Abstract. Three hundred and eighty patients over a 15-year period who received pre-filled carboxy-methyl cellulose were analyzed retrospectively. Laboratory and surgical experience with these prostheses indicate that there is a role in augmentation mammaplasty and reconstruction for implants containing this nontoxic, viscoelastic, biodegradable filling material.
