If you are considering breast augmentation, especially if you are considering getting silicone implants, having a silent rupture might be one of your concerns.
Traditional silicone breast implants of the past have always had the potential of an undetected rupture unless picked up on a mammogram, ultrasound, or MRI. A solid silicone gel breast implant is a solution that provides zero silicone leakage, giving you greater piece of mind!
This solid silicone gel is found in the latest advancement in breast augmentation: the Cohesive Gel Implant. This implant is known as the “gummy bear” implant because of its solid, gummy-like texture and contains no liquid.
Only a few doctors were chosen to participate in the studies for the Gummy Bear Breast Implant studies and Dr. Tim Love of Oklahoma City was one of those doctors. Dr. Tim R. Love, MD was invited to participate in clinical research studies of Cohesive Gel implants by both major breast implant manufacturers, Allergan and Mentor.
These studies sought Dr. Tim R. Love, MD’s input in collecting information which was submitted to the FDA confirming the safe and unique benefits of Cohesive Gel breast implants. Dr. Tim R. Love, MD’s expertise in breast enhancement surgery were also recognized by his previous sponsorship of four other groundbreaking studies submitted to the FDA.
Allergan’s CORE study followed patients for 10 years following surgery and it was instrumental in the return of silicone to the market for unrestricted use. Dr. Tim R. Love, MD was the single largest contributor to this study. Dr. Tim R. Love, MD hopes to contribute design improvements to the next generation of Cohesive Gel Implants as well.
