Planning a Breast Augmentation? Consider Going GummyUpdated December 13, 2017
If you are considering getting breast implants in Oregon, “going gummy“ could be a great option. You’ve probably heard of “gummy bear” breast implants. The nickname reflects the consistency of the silicone gel in Natrelle INSPIRA® Cohesive breast implants, which is similar to the candy that holds its shape even when cut in half.
For 13 years, Dr. Mark Jewell has been involved with the FDA pivotal studies testing the safety and efficacy of the highly cohesive gel implants. The Natrelle INSPIRA cohesive implants — the most recent generation of implants introduced by the manufacturer — creates customized results for each patient and specifically is ideal for increased upper pole fullness and a soft feel. About 75% of women surveyed preferred the look of increased fullness of Natrelle INSPIRA versus Natrelle Classic Round Gel implants.
Dr. Mark Jewell, a board-certified plastic surgeon in Eugene, is one of the world’s most distinguished authorities on breast implants. He’s devoted much of his career to advances in the plastic surgery field, and specifically has been involved in breast implant research. In 2015, Dr. Jewell became only the 5th individual in the nearly 50-year history of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery to be given the Leadership Award. He pioneered the “14 Steps of Precaution” which diminishes the risk of infection and breast implant-associated ALCL. Plastic surgeons everywhere look to him as a model of what every plastic surgeon should be.
Dr. Jewell believes Inspira’s gummy implant represents a significant advance for women interested in producing upper breast fullness. He is proud to provide this option for his patients, along with a variety of other round and shaped implants. At Dr. Jewell’s practice, 90% of breast augmentation patients choose the Natrelle INSPIRA gel implants over other options because Dr. Jewell offers a large number of gummy implants for patients to truly customize their results.
Dr. Jewell emphasizes the fact that there is no “one-size-fits-all” approach for breast augmentation. With each of his patients, he creates a unique surgical plan incorporating the patient’s needs and desires.
