NORMALLY YOU WOULDN’T GO FURRY WHEN GETTING A BRAZILIAN. BUT WITH BRAZILIAN BREAST IMPLANTS, “SUPER FURRY” IS THE SAFEST WAY TO GO.
COSMETIC 1 prefers the foam covered silicone gel implant, originating in Brazil, due to its risk minimisation. This means that complications like capsular contracture, which tend to affect up to 19% of women choosing standard smooth or textured silicone implants, could be reduced to between 1 and 2%.
WHAT IS CAPSULAR CONTRACTURE?
Capsular contracture is one of the most common complications following breast surgery, and often leads to the need for further surgery. Easily explained, this is when the membrane, which grows around all implants, compresses the implant causing it to feel firm or hard, often distorting its shape.
The structure of the “super furry” Brazilian polyurethane foam surface prevents this from happening.
WHAT IS POLYURETHANE?
Polyurethane has been safely implanted in humans for decades, but for other purposes such as pacemakers and blood vessel grafts.
Polyurethane breast implants have actually been used by selected surgeons since 1969 in the U.S, but have only been widely available in Australia since 2008. The reason being that a new implant will always need governmental approval. When it’s first introduced it must be attentively assessed over a long period of time to ensure it is absolutely safe.
WORKS LIKE AN INTERNAL BRA
The fur-looking surface on what is also known as P-URE implants, will better support the breasts from within, reducing the amount of sag over time. The body’s healing tissue grows into the netting on the implant surface and holds it firmly in place. You can almost say the implants act like an internal bra that not only support its own weight, but keeps the breast tissue up as well.
There are many different breast implants on the market, but the “super furry’s” popularity is growing rapidly. With its clear benefits, some might wonder why not every breast augmentation is done with the Brazilian “super furry”. The truth is that many surgeons find them difficult to use. The “super furry” implants require surgical precision, more incisive clinical judgement and more attentive planning. Once positioned they will stick in place, so it needs to be done precisely and correctly from the start.
Dr David Topchian from COSMETIC 1 is one of the most experienced doctors in Melbourne in the use of polyurethane coated silicone gel implants, or the “super furry” Brazilian, and has performed more than 1,000 breast augmentation procedures using these.
