I am not a fan of adjustale implants since I believe that a proper size can be determined after a few consultations. The amount of fill in these implants is also limited and a second procedure may be required to remove the port. These implants are not new and I am unaware of any study being that they have been available for a while now.
Regards,

What you sent me was a paid advertisement. These implants have been available for the last 20 years. They are called the Becker implant. They ar very expensive but available. If you like I can place them but mst surgeons should be able to get them for you.
