Sientra Cohesive Breast Implants Los Angeles

Many women have heard about the so-called 'Gummy Bear' breast implants that are more cohesive and are less likely to leak if there is an unintended rupture in the breast implant.  The FDA recently approved the use of these cohesive implants and provided Sientra the authority to market and distribute the Sientra breast implants in the United States.  These implants are cohesive silicone breast implants and are manufactured by a leading global manufacturer of breast implants. The office of Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian is now proud to introduce the Sientra implants for cosmetic breast augmentation and surgical breast reconstruction.

Sientra breast implants are available in silicone gel in a variety of shapes and sizes.  Smooth silicone or textured silicone breast implants are also available.  Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian will review all of your options for silicone breast implants and will help you choose between Sientra breast implants, Natrelle breast implants, and Mentor breast implants. The major benefit of Sientra breast implants is that they are made of a high-strength cohesive gel that is similar to the 'Gummy Bear' implants that are popular in Europe.  These cohesive breast implants have excellent shape retention and a natural soft feel compared to low viscosity silicone gels used in the past. 


The excitement with Sientra silicone breast implants has a lot to do with the high strength cohesive nature of the silicone, which effectively reduces the incidence of rupture leakage should there be an inadvertent or unexpected silent rupture of a breast implant.  Cohesive breast implants have an excellent safety profile and have been advocated by many surgeons, including board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian, as a safe breast implant for breast volume enhancement surgery.
