What’s the buzz about cohesive implants vs. silicone…

What distinguishes cohesive implants is that the silicone gel is firmer, essentially a soft solid. If a cohesive implant is cut in half, there is no gross movement of gel, and the implant maintains its shape.

The way these are made is that the company uses more “crosslinker” in the making of the implant. The ingredients are the same, but with more crosslinker added, it makes the gel firmer.

Unfortunately, given the recent media attention to cohesive implants, many are using the term to describe “regular” silicone gel implants. Technically, they are correct; all silicone gel is cohesive to some degree. But the term cohesive has always meant form stability, and when patients ask for cohesive gel, it is because they are looking for an implant with those particular characteristics of durability and shape retention. Hopefully, the terminology will be clarified in the coming years.
