There are indications that the Food and Drug Administration may soon be approving two more form stable breast implants. Dr. Caroline Glicksman, an expert in the use of these shaped breast implants, says that Both Mentor and Allergan may soon be permitted to distribute their versions of the newest generation of form stable breast implants to plastic surgeons in the United States. Since 2000, only women who were willing to enter into long term clinical trials were able to get these new shaped gel breast implants. With the possible upcoming approvals however, Dr. Glicksman warns that there may be some confusion about both the risks and benefits of these implants.
