Recently I went to Sweden to observe the practice of Dr Charles Randquist. Dr Randquist has extensive experience with form stable breast implants – Mentor’s CPG implants and Allergans 410 implants – which are not currently available in the USA except under study conditions. These implants are shaped – with a sloping upper pole . We used to have shaped implants in the United States but the FDA did not include them in the approval process along with round implants so they were taken off the market in the States five years ago. I am hopeful that soon we will have shaped implants as I think especially for the reconstruction patient they are a valuable tool.
