Dr. Longo was empathetic, very professional and kind. He guided me through the whole process, from the type of implant to my recovery. Not only did meet my expectations, he exceeded them; He gave me complete information ... More
At Establishment Labs, we believe that the continuous evolution of implant technology is the key to achieving the best possible safety and aesthetic outcomes for our patients. With this in mind, we have created a revolutionary, 6th generation of advanced smooth implants with SmoothSilk®/SilkSurface®: our biocompatible surface designed to minimize inflammation, bacteria, and biofilm formation.
As the most comprehensive silicone-filled, smooth implant portfolio on the market, the Motiva® line is an innovative set of implants, surgical tools, and techniques for breast and buttock augmentation and breast reconstruction, created by Establishment Labs (NASDAQ: ESTA) – a global, high-tech medical device manufacturer with a presence in 70+ countries.
Its breast implants include Motiva® Round (for greater upper-pole fullness and a more youthful appearance); Ergonomix® Round and Oval (which are designed to adapt seamlessly to the body’s natural movements, holding a teardrop shape when upright and a round shape when laying down); and Anatomical TrueFixation® (the only anatomical implant with reinforced silicone tabs to minimize rotation).
Its gluteal/buttock implant, GlutealArmonic®, holds a harmonic shape and features orientation guide marks that simplify implant placement and are radiopaque to be visible on X-ray scans.
In an industry where technological evolution has stagnated, Motiva Implants® are characterized by patented, first-of-its-kind features that maximize long-term safety and aesthetic outcomes. These features include:
- Optional Q Inside® Safety Technology: a passive RFID microtransponder that allows for important implant information to be verified easily and non-invasively at any time
- BluSeal®: a visual safety indicator that allows healthcare providers to inspect the implant’s shell integrity
- TrueMonobloc®: a multilayer system that links all implant components (gel, shell, and patch) to create a unified, strong yet flexible structure that allows for easier insertion via smaller incisions
- SmoothSilk®/SilkSurface®: a smooth, uniform shell surface that is designed to minimize inflammation and maximize biocompatibility
In maintaining patient centricity in both safety and long-term satisfaction in aesthetic results, the company has developed specialized tools and techniques that create value for both surgeons and patients by making the implantation procedure easier and safer with minimal scarring.
These include branded surgical procedures such as the MotivaHybrid® surgery (which combines the use of smaller – and thus, safer – implants with autologous fat grafts from the patient to achieve natural-looking aesthetic symmetry) and the Motiva MinimalScar™ (a set of tools and techniques that allow for minimal scarring by reducing required incisions to nearly 50% of their standard size).
In efforts to minimize any communication gaps between patients and surgeons, Establishment Labs has developed Divina®, an advanced 3D simulation system created in partnership with Crisalix®. Divina® allows partner surgeons to capture the patient’s body as a 3D data set with anatomical measurements and photo-realistic precision, so that possible post-operative results may be visually simulated for patient comprehension and discussion.
The company lists its partner surgeons and clinics on the MotivaImagine Center® Locator, a database that allows patients easier access to appropriately licensed surgeons who are experienced in using Motiva® products.
Establishment Labs® backs its Motiva® products with warranty programs that are widely considered to be the most comprehensive on the market. The company provides financial support to further patient-centric research as well as continuing education to keep surgeons in touch with the latest tools and techniques on the market.
