Another Gummy Bear Implant Approved

The FDA recently approved the use of the silicone “gummy bear” implant. The 410 implant by Allergan is an anatomically-shaped, textured, silicone cohesive gel implant that is much firmer than the previous silicone gel implants. To better understand what these are and how they differ from currently available options, let’s talk facts.

Anti-Aging Gene Discovered

Humans have been on the hunt for the answers to aging, as evidenced by the popularity of Botox. Science has yet to discover the modern day fountain of youth, however a recent discovery of two anti-aging genes have been discovered. The protein(s) are known as SIRT6 and SIRT3. SIRT6 protein not only suppresses tumors (helps suppress cancer), it may also offer a protection against the development of obesity and help control our cellular metabolism.
