KGTV Interviews Dr. Brian Reagan about Newly Approved Breast Implants

It’s affectionately called the “gummy bear” implant.  These newly approved implants are touted as a safer and more natural breast enhancement procedure.  KGTV news reporter Jennifer Jensen, reports.

You could say Jill Weber is a pillar of strength.  The 49 year old Kensington, California woman has been diagnosed with breast cancer three times over the past decade, but continues to wear an ear to ear smile because of something you can’t see.  “He just told me it’s going to feel better and it’s going to look more natural which is what I want,” says Weber.  She’s talking about the new breast implants she got just last week.  Anatomically shaped, silicone filled breast implants.  Jill and her doctor, Brain Reagan MD, a board certified plastic surgeon from the San Diego area, discussed her options for her recent surgery and decided these would best fit her needs.  “These types of implants have recently come out over the last six months or so, are what we call form-stable cohesive gel.  A lot of patients know that them by the term gummy bear,” says Reagan.

Just days ago, Irvine-based Allergan received approval from the food and drug administration to market their version of the gummy bear-like implant — the Natrelle 410. It’s cleared for use in breast enhancements for women 22 years and older and to rebuild breast tissue in women of any age; women like Jill.  “I could have gone the old school way, I probably could have gotten saline if I really wanted to, but I wanted the one that’s going to last the longest, look the best, and I don’t want any more surgery,” says Weber.  With this new implant, perhaps she won’t have to.
