LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - Apr 17, 2013) - Drs. W. Tracy Hankins and Samuel M. Sohn perform over 1000 breast augmentation procedures each year at their Las Vegas plastic surgery practice. Drs. Hankins and Sohn believe with significant experience comes outstanding results, and their silicone breast implant of choice is the innovative Natrelle® style 410.

According to Dr. Sohn, Natrelle® style 410 implants are the most cohesive implants available on the market. These innovatively styled implants allow Drs. Hankins and Sohn to not only enlarge but also shape each breast, providing a more personal and individualized look for their patients undergoing breast augmentation.

The Natrelle® style 410 implants are a subset of a larger group of implants colloquially termed "gummy bear" implants. Dr. Sohn notes that the term, while not scientific, refers to the high degree of cohesiveness or firmness of the silicone gel used in the makeup of the Natrelle style 410 implant.

One of the major benefits of the Natrelle® style 410 implants is the innovative shape. Because these cohesive shaped implants firmly hold their distribution of silicone, the Natrelle® style 410 implants can improve upper pole volume and lend a softer, gentler slope to the breast. These implants are designed to be fuller on the bottom, less full on top, and keep their position much better than traditional implants.

Over the past decade, the Natrelle® style 410 implants have yielded stable, consistent results. Due to their unique design, there is a decreased chance for deformity and wrinkling with the implant -- particularly in the upper portion of the breast -- in comparison to more traditional designs. Dr. Sohn notes that these implants also have a low probability of contracture (the hardening of the breast).

Since Hankins & Sohn Plastic Surgery is one of the largest users of breast implants in the United States, Drs. Hankins and Sohn believe it is important to always offer their patients the most up to date technology and techniques. As board-certified Las Vegas plastic surgeons, they strive to achieve the best surgical result possible for their patients. Drs. Hankins and Sohn recommend that women considering breast augmentation consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon to determine if the Natrelle® style 410 implants are the best choice for them.
