November 13, 2013 1 min read

The specialty of plastic surgery is as much about art as it is about surgery and there are some surgeons who are renowned not only for their professional skill but also for their sculptural ability. 

Even though the first known implants were carved from silicone blocks - the fact that todays silicone implants may be carved to meet a patients individual specifications, is not often considered by many plastic surgeons.

Which implants may be carved?
It is important to always strive for the very best results and this is why Precise Medical only stocks the finest implants from the market leaders Implantech.

  • Although all Implantech implants can be carved - usually this is only done withbody implants.
  • In addition to this we also stock a silicone carving block in 3 different durometers that can be carved to your specifications. 
How to carve them 
First select the implant that is closest to what is required - then use a scalpel or scissors to shape as required.
