Ergonomic prostheses represent a revolution in the world of breast augmentation, stalled since about 20 years ago when appeared the anatomical prosthesis.

ergonomic prothesis

Its main advantages lie at deck level and matrix of the prosthesis. As for the first, due to its surface more uniform texturing and without cavities to other types of prosthesis, allows a scraping lower in the surrounding tissue, so that the rate of occurrence of capsular contracture, double capsules and seromas late has It proved very lower than other prostheses with greater texturing. This surface does not adhere to surrounding tissues, which allows the implant to suit the natural movements eliminating the problems of abrasion, which are the origin of the occurrence of subsequent problems. They have an inner layer created as a barrier to prevent the spread of the gel is externally displayed on the implant.


They are filled implants 100% that when implanted in the form of breasts.


The cohesiveness of silicone gel matrix composed of the prosthesis determines the "hardness" of it and maintaining its shape; the higher the rate of gel cohesiveness, less the shape of the prosthesis is altered when the position of the breast is changed. In addition, the lower cohesiveness gel that consist makes owning a softer touch endows breast implanted in a more natural, both the appearance and the feel and mobility.


Another advantage of this reason is that, although its initial shape is round, the bottom cohesiveness of the gel allows a variation of it depending on the position of the breast: if the patient is standing the prosthesis tends to adopt a "more anatomical "if it is lying, tends to be distributed more laterally, while the traditional image of excessive projection of prostheses gel high cohesiveness.


However, they are not intended for all patients; in the case of patients desiring increased padding in the upper pole or requiring larger stuffing lower pole by ptosis, constricted lower pole or tuberous breasts, will be most useful other prosthesis.


It is very common that when a patient comes to looking for a replacement prosthesis for wanting to change the shape or volume, or because there was a break, do not know give information about the type of prosthesis he wears, which is very useful for the plastic surgeon .


Another distinguishing feature of the ergonomic coming prosthesis is provided with a microchip embedded in the gel (Q Inside Safety Technology) that allows the correct identification of the prosthesis. This lets us know the characteristics of the prosthesis implanted in the consultation; for example, in the case that patients straying typical product cards or report operating room is not necessary you have to take it outside to see during surgery, as have the microchip reader.
