Keep in mind that each patient is unique and your results may vary.
This 26-year-old woman joked with me that "the boob fairy never came to my house" and said she wanted "big ones!" Despite my personal bias toward a more natural appearance (even for augmented breasts), she chose relatively large, high-profile breast implants for her breast augmentation in New York.
This was one of the first "gummy bear" implant cases I have done. Sientra is the U.S. distributor for Silimed breast implants. The company has been around for more than 35 years and was the first company to offer FDA-approved, form-stable implants. This means that even if the implant shell ruptures, the silicone polymer inside will hold its shape and not ooze around the inside of the breast pocket. I like them very much because of their soft feel and cohesive nature.
Type of Breast Implant:
Sientra round, smooth, high-profile silicone, 375 cc
These implants are considered to be "form-stable" or "gummy bear" implants and do not leak if ruptured.
Augmentation Incision Type:
Inframammary (under the breast)
Submuscular (under the pectoralis major muscle)
