The Sientra Gummy Bear breast implant in Los Angeles
Sientra is an American company that has acquired Silimed. Silimed is a Brazilian company that has been manufacturing breast and buttock implants for many years. The Brazilian women rival the United States for the per-capita breast augmentation. The Brazilians certainly have more implant based buttock augmentations than the Americans. Sientra has completed extensive studies on their implants to make sure that their silicone implants are safe.
Sientra is a veteran company for the newest silicone breast implants, hailed as the gummy bear implants. These implants have often been referred to as gummy bear implants because you can cut them in half, and all of the silicone remains within the implant, i.e. the silicone is highly cohesive and acts more like a solid instead of a liquid. This type of implant is favorable because the implant will retain its shape (less rippling), and it will be safer (unlikely for the silicone to migrate if the implant shell is compromised).
They offer shaped and round implants. The round implants are more beneficial in women that already have implants and are looking to upgrade to a better implant, and reduce the rippling they might experience on the outer aspect of the breast.
Candidates for breast augmentation, with a gummy bear implant, must be at least 22 years of age. The implant can be used for primary breast augmentation and also for revision breast augmentation. Breast augmentation must be performed through an inframammary incision, to ensure proper positioning of the shaped implant. Since, the silicone is highly cohesive, the incision is slightly longer than one used for a standard silicone implant, but is well hidden in the lower breast crease. The recovery is the same as a standard breast augmentation.
Sientra only provides their breast implants to plastic surgeons that are board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. Dr. Dennis Dass is a provider of Sientra implants in Los Angeles. So make an appointment today if you are interested in breast augmentation with a gummy bear implant.
