For over twenty years, all the implants used in breast augmentation and implant based breast reconstruction surgeries in the United States have been made by either Allergan, Inc. or Mentor Worldwide, the only companies approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) to sell implants in our country. This duopoly changed recently, when the FDA granted approval to a third company, Sientra, to market silicone breast implants in the US. This approval brings to the market Sientra’s Silimed brand portfolio of silicone breast implants, which offers surgeons additional implant choices for their patients. Sientra offers both standard round gel implants in addition to shaped implants, all available in a wide range of sizes, profiles, projections and implant surfaces.
Sientra sells implants only to Board Certified Plastic Surgeons, to ensure that patients who receive Sientra implants can be assured that their surgeon is properly trained to perform their surgery. These implants have an automatic lifetime warranty for rupture and significant funds for rupture surgery.
To learn if breast augmentation or reconstruction with Sientra implants can provide the results you envision, schedule an appointment with Board Certified Plastic Surgeon Brian S. Glatt, MD, FACS. Call Premier Plastic Surgery Center of New Jersey’s Morristown office today at 973-889-9300.
