Our custom silicone implant service begins with a moulage or drawing provided by the surgeon. Each implant is molded from FDA master filed long-term implantable materials to provide a unique design for each patient. Fast, reliable service makes this implant option available when a standard implant just won't do.
Once we have received your completed custom implant order forms, we will send you a moulage kit, designed to create a pattern of your patient's defect. Return the pattern and Spectrum will produce a special mold and create an implant to your specifications molded out of master-filed silicones.
Each custom fabrication requires a signed Custom Implant Device Agreement and Patient Consent Form. A custom implant design is always unique to each patient and is fabricated only once. You can download a PDF of our custom forms below. Please complete each form and return to us by mail or fax.

Spectrum Designs Medical Special Implants:
If you are able to find a specific Catalog Implant part that meets your needs, but would like to change the durometer or add a fixation method, we can provide you a sterile or non-sterile implant with these modifications. For vigorous fixation of a body contour implant, Velour Dacron material can be applied to the back of the implant. The Dacron material will allow tissue to bond with the implant and prevent a larger implant from shifting after implantation. Other fixation methods include suture loops, and tissue ingrowth holes for thinner implants.
Lead times for a Custom or Special Implant are generally 4-6 weeks.
Implants that are non-sterile may have a shorter lead time – please inquire.
Spectrum Designs Medical is dedicated to the challenge of maintaining the highest production quality standards while serving the advancing demands of the medical professional. As an FDA registered implant manufacturer, we consistently provide the surgeon with the best possible implant product.
