Boca Raton Based Plastic Surgeon Introduces Revolutionary New Adjustable Breast Implant to Europe and Asia
Date:6/25/2008

BOCA RATON, Fla., June 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. Hilton Becker M.D., F.A.C.S., F.R.C.S. of Boca Raton, Florida, who has been working on creating breast implants for the last 20 years, has created his most effective implant yet -- the Spectra Adjustable Gel Implant which is 90 percent silicone and can adjust in both shape and size after it has been implanted.
