As breast augmentation is one of the most common forms of bodily cosmetic surgery – it was one of the top five cosmetic surgical procedures performed in 2020 in the United States – it’s fair to say that safety concerns are more pertinent than ever. In fact, the global breast implant market reached a value of US$2.48billion in 2021.
Today, technology has blessed us with safer methods of surgery and just recently, there’s a new trend in the market. JOY® by Motiva® is said to provide an all-in-one experience for those considering breast implants – placing emphasis on women’s health and providing holistic support from consultation to post-op care.
With breast implant surgery involving precisive processes such as anaesthesia, incision, insertion and placement, this one-of-a-kind program aims to make breast augmentation surgery as safe and assured as possible. Singapore is the first country in Asia to have this program readily available, and there are unique aspects of JOY® by Motiva® that not only make up its core program but also set it apart from other breast implant procedures.
Some of the program’s unique features include implants with softer touch and feel, a warranty program to provide peace of mind, the freedom to opt for implant removal (a reversal procedure) as well as minimal incisions.
Features of the breast augmentation program
#1 Motiva Ergonomix2®
These breast implants are the softest available in the Motiva® range, with improved features that are designed to move with you and provide an organic look, feel and movement. It uses Motiva SuperSilicones®, a high-strength silicone dispersion used in the implant shell, resulting in improved mechanical properties1, which results in enhanced ergonomy, extra soft feel, and more natural movement.
To unify the breast implant’s structure, a proprietary multi-layer system called TrueMonobloc+® is used. This helps create a sterile shell that allows implant insertion with Motiva MinimalScar®. The breast augmentation procedure is made even safer with BluSeal+®, the only visual safety barrier among tested commercially available implants.
For advanced smooth-surface implants, SmoothSilk®/SilkSurface® aids in minimising the risk of complications2,3 compared to traditional textured or smooth surfaces. Together with ProgressiveGel Ultima® silicone gel, you’ll experience the natural look and feel of breast surgery, with implants that adapt to your breasts’ natural movement1– achieving a round shape when lying down while forming a natural looking teardrop shape when standing up.5 Post-op reassurance is also provided with RFID-Enabled Implant (QiD®), an FDA-approved micro-transponder system that lets healthcare providers verify important implant information – even outside the body.4
#2 Motiva® Warranty Program
To assure and give you peace of mind, JOY® automatically covers you under the Always Confident Warranty (in cases of rupture), Product Replacement Policy (Capsular contracture with Baker grade III & IV), and Motiva® Extended Warranty of five-year coverage.
#3 Woman’s Choice Program®
All women with JOY® will have the option to reverse* their augmentation with their Ergonomix2® implants – regardless of the reason – and receive financial aid for the procedure.
*Within two years, starting from the date of breast augmentation surgery.
#4 Motiva MinimalScar®
With an exclusive selection of world-class surgeons in Singapore who have undergone a specialised medical education program by Motiva®, these selected surgeons are trained on Motiva MinimalScar® techniques, creating minimal-incision breast surgery. These smaller incisions create a more comfortable recovery process for you.
