The 410 breast implants are a new type of silicone breast implant commonly referred to as a “gummy bear implant” due to the consistency of the cohesive, form-stable gel, as in 'gummy bear candy'. The material is denser and can maintain shape better in an upright position.
The Natrelle Style 410 implant may offer advantages especially in breast reconstruction patients since it may help recreate a new breast shape after cancer surgery.
dvantages of the Style 410 implant
Shape and Feel: Not only do highly cohesive, form-stable gel implants feel soft and supple, but they maintain their anatomical (teardrop) shape well into the surrounding breast tissue, resulting in a very natural contour.
ongevity : These 'gummy bear' implants offer the advantages of an highly cohesive gel 'gummy
which can add to longevity. Longevity, because
they do not develop as many folds, and it is along folds that
implants ultimately fail. And if, somehow, the shell
does fail, since the gel is so thick, it should
not migrate anywhere in any significant quantity.

Patients with lax (loose) breast tissue, mild sagging(ptosis) may not be considered ideal patient for this implant because the breast tissue can not be reshaped to the loose breast tissue. The current less cohesive responsive implants have a better chance of reshaping these patients.
Patients with thin breast tissue may not be considered ideal patient for this implant because the implant may be visible and have a very firm unnatural feeling.
Patients with a convex chest wall or other types of curvature to the chest wall may not be ideal candidates for this implant because the implant may not lie flat on the chest wall.
The firmness of this implant may cause edge visibility and palpability.
Cost: The Natrelle Style 410 are considerably more expensive $.
Gel Fracture / Rupture: This device can rupture or fracture since the implant is a 'semisolid'. This may cause a breast deformity. Of course any implant that has a rupture requires replacement/revision surgery.
Silicone is a naturally occurring element found in sand, quartz and rock that can be manufactured in the form of oils, gels and solids. Highly cohesive gel implants are manufactured as a solid mass of silicone gel that's created by adding a cross-links to produce a tighter molecular bond. The result is similar in consistency and feel to the small, rubbery-textured and gelatin-based gummy bear candies, hence the nickname. Cut a pie shape out of a cohesive gel implant and it will maintain its shape, which is why these devices are described as being more "form stable" than their less cohesive silicone gel implants. If the shell ruptures, the gel will not likely migrate. This is considered a safety advantage. When any implant is placed in the body, the body forms a capsule around the implant. If a cohesive implant were to leak, it would probably just stay within the capsule. The capsule might thicken, and a patient may notice a firmer feel of the breast. But it is also possible that there might be no change at all. A rupture might be detected by mammogram or MRI.
