A lot of the patients who come to see me for breast augmentation in the Tacoma and Seattle area want to know which breast implants will look the most natural. Although different options work best for different patients, Sientra’s shaped silicone implants are commonly chosen due to a number of benefits:
- A natural look: Sientra implants come in round and “shaped” varieties. The shaped style (sometimes called teardrop-shaped or anatomical) more closely mimics the look of a natural breast than the round style, with more fullness at the bottom. Many of my patients over the years have said they wanted larger breasts that didn’t look overly round or “fake,” and this new generation of shaped implants offers the perfect solution. They come in a wide range of sizes and projections (meaning how far they stick out from a patient’s chest), so each woman can find an option that fits her frame in a natural-looking way.
- A natural feel: Sientra’s shaped implants are filled with a highly cohesive silicone gel that was designed to resemble the feel of natural breast tissue. Past generations of silicone implants have sometimes felt overly firm to the touch, but Sientra’s implants hold their shape without compromising a natural softness.
- Strong and safe: One of the most impressive benefits of Sientra’s highly cohesive silicone implants is that they hold their shape and the silicone gel will remain within the implant in the unlikely event of a rupture. Also, because of their proprietary Silimed® texture technology, they have the lowest risk of capsular contracture, a complication that can hurt a patient’s cosmetic results. These benefits mean Sientra’s shaped silicone implants are among the safest on the market today, and Sientra is the only implant manufacturer with a warranty against capsular contracture.
The results a qualified plastic surgeon can achieve with these breast implants can appear “super natural,” but there are other options that may be right for certain patients. To find out whether these implants would be a good choice for you, be sure to visit an experienced breast specialist.
