I just returned from an educational event in Miami. About 200 plastic surgeons were invited by Allergan (a large company producing many aesthetics products including breast implants) to learn about a new product they will be launching in January 2014. The product is a sophisticated silk mesh that may be used for, among other things, revising certain types of reconstructive and cosmetic breast problems. We were taken to a lab, the Miami Anatomical Research Center, and provided with a "hands-on" learning experience in a very high-tech environment. The product, called SERI, looks like it may be very helpful for women whose breast implants have "bottomed out" or end up too far apart or too close together. This was a great experience and an opportunity to remain at the forefront of providing innovative products and services in breast surgery. All of us in the office are dedicated to providing our patients with current, comprehensive, and compassionate care. Come check us out!
