Motiva Breast Implants

Motiva Breast Implants

Breast enlargement remains the most popular cosmetic procedure worldwide. According to BAAPS, there were about 6700 boob job procedures performed in the UK by BAAPS surgeons. Among the various options available, Motiva breast implants have rapidly gained attention for their innovative technology and impressive safety profile.

Understanding Motiva Breast Implants

Motiva implants are manufactured by Establishment Labs, a global medical technology company specializing in aesthetic and reconstructive products. They are produced in Columbia at their facilities based there. Motiva implants incorporate several advanced features designed to try and improve safety and aesthetic outcomes.

Product Features:

  • Ergonomix® Technology: Motiva implants are filled with a special form of silicone gel that behaves like a liquid while retaining the properties of a solid when at rest. This allows the implant to mimic the natural movement of breast tissue, providing a more natural look and feel.
  • SmoothSilk®/SilkSurface®: This is an advanced implant shell surface technology achieved through a 3D nanotechnology imprinting process that avoids the use of foreign materials like salt or sugar, potentially reducing the risk of inflammation and complications.

Safety and Innovation

Safety is a paramount concern in the development and utilization of any breast implants. Motiva has introduced several innovations aimed at enhancing safety and reducing complications.

FDA Clinical Trials:

Motiva implants are currently undergoing rigorous clinical trials in the United States as part of the process to obtain FDA approval. Preliminary data from these studies and international usage suggest a lower rate of complications such as capsular contracture and implant rupture compared to older generations of implants.

CE Mark and International Standards:

Motiva implants have received the CE mark, indicating conformity with health, safety, and environmental protection standards for products sold within the European Economic Area.

Scientific Evidence and Clinical Outcomes

A growing body of research supports the effectiveness and safety of Motiva implants. Several peer-reviewed studies have highlighted their high performance in key areas:

Reduced Complication Rates:

Research indicates that Motiva implants have lower incidence of capsular contracture and late seromas compared to traditional implants. These complications are among the most common reasons for reoperation after breast augmentation.

High Patient Satisfaction:

Studies document high satisfaction rates among patients who have chosen Motiva implants, citing improved breast aesthetics, feel, and overall self-confidence post-surgery.

Aesthetic Outcomes

The choice of breast implants plays a crucial role in the aesthetic outcomes of breast augmentation surgery. Motiva’s range of implants offers versatility to both the patient and the surgeon:

Variety of Shapes and Sizes:

Motiva provides a wide range of implant sizes and profiles, including their Ergonomix® option, which adapts to the patient's posture and movements, creating a more natural appearance whether lying down or standing up.

Q Inside Safety Technology™:

Some Motiva implants incorporate a unique RFID microtransponder that provides device-specific data accessible through a handheld reader, allowing healthcare providers to access implant information non-invasively.

Complications

There have been reports of some issues with the Motiva implants that include malposition such as implant flipping or bottoming out. This is likely to be due to the almost smooth surface of the implant.

Conclusion

Motiva breast implants have shown some good initial safety data although further longer term evaluation is required. They are not yet approved by the FDA and undergoing further evaluation. Due to this reason, Mr Nassab does not routinely use the Motiva implants but can if a patient specifically requests them.
