Monobloc Silicone SoftOne implants: patented concept
Monobloc Silicone SoftOne is the latest highly cohesive silicone breast implant from Laboratoires Arion in France.
A safe medical procedure
The Belgian and Dutch Associations for Plastic Surgery, of which almost all plastic surgeons are members, believe that a breast enlargement with high-cohesive silicone breast implants is a safe medical procedure. Thanks to the biocompatibility of silicone (this means that the body does not display any undesired reactions to the product) medical silicone is also used in medical devices such as heart valves and artificial joints. In recent years, many scientific studies have shown that the new generation of medical silicone can be regarded as safe.
Breast implants with high-cohesive gel (solid gel)
Leakage is virtually excluded
The solid or high-cohesive silicone gel-filled implants are safe, in contrast to implants filled with liquid silicone. Leakage is virtually excluded with this type of silicone implant, even following a possible rupture of the breast implant's shell.
In terms of quality, this type of silicone implant offers the very best option and that's why our patients choose it.
Laboratiores Arion, also the inventor of the Monobloc Hydrogel prosthesis, is reputed to be the most innovative European designer of high quality breast implants since 1965.
The new Silicone breast implant was developed with a view to reliability and durability. In contrast to the water-gel filled Hydrogel breast prosthesis, the new Silicone SoftOne version has an absolute minimal chance of leakage.
SoftOne® silicone breast implants are filled with soft but highly cohesive silicone gel.
Thanks to optimal viscosity of the silicon gel, in combination with the quality of the strong shell, beautiful, natural-looking results are achieved leading to high level of patient satisfaction.
Breast augmentation with Monobloc implants
Implants with unique properties
- Super soft
The filler is made of a new, soft and highly cohesive silicone gel. The structure is almost identical to the mammary gland. This means that the prosthesis feels soft and natural.
- Minimum risk of leakage
The firm, highly cohesive non-liquid gel protects against leakage. The patented shell of the Monobloc Silicone SoftOne® offers additional protection. The breast implant's shell is formed from just one piece. The seal (the patch) is autogenously melted together with the rest of the shell. "Monobloc means 1 block". In other brands of implants the seal is often glued. A glued seal can come unstuck, increasing the risk of leakage.
- Strong and reliable
The elastomer shell is exceptionally strong and thin so that the breast implant is barely noticeable. The patented process for manufacturing the Monobloc® prostheses ensures an extremely high elasticity of 950%, making this breast implant incredibly strong and reliable.
- Small scar
Because of the extremely high elasticity - 950% - the breast prosthesis can be inserted using an injection system specially designed by the Wellness Kliniek . This makes it possible to insert the implants through the areola via a very small incision, so that any evidence of the procedure is hardly visible a few weeks afterwards. An incision under the breast is also possible of course.
All implants by Laboratoires Arion are subject to an annual inspection. The implants possess the following quality certificates:
Frequently asked questions
- Can a breast implant cause cancer?
No. No other type of implant (hip, knee, etc.) has been the subject of so much research to demonstrate its safety as breast implants have. Dozens of studies have been performed in multiple countries. Seven long-term studies have also been conducted that show that there is no connection between breast cancer, autoimmune diseases or system diseases.
Which implants are most suitable?
Liquid silicone leakage is a much-debated issue. Although scientific studies show that it poses no danger to your health, surgeons at the Wellness Kliniek prefer to opt for non-liquid, high-cohesive gel implants. Due to the high-cohesive silicone filling the content does not leak. With this type of implant the risk of leakage is therefore virtually excluded.
So why all the fuss about PIP?
PIP implants were cheap implants, generally used by surgeons who wanted to keep costs down. The PIP manufacturer faked the CE label and made sure that everything was in order for the certification procedures. However thanks to the recurring annual inspections the swindlers were eventually caught. PIP implants were never used in the Wellness Kliniek!
What do our patients say?
Breast augmentationDoctor who performed the treatment: Dr. Kristoff VerdonckWow just did my op yesterday which is 13/11/12 with Dr Verdonck and I will say he was great. I was very stressed cause I have never done any operation before. He made me feel comfortable. Even the staff were nice! My operation was 8.30pm they finished and I left the hospital by 11.30am walked back to my hotel room, took money and went out for shopping the same day. In the evening I went to restaurant close to my hotel. I feel nothing what so ever. Now let me tell you how the pain is, because for me its not a pain, because that same day after my op I travelled to Oostende 3 hours from Genk and I was fine. Today is the 14th, which is one day after my operation. The only thing I feel is like a lady breast feeding but the baby is not there. Your breast will be full, that is how I was. No pain what so ever. Really happy with the hospital. My friend in the UK also called them to book today because of me. I will wait 2 weeks to see my GP in the UK. Good luck, girls.
