    Why Is Motiva Implants® a Good Choice for Women Considering Breast Augmentation?

Moreover, Motiva Implants® have features that can help with said goals. 

    Breast augmentation is a momentous chapter for a woman simply because it’s a moving forward journey of embracing who they wanted to be and taking pride in being who they are. Having the right implants would not only give them an increased breast projection but will enable them to move freely without the feeling of rippling effect coming from their breast implants.

    However, choosing the right breast implant would be tricky and challenging for some women because of the wide variety of brands of breast implants that is currently available in the Malaysian market. Did you know Motiva Implants® is one of the brands that is currently registered and approved by the medical authorities in Malaysia?

    Some Malaysian and foreign women are considering Motiva Implants® simply because it satisfies their expectation when it comes to the breasts’ aesthetic projection including its many safety features. One of the reasons why it’s now gaining popularity.

    As for its features, the ProgressiveGel Ultima® is a specialized silicone gel that assists with the shape and feel of the implants. It has a high viscosity, meaning it completely lessens the effects of rippling. It also fills and stabilizes the implants. Thus, it aids the patients for the correction of sagging or any deformity of their breasts.

    Motiva Ergonomix® is the 6th generation of breast implants by Establishment Labs®. This kind of breast implant is designed to naturally move with your body. They applied the ProgressiveGel Ultima® that allows the implants to change in different shapes by following the natural movement of the breast. What makes it so unique is that when you’re in an upright position the breast implant takes the form of a tear-drop shape while it instantly transforms in a round form when you’re in a laying position.

    Lastly, the Motiva Qid® Technology is a microtransponder approved by the FDA for human use. It also has a CE-Mark for use in a breast implant. It comprises a biocompatible RFID (passive radio-frequency identification) microtransponder for post-implant, which can be waved over the breast region and read by a personal handheld reader (Motiva Qid® Reader). This would allow surgeons to instantly know about the patient’s needed information along with the type of Motiva Implants® they are using without the need for the Motiva® card.

    How safe are Motiva Implants®?

    The safety of the patients is the number one priority of Motiva Implants®. They are designed to ensure patient protection. 

    Here are some of the safety features that Motiva Implants® has to offer: 

    Its SmoothSilk®/SilkSurface® is made through the process of 3D printing technology. This ensures that every breast implant would meet the high-quality standards of the implant surface and have consistent results. Moreover, the shell doesn’t have any salt/sugar components, thus reducing the risk of rare complications caused by unwanted friction from the implant to the breast tissue.

    Moreover, BluSeal® is a protective barrier layer. It allows your surgeons to visibly check your breast implants for any sign of defects such as gel bleed, ruptures, and compromised implant shell before insertion into a patient’s body.

    Motiva® also has a high performance shell that can withstand physical pressure thanks to its TrueMonobloc® structure. This makes it possible to expand the implant without it rupturing. In contrast to other implants, Motiva Implants® can be placed through 2.5 to 3 cm incisions as opposed to 5 cm for other implants.

    Furthermore, based on a prospective study, implant-related problems such capsular contracture, rupture, and early seroma with Motiva Implants® occur at a rate of less than 1%. Additionally, there have been no incidences of Breast Implant-Associated Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma (BIA-ALCL) reported with Motiva®.
