Breast Augmentation: Choosing Gummy Bear Implants by Sientra

Breast augmentation is one of the leading cosmetic surgeries elected by women each year. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, approximately 300,000 breast augmentation procedures were performed just last year. Breast implants, specifically silicone implants, have evolved over the past thirty years to provide women with the safest, most reliable and natural looking results.

The latest in breast implant technology today are the gummy bear implants by Sientra. While the nickname gummy bear is not the true medical term, the implants are described this way due to their gel-like consistency. Technically known as form-stable cohesive silicone gel, Sientra’s newest implants now offer women the most variety in natural looking breast augmentation.

The advantages and benefits of choosing Sientra’s Gummy Bear implants:

  • U.S. FDA approved in March, 2012
  • The high-strength cohesive silicone gel is the first of its kind and is exclusive to Sientra
  • Unlike Type 3 standard silicone implants, Sientra’s Type 5 stable cohesive silicone implants do not leak if punctured
  • The patented formula and design help to retain shape, smoothness and post-operative position in the subglandular and submuscular areas
  • Stronger durability and a thicker shell covering minimize the risk of rupture, wrinkling, folding, post-operative sagging and capsular contracture
  • Provides the most natural-looking appearance with real breast tissue-like texture. Patients report that the gummy bear implants feel the most similar to their natural breasts
  • Offers three implant designs to compliment different body types: classic, round and oval
  • Offers the most customizable fit based on desirable breast projection, height and profile
  • Also recommended for breast lift and breast reconstruction patients, including breast replacement and/or revision
  • Sientra implants are distributed to Board Certified Plastic Surgeons only
