Barcelona, Spain – 15 July 2013 – The recent health scandal which saw 20,000 Spanish patients receive defective breast implants has resulted in a rise in demand for trusted, quality medical devices and today, leading manufacturer GC Aesthetics announces the introduction of their British-made implants to Spain. Among the products to be launched by their Nagor brand is Impleo, currently the company’s bestselling range in the UK.
Between 20,000 and 30,000 breast augmentations take place each year in Spain, where there are 850 registered plastic surgeons. Nagor provides a choice of 270 potential projection and profile combinations consisting of a wide variety of gels and levels of cohesion, offering the patient a wide range of aesthetic possibilities.
The extensive product portfolio includes RGI, a round, smooth implant for easy insertion and soft feel; GFX, a round textured implant used both in reconstructions and aesthetic augmentations; CoGel, an anatomical (teardrop-shaped) implant and surgeons’ favourite: the bestselling Impleo range available in smooth and textured surfaces.
All Nagor Implants are manufactured with high performance silicone elastomer layers to enhance shell integrity and have a unique 360 degree barrier layer to minimise gel diffusion (bleeding through the implant shell). Unlike other manufacturers, virtually every Nagor implant has a corresponding inflatable sizer, a device which enables the surgeon to ensure the dimensions are correct before the implant is inserted, making sure the patient is given the best possible look and shape.
Ignasi Salla, GC Aesthetics’ General Director for Spain, says:
“We are thrilled to be able to offer our range of products directly to the Spanish market for the first time. With over 30 years’ history, Nagor is a trusted brand among surgeons and patients and it is no surprise that demand for our high quality implants continues to soar both in the UK and internationally.”
Earlier this year, GC Aesthetics welcomed Ms Ayse Kocak as their Chief Executive Officer, remarkably the industry’s first-ever female CEO. She says:
“It is essential that patients are given a wide range of choice when contemplating breast procedures. Our company is proud to listen and respond to women’s needs; we’re not just making and selling medical devices, we are helping them change the way they feel about themselves. I’m delighted to introduce Nagor as a new and exciting option to the women of Spain.”
