New Development in Breast Implants
A new development in breast implants comes from the manufacturer Sientra. They have released the only fifth generation round, smooth silicone gel implants on the market. This is the same highly cohesive gel found in their anatomic implants. This implant is called the style 107 implant.
The advantages of this implant in certain situations are the following. Because the silicone is more highly cohesive, it tends to maintain its shape better against gravity. What this can mean for you is that it retains more of the volume in the upper part of the implant when you are in a standing position. This can help give improved fullness to the upper part of the breast above the nipple.
Also, for a woman who wants a more rounded appearance, this implant can hold its shape better and provide more of that appearance.
These appearance differences compared to the regular Sientra silicone gel (style 106), which is also a cohesive gel (gummy bear) implant, are not necessarily dramatic, but this implant is the only one that can provide some improvement to these issues.
Dr. Wiener, up to this time, has been one of only about three plastic surgeons in Texas who has been allowed to use this implant. His experience with the style 107 is ahead of the curve.
