Silicone Breast Implants Approved by FDA
In November 2006, the FDA approved silicone breast implants for breast augmentation and in reconstruction. These silicone gel filled breast implants were found (after years of rigorous testing) to be safe and not cause autoimmune diseases or cancers. Silicone gel breast implants are available as well as saline filled breast implants for a variety of breast surgery; including augmentation, mastopexy (breast lift) and reconstruction after mastectomy. There is no longer the stringent paperwork or complicated process for using silicone gel breast implants. Call our office for more details.
