For our patients from around the world who come to Los Angeles for breast implant surgery, the options are better than ever. In March of 2012, the FDA-approved Sientra’s Silimed Implants, a high-strength cohesive silicone gel implants – the original “gummy bear implants.” Although our surgeons have offered these implants for years as part of their clinical trials, they are now available to all breast augmentation patients who are 22 and older.
With many safe and effective silicone-gel breast implant options available, you may wonder what makes this product such a breakthrough.
Additionally, the manufacturer has made a strong statement about its commitment to patient safety by offering these implants only to board-eligible and board-certified plastic surgeons. The company also offers an unprecedented warranty, valid only if the breast augmentation is performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon. Dr. Stevens has studied these implants extensively and published his findings in the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery’s Aesthetic Surgery Journal. He found that these form-stable silicone gel breast implants are safe and have a complication profile similar to other models of silicone breast implants. Furthermore, our Los Angeles gummy bear breast implants have a lower rate of capsular contracture and a decreased incidence of wrinkling compared to fourth-generation silicone gel implants.
The Sientra implants are available in three shapes: round, oval, and classic. These round gummy bear implants come in low, moderate, or high profile, which means more choices for customizing breast augmentation results. No other gummy bear manufacturer makes the variety of shapes and sizes that Sientra does. These implants can be placed through the same incision types as other silicone gel implants, including periareolar and inframammary incisions.
Both Allergan and Mentor Corporations received FDA approval for their form-stable silicone gel implants in 2013. Ultimately, the Sientra implants are another milestone in the evolution of breast implant safety and better >breast augmentation options for women.
To begin with, the form-stable, gummy bear consistency of the cohesive gel filler is unmatched for strength. The implants retain their shape, even when the gel is displaced under high pressure. This remarkable video demonstrates the implant’s unique shape retention qualities.
