Richmond Plastic Surgeon Offers Innovative “Gummy Bear” Breast Implants
Dr. Neil J. Zemmel of Richmond Aesthetic Surgery offers his patients the teardrop-shaped Natrelle 410 breast implants for lower postoperative risks and often a more natural result.
Richmond, VA — Neil J. Zemmel, MD has recently completed advanced breast surgery training under Dr. Charles Randquist of Stockholm, Sweden, a plastic surgeon known for his excellent results using Natrelle® 410 shaped textured implants. According to Dr. Zemmel, the main purpose of this continuing education endeavor was to learn the specialized techniques of using the Natrelle® 410 style of breast implants. After participating in a live surgery with Dr. Randquist, the Richmond plastic surgeon says that he can bring skills back to his private Virginia plastic surgery practice to “provide [his] patients with the most gentle surgery, ultimately leading to less bruising, swelling, and much quicker recovery.” Dr. Zemmel is one of the few surgeons to offer Natrelle® 410 breast implants for cosmetic purposes in the Richmond region.
When women are considering breast augmentation, Dr. Zemmel reviews the wide range of options available so each surgery can be customized to meet the individual’s unique needs. Although there are many types of breast implants available, the board-certified plastic surgeon highlights that the Natrelle® 410 has some distinct advantages. Often referred to as the “gummy bear” implant, Dr. Zemmel says the Natrelle® 410 is made of a highly cohesive silicone filler material that is teardrop-shaped like an anatomically correct breast for exceptionally natural results. Due to the unique shape and textured surface, he highlights that patients typically do not experience a loss of upper pole fullness. The implant also involves a higher cross-linking in its silicone material, which Dr. Zemmel explains can preserve the contour of the breast while minimizing the risk of shifting or rippling. As an added benefit, most of Dr. Zemmel’s breast augmentation patients who choose Natrelle® 410 implants experience lower rates of capsular contracture and implant rupture.
According to Dr. Zemmel’s office, there are “12 different [Natrelle® 410] models of varying heights, widths, and projections to suit your unique body structure, frame, and goals.” Using state-of-the-art VECTRA® 3-D Imaging technology, women can virtually “try on” different implants, allowing his patients to make well-informed decisions. Many of Dr. Zemmel’s patients ultimately choose the Natrelle® 410 because of the unique advantages these breast implants can provide in addition to beautiful, natural-looking results.
