The popularity of breast augmentation procedures in the United States has led companies to develop a wide variety of different sizes and styles of breast implants. One of the most popular choices for breast implants here at our Louisville, KY, practice is Sientra® implants, and for good reason.
Here are some reasons Sientra is a great choice, and why I use them so often.
- Natural look and feel: As I’ve discussed in a previous blog post, many patients seeking breast augmentation desire a natural-looking result. Sientra implants are widely believed to look and feel more like natural breast tissue than other types of implants due to the high-quality silicone gel they’re made of. The gel is also form-stable, meaning it does not change shape.
- Microtextured surface: Sientra’s microtextured shell is a state-of-the-art textured surface that helps to prevent rippling and keeps implants in their proper position after insertion. Sientra’s ultra-fine texture has been reported to have the lowest number of BIA-ALCL cases of all US implant brands. Sientra brand implants also come with a guarantee against capsular contracture, a rare condition that occurs when scar tissue builds up around the breast implant, causing it to harden and create potential discomfort.
- Variety of styles: Sientra offers a variety of different implant shapes and sizes. In addition to a range of volume options, patients may choose between anatomical and round-shaped implants. Round implants are available in 250 different options with 6 projection levels. Anatomical, or shaped implants, come in more than 90 options in 2 projection levels to choose from.
- Safety and durability: Sientra implants have undergone rigorous testing and are FDA-approved. They are known for their durability and long-term safety. Sientra implants are manufactured using advanced technology and undergo stringent quality control measures, ensuring consistency and reliability. Sientra offers a unique warranty program, including the “Sientra Platinum20™ Limited Warranty Program,” providing additional coverage and peace of mind for patients.
