Recently, an anatomic breast implant filled with soft cohesive silicone gel was introduced by Mentor Medical Systems onto the European market. This study reports the early experience of a single surgeon with this implant. All patients who received a Contour Profile Gel (CPG) implant from March 2001 to October 2002 were studied. Patient satisfaction with breast shape and consistency was assessed using linear analogue scales with a maximum score of 10. Thirty-five patients received CPG implants… 
Indications for Extra Full Projection Anatomical Cohesive Silicone Gel Implants in Cosmetic and Reconstructive Breast Surgery
TLDR
The novel EFP implant was successfully used to address specific challenges in cosmetic and reconstructive breast surgery, including large skin envelopes in breast augmentation patients declining mastopexy, complicated implant exchanges, and suboptimal prosthetic breast reconstructions.
Immediate Direct-To-Implant Breast Reconstruction Using Anatomical Implants
TLDR
By using anatomic breast implants in breast reconstruction, the Natrelle Style 410 form-stable anatomically shaped cohesive silicone gel-filled breast implant is suitable for breast reconstruction and achieves satisfactory results with aesthetics better than those obtained with round breast implants.
Breast Implant Stability in the Subfascial Plane and the New Shaped Silicone Gel Breast Implants

TLDR
The anatomic form-stable silicone gel breast implants, when placed subfascially, improve common complications such as capsular contracture and implant rupture with improved aesthetic outcomes and patient satisfaction.
A Preliminary Report with Anatomical Soft Cohesive Gel Implant in Augmentation mammoplasty in Korean Women
TLDR
It can be seen that anatomical implant is suitable for Korean female patients who have small breast, mild ptotic breast and constricted lower pole, given that anatomical implants proved excellent results in this studies.
Fat Graft in Composite Breast Augmentation with Round Implant: A New Concept for Breast Reshaping
TLDR
The observations show that the combination of high-profile round implants and fat grafting in aesthetic breast augmentation can improve the aesthetic outcome and patient satisfaction as with anatomical implants eliminating the risk of implant rotation.
A prospective study of 708 form-stable silicone gel breast implants.
TLDR
This study demonstrates that form-stable silicone gel breast implants are safe and have a complication profile similar to other models of silicone breast implants, with a lower CC rate and a decreased incidence of wrinkling compared to fourth-generation silicone gel implants.
Fat Graft in Composite Breast Augmentation with Round Implants: A New Concept for Breast Reshaping
TLDR
The observations show that the combination of high-profile round implants and fat grafting in aesthetic breast augmentation can improve the aesthetic outcome and patient satisfaction as with anatomical implants eliminating the risk of implant rotation.
Experience with the Mentor Contour Profile Becker-35 expandable implants in reconstructive breast surgery.
TLDR
The Becker-35 expander was successfully used for single-stage prosthetic breast reconstruction with an incidence of early complications comparable to alternative prostheses.
Assessing the augmented breast: a blinded study comparing round and anatomical form-stable implants.
TLDR
No significant difference (P > .05) in the general and specific cosmetic points between round and anatomical implants was demonstrated; both techniques seem to yield good cosmetic results.
Soft cohesive silicone gel breast prostheses: a comparative prospective study of aesthetic results versus lower cohesivity silicone gel prostheses.
TLDR
The soft cohesive prostheses offered better overall results than the lower cohesivity silicone prostheses, even if a longer term follow-up should be advised, although the overall satisfaction degree was higher for soft cohesive implants.

Mammary Augmentation by Cohesive Silicone Gel Implants with Anatomic Shape: Technical Considerations
TLDR
This paper gives detailed description of the preoperative preparations, the operation step-by-step, and the postoperative care for patients with the cohesive gel implants and is based on the four years experience with 440 patients.
Silicone Gel–Filled Breast Implant Integrity: A Retrospective Review of 478 Consecutively Explanted Implants
TLDR
A retrospective case note review of explanted silicone breast implants was performed, finding no evidence that the currently used textured silicone gel breast implants are subject to the same loss of integrity as previous examples of these devices.
Breast Augmentation: Choosing the Optimal Incision, Implant, and Pocket Plane
  • D. Hidalgo
  • Medicine
    Plastic and reconstructive surgery
  • 2000
TLDR
A retrospective study of 220 patients was performed to review surgical design in breast augmentation, studying incision site, implant variables, and pocket plane selection for influence on aesthetic results in both primary and secondary cases.
Patient acceptance of adequately filled breast implants using the tilt test.
  • J. Tebbetts
  • Medicine

  • 2000
TLDR
If patients will accept more firmness with an adequatelyfilled implant, regardless of the filler material, surgeons might worry less about recommending an adequately filled implant to patients, and manufacturers might feel more comfortable producing adequately filled implants and redefining fill volumes for underfilled implants.
A silicone implant filled with cohesive gel: advantages and disadvantages
TLDR
The experience with an anatomically-shaped implant, which is filled with a special cohesive silicone gel, suggests that this type of implant is safe and achieves satisfactory results in breast augmentation.
Textured or smooth implants for breast augmentation? Three year follow-up of a prospective randomised controlled trial.
TLDR
The effect of textured implants in reducing capsular contracture in augmentation mammaplasty found at one year is maintained at three years, and it is suggested that it may be long lasting.
Tendency to capsular contracture around smooth and textured gel-filled silicone mammary implants: a five-year follow-up.
TLDR
Comparisons between the 1-year and 5-year tonometric results of the 24 breasts that still had the original textured implants showed that after 5 years, a small but statistically significant increase in hardness had occurred compared with that after 1 year.
Silicone breast implant rupture: common/serious complication?
TLDR
It is concluded that rupture of breast implants is not as uncommon as hitherto thought and is strongly correlated with their in situ duration and implant gel leakage was not associated with serious systemic effects in this study.
A clinical comparison of the tendency to capsular contracture between smooth and textured gel-filled silicone mammary implants.
The aim of this prospective, controlled clinical investigation was to find out if there is a difference in the capsular contracture rate between silicone implants with a smooth or textured surface as
The Postoperative Shape of Round and Teardrop Saline-filled Breast Implants
TLDR
There is no basis for the claim that teardrop implants provide a more natural appearance because the appearance of the breasts with patients upright is similar for the 2 implant types.
