Here's an opportunity to let a breast augmentation implant manufacturer know what YOU think. Sientra has asked me to post the below info and questions about their brand new anatomical (also known as "teardrop") implant offering in the USA.
Please answer the questions in bold below in the comments section to have this brand take your thoughts and questions into consideration as they work on creating breast augmentation products that better serve the public's needs.
Sientra, makers of the newly FDA-approved, round and anatomically shaped, silicone gel breast implants, is looking to gather feedback from the online breast augmentation community. Disclaimer: I’ll be paid $200 by WEGO Health and Sientra to conduct this activity. They will also be making a $200 donation to a non-profit of my choice for gathering your thoughts and feedback.
Sientra’s exciting new line of form-stable, anatomically shaped breast implants makes Sientra the first and only company in the United States to offer both round and anatomically shaped breast implants. Shaped like teardrops, and designed to look and feel like a natural breast, anatomically shaped implants have been popular in Europe and Brazil for nearly two decades. Now, for the first time, women in the U.S. also have a choice when it comes to implant shape. Whether you prefer the more natural appearance of anatomically shaped implants or want more fullness in the upper portion of the breast that round implants provide, Sientra can help you achieve the look you want.
What makes these implants special is the silicone gel they are filled with—High-Strength cohesive silicone gel. This unique silicone gel is designed to hold together, allowing the implants to maintain their teardrop shape. The best way to illustrate the qualities of High-Strength cohesive silicone gel is to cut one of Sientra’s shaped implants in half as shown here. [http://www.youtube.com/sientra]
To ensure that women who receive Sientra implants are implanted by the most highly trained surgeons, Sientra has made a commitment to sell its breast implants exclusively to Plastic Surgeons who are certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. Sientra is the only manufacturer of breast implants to make this commitment.
