Form stable implants from both Allergan and Mentor are now on the market. What is so new about these implants you might ask. Both companies have been striving to release these implants for years after much clinical study. The advantage is that they cannot leak and they show less ripples, something of great importance in patients with very thin tissues. The negatives as that they will not move much as they are textured so they will stick to the tissues. Secondly is that they will require slightly larger incisions to have them placed. Not every needs them or would want them but it just adds a new option for some patients whose prior implant choices were not ideal for their bodies.
