B-Lite® Lightweight Breast Implants
The New Power Brand of POLYTECH

Developed to overcome the limitations of traditional breast implants by considerably reducing gravitational stress, B-Lite® applies groundbreaking technology, combining well known and clinically proven materials in an innovative way to provide natural fullness, feel and strength with a significantly lighter implant weight.

Once patients hold the B-Lite® implant during pre-op consultation, the intuitive understanding of the benefits related to the reduced weight empowers them to seek B-Lite®.

B-Lite® implants are available in a variety of shapes, sizes and textures, to accommodate the wide variety of patient needs and preferences.

Lightness you can feel

The significant weight reduction is achieved through the unique and proprietary B-Lite® gel, a microsphere-enhanced cohesive implantable-grade silicone gel. The microspheres are inert, ultra-high purity, hollow, borosilicate microspheres that are broadly used in space technology as a lightweight yet robust solution. Microspheres are used and approved in numerous clinical applications.(1)

The B-Lite® microspheres are permanently bonded within the surrounding cohesive silicone gel. By employing selective spatial positioning and by chemically bonding the microspheres to the gel network, less silicone gel is required and extra reinforcement is achieved. Even in the unlikely event of rupture, the microspheres are designed to remain bound within the gel.(1)

B-Lite® gel offers significantly less weight. Extensively investigated in stringent preclinical testing and validation phases, B-Lite® is CE marked and its unique features and characteristics were proved in biological, mechanical, and chemical testing performed by leading labs checking performance under conditions often exceeding required benchmarks.(1)

 

B-Lite® was developed by a team of plastic surgeons, chemists, biologists, scientists and engineers, working together to revolutionize the breast augmentation experience.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

Increased weight equals increased gravitational pull, which increases stress and strain on the breast and surrounding tissue. This can ultimately lead to sagging, as well as cause back and neck pain. Breast movement during activity exacerbates the effect of weight which can cause discomfort and increase the stress and strain on the breast tissue. Less weight equals less strain. It’s that simple.

 

The B-Lite® gel is created by permanently bonding tiny hollow spheres within the standard implantable-grade silicone gel, which makes the implants significantly lighter. Microspheres are widely used in a range of applications. They are biocompatible and can be found in medical devices and cosmetics.(1) The microspheres are integrated within the cohesive gel and their bonding to the gel remains intact even in the unlikely case of the implant rupturing. The B-Lite® gel incorporates technology used in space technology, offering significantly less weight. Microspheres are biocompatible and used in many kinds of medical applications e.g. in urology, oncology, gastroenterology, orthopedics and more(1).

 

B-Lite® implants were developed by a multidisciplinary team of physicians, scientists and engineers, then extensively tested over the course of 10 years before being offered to patients.

 

All materials used in the production of the CE marked B-Lite® implants are well documented, safe, inert, biocompatible, and have a long history of use in medicine.(1) B-Lite® implants employ the clinically proven POLYTECH shell, used in hundreds of thousands of procedures.

The B-Lite® microspheres are small microscopic balls that are very strong yet extremely light. The microspheres are biocompatible and very stable.

 

Yes. Microspheres are already widely used in a range of applications. They are biocompatible and can be found in medical devices and cosmetics. Microspheres are common in urology, oncology, gastroenterology, orthopedics and more(1). The microspheres are integrated within the cohesive gel and their bonding to the gel remains intact even in the unlikely case of the implant rupturing. Crush strength tests demonstrated that the borosilicate microspheres in B-Lite® can withstand pressures of over 200 psi (>13 atm), far beyond the pressure ranges women are predicted to be exposed to following implantation, including during flight and recreational diving.

 

It is the reflection of light on the microspheres within the gel.

 

Whilst white & opaque in visible light, the microspheres improve the quality of results in mammography and ultrasound.(2)
