Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) July 02, 2012
The plastic surgeons of Marietta Plastic Surgery recently announced they are the first Georgia plastic surgical practice to use the newly FDA-approved Sientra textured shaped breast implants. Approved in March 2012 and offered only to board certified* plastic surgeons, Sientra’s Silimed® brand silicone breast implants have been in use for decades outside of the US and are entering a domestic market traditionally served by two dominant players.
According to the company, until now and in contrast to the rest of the world, the only US-approved silicone breast implants have been round in shape. Sientra breast implants give patients a variety of shapes and sizes, focusing on profile, proportion and projection. Options include a more traditional round or new anatomically shaped implant, allowing patients a more customized result.
Dr. Michael McNeel, board certified plastic surgeon at Marietta Plastic Surgery, is the first surgeon to perform a breast augmentation in Georgia using the newest anatomically shaped silicone gel Sientra breast implant. “We strive on giving our patients the best options for the best outcomes. As leaders in breast enhancement and reconstruction surgery in Georgia, we were eager to add Sientra breast implants to our mix, giving our patients even more choices to meet their aesthetic goals,” Dr. McNeel stated.
Sientra implants, sometimes referred to as “gummy bear” implants because of their ability to maintain their desired shape without compromising softness, are made of high-strength cohesive silicone gel that has been used successfully for 33 years outside of the US. Sientra breast implants are only offered to board certified* plastic surgeons, recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties.
