sientra breast implants

The Brazilian company Silimed® has been supplying European nations with the “evolution of choice” when it comes to breast implants for quite some time. The highly-cohesive, anatomically shaped “gummy bear” implants they manufacture were envied by Americans because of the many advantages they held over other brands. Sientra® was the first to receive FDA approval for these Silimed® brand silicone breast implants in 2012. Americans can now finally enjoy breast implants that are:

  • More natural-looking

  • Less likely to rupture

  • Less likely to develop wrinkling, rippling or capsules

  • More advantageous for post-mastectomy patients

  • More advantageous for those with little breast tissue

Sientra® Implants Are Only Available for Highly Trained and Specialized Plastic Surgeons

Aside from the high quality of their products, Sientra® offers many other advantages to both patients and surgeons. Since Sientra® believes they offer the best, most specialized breast implants, they will only allow the best, most specialized plastic surgeons to use them. Sientra® implants can only be sold to plastic surgeons who are board-certified or board-eligible by The American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS).

According to the company’s CEO, Hani Zeini, “Sientra is a plastic surgeon-centric company and not just another plastic surgery business. Given our unwavering commitment to patient safety, it is our belief that breast implant surgery is best delivered by highly trained and specialized plastic surgeons.”

As a plastic surgeon board-certified by the ABPS, Dr. Karl B. Hiatt is one of the selected and qualified surgeons able to offer these cutting-edge breast implants.

Sientra®’s Replacement Warranty

Another significant advantage that Sientra® has over its two competing manufacturers (Allergan and Mentor) is its breast implant warranty, which includes:

  • Lifetime product replacement (meaning that your ruptured implant will be replaced for free at any time)

  • Up to $3,600 assistance for any out-of-pocket surgical fees required to replace the ruptured implant within 10 years after surgery

  • Free contra-lateral replacement (meaning that if it is necessary, the opposite breast implant will also be replaced free of charge; this is convenient for patients, especially if they wish to upgrade to a larger implant size or change to another style of implant)

  • Enrollment is simplified and handled by the surgeon, free of charge

  • In the event of capsular contracture within the first two years after surgery, Sientra®’s HSC or HSC+ implants will be replaced for free

It is an exciting time in the industry as we embrace these advanced technologies that have been proven both safe and effective for our valued patients.
