The Status of “Gummy Bear” Implants

Just went to a meeting with the Vice President of sales for Allergan (breast implants) and i asked him about the status of the cohesive gel implants. i had just returned from a meeting in Prague and got to see four different manufacturers of these devices displaying their wares. They have been making them softer and now feel almost as good as the traditional silicon gel implants. He assured me (hopefully0 that FDA approval is just around the corner… probably this year. So we have to wait a little longer to add these devices to our armamentarium.
