Dr. Teitelbaum has used hundreds of Natrelle Style 410 implants with an experience spanning back to 2001, and he now has one of the largest 410 case series in the United States. He wrote the curriculum that is used to qualify doctors to use this gummy bear breast implant. Dr. Teitelbaum was videotaped performing a breast augmentation with a cohesive implant that is used in the training of all American surgeons who wish to use this implant, and two of his own 410 gummy bear implant patients were selected as the models for use in 410 advertisements...one of them is currently the face of the 410 marketing campaign!
Dr. Teitelbaum received a patent on a breast implant sizing device that is distributed to 410 surgeons as a tool to help them select the ideal 410 implant shape and size for each of their patients.
His experience and knowledge of this gummy bear breast implant is so vast that he was invited to Brazil—the cosmetic surgery capital of the world—to perform a breast augmentation with a 410 implant that was broadcast by satellite to nearly a thousand surgeons.
The 410 implant was the very first of the highly cohesive anatomically shaped implants that are now commonly referred to as "gummy bear implants," or just simply, "the gummies." Click here for gummy bear implant before and afters.
They have been used overseas since 1993 and have produced wonderful results. There are 12 shapes of the 410 implant for a given volume, enabling the surgeon to select a very specific shape for each patient. With experience using nearly every shape of the 410 implant in almost every clinical situation, Dr. Teitelbaum can advise each patient about the suitability of this implant for them.
Dr. Teitelbaum is one of the only American surgeons to have used the 410, CPG, and Silimed/Sientra implants. He has followed his patients annually since the beginning of the study, witnessing any changes that occurred over the decade of follow-up. This scope and breadth of experience makes Dr. Teitelbaum one of the true experts on the gummy bear breast implants in the United States.
