A New Era in Breast Augmentation
In March of 2012, the FDA approved Sientra®’s Silimed-brand implants – the original “gummy bears” that Dr. Stevens has been offering on a clinical trial basis since 2002, and that have been available in Europe since 1995. This marked a milestone in breast implant evolution and a benefit for women in the U.S. seeking breast augmentation.
These high-strength, form-stable implants were designed to be longer lasting and provide an attractive, predictable shape and natural feel. They have a lower incidence of complications than their counterparts, and have demonstrated remarkable durability and shape retention qualities. Sientra offers 9 models, and is the only implant manufacturer in the world that makes round gummy bears.
The Natrelle® 410 from Allergan received FDA approval in February of 2013, and Mentor’s version of the gummy bear is anticipated to receive approval in 2013 as well. All of this is great news for women who want more choices when it comes to silicone implants.
Dr. Stevens and Dr. Macias were among the first board-certified plastic surgeons to offer gummy bear breast implants in Los Angeles, and they can help you to decide if they are right for you.
