The World’s First Ergonomic Implant: For the Look, Feel, and Movement of Natural Breast Tissue

Blog Post May 26, 2020 3 MIN READ

A breast reconstruction or augmentation with the most natural-looking results possible is at the top of the list for many women interested in the procedure. Typically, their goal tends to be a noticeable cosmetic change, while raising no suspicion to onlookers that a procedure even took place.

But while a talented surgeon could employ techniques that make a natural appearance possible, the implant itself determines how a breast might feel and move – telling qualities of naturality.

Most manufacturers of silicone gel implants (far more widely used than their saline counterparts) tend to promote their versions of form-stable “gummy bear” implants literally named after gummy bears, which hold their form (i.e. stay cohesive) when cut into. These 5 th generation implants are typically teardrop/anatomical in shape.

The gel within a gummy bear implant does not move as the implant itself moves, which has led to women complaining that this implant type feels and moves stiffly and unnaturally.

But women shouldn’t have to trade in softness for structure! And now, they don’t have to.

Motiva Ergonomix ® – the world’s first and only ergonomic implant – is designed to behave like real breast tissue. Its gel is highly cohesive, but unlike gummy bear implants, Ergonomix® adapts to gravity and the body’s movements, holding a teardrop shape while one stands and becoming round when lying down.

Simply put, an anatomical gummy bear implant can be made to look more natural in shape, but feels stiff and springy to the touch, is too static to move naturally with the body. In contrast, an Ergonomix ® implant’s shape is still a natural-looking teardrop, while feeling much softer to the touch and dynamically moving with the rest of the body – as breast tissue would.
