Dr. Kind travels this week to Santiago, Chile to help introduce SERIscaffold, a new product used in breast surgery, to South American plastic surgeons. Dr. Kind was invited by Allergan, Inc., to present his experience with this new implant. The meeting will include presentations and demonstrations in the lab and the operating room. Already FDA approved, SERIscaffold appears to offer many advantages to patients who require soft-tissue support in both reconstructive and cosmetic surgery.

FDA approves new silicone gel-filled breast implant
Dr. Kind and Dr. Chang are now certified to use the newest silicone gel implants made by Allergan. The Natrelle 410 implants have been referred to as “gummy bear” implants because of they contain a highly cohesive silicone gel. These shaped implants have a more natural contour and can be used for either augmentation or reconstruction. Not everyone, however, is a candidate for these implants . It is important to discuss this with your doctor.
