The growing popularity of breast augmentation procedures in the United States has led companies to release a wide variety of different sizes and styles of breast implants. One of the most popular choices for breast implants here at our Louisville practice are Sientra® implants, and for good reason.
Here are 3 reasons why Sientra is a great choice, and why Dr. Calobrace and I use them so often.
- True Texture®: The True Texture feature, unique to Sientra brand implants, is a state-of-the-art textured surface that helps to prevent rippling and keeps implants in their proper position after insertion. 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.
- 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.
- 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 with or without True Texture and come in a variety of sizes. Anatomical, or shaped implants, come in 3 base sizes and a range of projections to choose from, all available with True Texture technology.
Although there are many different implant brands, sizes, and style options, your board-certified plastic surgeon will provide you with more information and help you determine the implant that is best for your body type and desired results.
