Introducing Sientra Implants

Are you looking for breast implants that closely mimic the shape, weight and feel of natural breast tissue? You might be interested to learn more about the Sientra breast implants, and why they have quickly become a favorite amongst plastic surgeons and patients.

Northern New Jersey plastic surgeon Dr. Erwin Bulan explains the features of the Sientra implants, which are available exclusively through board certified plastic surgeons.

Strong, Cohesive Filling Material

Sientra breast implants are filled with a high-strength cohesive silicone gel material that is encased in a durable outer shell. The nature of the filling material enables the implants to retain their form, yet stay soft to the touch like natural breast tissue. Sientra designed the implants so there is virtually no chance of the implant rippling or folding within the shell. The material is so stable and cohesive that even if the implant were to be twisted, stretched or sliced in half, it would not leak. We refer to this as “form stable;” however, these types of implants are often termed “gummy bear” implants.

Different Shapes for Different Results

Sientra implants come in both round and teardrop shapes to produce different results. The round implants offer equal projection on top and bottom (to provide more of a “push-up” bra result). The teardrop implants gently slope downward to mimic the shape of a natural breast.

Smooth or Textured

Sientra implants come with either a smooth or a textured shell surface. Both options have unique advantages. Smooth implants are able to move around more freely within the breast pocket, whereas textured implants are more likely to affix themselves to the natural breast tissue so they stay in place.

Learn More about Sientra Breast Implants

While it’s helpful to research the features and advantages of Sientra breast implants on your own, let us help you make that decision regarding your breast augmentation and preferred implants. During a one-on-one consultation, we will perform a physical examination and measurements of your natural breasts and body type, and inquire about your goals of breast augmentation. We will ask you to describe the results you hope to achieve (including the ideal size and shape of your breasts). You will undergo “fit sessions” utilizing a variety of different size implants in order to see how your own profile will change with each change of implant size chosen. This is our way of incorporating the patient in truly choosing the implant size that they want. Using all this information, we will come up with a recommendation of the best implants for your needs. Here at Bulan Plastic Surgery, we will always be your advocate and partner throughout the decision-making process.
