INTRASHIEL™ Barrier Technology

The Natrelle collection breast implant composition imageNatrelle`s implants are also manufactured with a unique barrier technology design that offers an extra layer of protection, minimising the chance of rupture and gel diffusion. The patented INTRASHIEL™ Barrier Technology is an additional barrier layer that sits underneath several layers of high performance elastomer, designed to improve shell integrity.

BIOCELL™ Texturisation

Natrelle implants can be manufactured with a smooth outer shell or a textured outer shell. BIOCELL™, Natrelle`s patented textured shell, was designed to give superior tissue adherence. In turn, this ensures that the implant maintains the proper position in the breast. In addition, clinical trials have also shown that the BIOCELL texturisation is effective in reducing the incidence of capsular contraction and implant rotation.

Silicone Gel Filled Breast Implants

TruForm™ Silicone Gel

Every silicone gel-filled implant in the Natrelle range is manufactured with their patented TruForm™ silicone gel, which acts like a soft solid rather than a liquid. Cohesive silicone gel does not spill or move in the unlikely event of the implant rupturing, making it a safe option for patients.

Natrelle`s TruForm gel range comes in four different options, each offering a different look and feel.

  • TruForm 1 is a traditional soft cohesive gel which is very mouldable to the breast shape, featured on the Natrelle INSPIRA round implants
  • TruForm 2 is a stable cohesive gel that offers a natural look and feel with shape control, featured on the Natrelle INSPIRA round implants and the Natrelle 410 anatomical implants
  • TruForm 3 is the original form cohesive gel, featured on the Natrelle 410 anatomical implants
  • TruForm Dual Gel combines two cohesive gels, TruForm 3 and a firmer cohesive gel, featured on the anterior portion of Natrelle 510 anatomical dual gel implants
