While the quality of breast implants continues to improve, as medical devices they can fail and it is important that you know what to do if that happens. Gregory A. Buford, MD, FACS, PCEO has years of experience with breast implants and is honored to work closely with Allergan Medical to guide the direction of implant design as well as patient education. As such, Dr. Buford focuses primarily on silicone gel implants for his breast augmentation procedures.
Allergan Cohesive Silicone Gel implants are referred to as “form stable” because the cohesive nature of the gel filler binds the gel into a more firm compound. In the case that the shell becomes compromised, instead of leaking (as did the earlier implants), this internal implant may hold its shape despite loss of shell support, and prevent a leak from outside the shell (as did the earlier silicone gel breast implants). The result is a more stable implant that has been shown in head-to-head studies to have twice the durability as compared to the saline breast implant.
These are just some of the reasons that Gregory A. Buford, MD, FACS, PCEO exclusively uses Allergan breast implants. Additionally, their customer service is excellent and the company stands not only behind its doctors and their patients, they also stand behind their products. Allergan offers a free 10 year warranty for its Natrelle® Gel breast implants. More information on the ConfidencePlus® Warranty Program may be found in the brochure shown below.
