, allowing our patients to look good and feel better than they did before surgery.
What many patients may not know or may not have been aware of is that there are multiple manufacturers for breast implants. Obviously they have to come from somewhere, and there are two primary companies that manufacture breast implants in the United States. Let’s just take a quick second to list these companies off.
The main two companies that manufacture breast implants in the United States are Mentor Corporation and Allergan, which also goes by Natrelle. (Allergan formerly went by the name Inamed Aesthetic and McGhan Medical). Both of these companies are based in Santa Barbara, California. In terms of quality, both Mentor and Allergan make high-quality implants that are safe and effective, so in general the differences between them are minute.
If you have been considering Baltimore breast augmentation surgery for a while now, it’s a good idea to schedule a consultation with our skilled team. During the consultation process, we will be able to provide comprehensive information on breast implant concerns, including suggestions on size of the breast implants, shape of the breast implants, and other factors that would affect your figure and body contour. We’ll also be able to answer any questions that you have in great detail.
