We know it can be challenging for both patients and surgeons to select the most suitable implant for a breast augmentation. With this in mind, we created Motiva Implants® and accompanying consultation tools to offer the most comprehensive range of implant types to suit women with a variety of body types.

While basic tools to help select the right implant type, size, and shape have included samples or rice bags, Motiva® provides more advanced, proprietary tools that allow both patients and surgeons to more accurately visualize potential breast enhancement results – and thus, make the most appropriate implant choice.

To begin with, Motiva® offers the most comprehensive range of implants of all major implant manufacturers. All Motiva Implants® are developed with an advanced smooth surface, so patients don’t have to worry about experiencing the potential side effects associated with macrotextured surfaces.

The Motiva® range includes four main implant types:

  • Motiva® Round, for a fuller upper breast that provides a perkier, more youthful appearance
  • Ergonomix® Round (or simply Ergonomix®), the world’s only ergonomic implant designed to mimic the look, feel, and movement of real breast tissue
  • Ergonomix® Oval, an oval-shaped implant made particularly for women with wider or longer chests
  • Anatomical TrueFixation®, the world’s only anatomical or teardrop-shaped implant on the market with a smooth surface/shell

3D Simulation

While the use of 3D imaging tools is now standard practice at several clinics, our proprietary Motiva® implant imaging applications have been developed to offer a more accurate representation of post-operative results that can be achieved with Motiva Implants® through procedures that are customized for each patient’s needs.

First, your specific body proportions will be captured as a set of 3D data so that your surgeon can determine your pre-operative chest size and shape. Then, they will simulate possible breast augmentation outcomes so you can visualize what each might look like on your body.

This level of detail is particularly useful for patients wishing to incorporate other goals into their surgery besides breast enlargement, such as correcting asymmetry, tubular breasts, chest wall irregularities, or sagging (ptosis).

The software is even sophisticated enough to display potential results that could be obtained by combining Motiva Implants® with your own fat.

Intraoperative Sizers

Sizers are essentially sterile, single-use/temporary implants that are meant to be used by a surgeon during plastic or reconstructive surgery. Once the surgeon creates a pocket in the chest area for the implant to be inserted into, a sizer is placed inside it to check that the pocket’s size and the sizer’s volume and shape are appropriate for the patient.

After the right combination of pocket and implant size is determined, the sizer is swapped out for the matching final implant.

Motiva® sizers are manufactured to resemble their corresponding implant’s characteristics, with one important distinction from competitors: the final Motiva Implants® are light blue, while Motiva® sizers are purple. Applied with biocompatible dyes, these colors allow surgeons to easily distinguish between them while in the operating room.
