FAIRFIELD, Conn., Oct. 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- There is tremendous excitement about the new generation of Silicone breast implants known as Cohesive gel implants also nicknamed "Gummy Bear" implants. They are now being offered by all the major three companies that manufacture implants: Sientra, Mentor CPG implants and Allergan .410 Implants.
Most patients are shocked when they learn that a physician does not have to be certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery to perform Plastic Surgery. Sientra, the first of the three major manufacturers of breast implants to receive FDA approval for their cohesive shaped implants in 2012, has taken the highly principled position to only sell to board certified Plastic Surgeons because they understand that results of a breast augmentation procedure is dependent on the surgeon using the implants.
The Cohesive implants have more "crosslinker" therefore the gel is a soft solid and has no movement of the gel. If the implant ruptures or even if the implant is cut in half, the silicone remains within its shell and maintains its own shape.The other advantage of the cohesive implants is the reduced rate of rippling. It is part of the solution to correct rippling in patients who already have rippling from their previous surgery.
In addition to the above, The Sientra warranty is the best in the industry. The warranty program includes
- Up to $3600 toward surgery, if needed, due to a rupture within 10 years after breast implant surgery
- Lifetime product replacement if implant ruptures
- Free contralateral (opposite side) implant if needed
- Enrollment is at no cost to the patient.
Dr. Sofer commented on the Cohesive gel implants: "We are very excited to offer this new technology to our patients."
