North Carolina Plastic Surgeon Dr. Richard Cummings

Dr. Richard Cummings, a board-certified plastic surgeon in North Carolina, is announcing a special for women interested in making a change to the gel breast implants known as MENTOR MemoryGel. Patients of Cummings Plastic Surgery, with saline implants that decide to upgrade to the gel implants and schedule their procedure before August 31, 2011 will receive a $250 American Express gift card once the procedure is complete.

Dr. Cummings says the MemoryGel® breast implants act more like a solid than a liquid; therefore, they retain the natural look and feel of breast tissue without compromising his patients’ safety. He adds that because the implants are manufactured in a variety of sizes and profiles, he is able to create an aesthetic enhancement to match any patient’s profile and desired outcome.

After more than 20 years of research and testing, the FDA approved the cohesive gel implants for use in breast enhancement procedures in women in 2006, which Dr. Cummings says was an important step forward in the field of breast augmentation. However, he also stresses the need for a consultation with a certified plastic surgeon to discuss patient-specific goals and expectations for cosmetic enhancement of this nature.
