These recently FDA-approved breast implants will give patients as well as plastic surgeons more options in achieving the patient's goals.
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) October 08, 2012
Pousti Plastic Surgery is pleased and excited to announce the San Diego plastic surgery practice’s adoption of recently FDA-approved silicone breast implants from Sientra. This new breast implant technology offers the patients of Pousti Plastic Surgery a new and innovative option for San Diego cosmetic surgery patients considering breast augmentation or revisionary breast surgery.
Sientra’s new silicone implants are crafted using a high-strength cohesive gel, presenting a much more natural look and feel similar to natural breast tissue. Sientra’s silicone implants offer unique intelligent design, developed using a form-stable silicone gel that retains shape even when twisted, pulled or stretched. The new breast implant technology is leak resistant and can even be cut in half without leaking.
Sientra is the only “fifth generation” breast implant approved by the FDA and is available only to board-certified plastic surgeons such as Dr. Tom Pousti of Pousti Plastic Surgery. Fifth generation silicone breast implants receive this classification as they are constructed using a semi-solid gel that eliminates most filler leakage and silicone migration from the breast to elsewhere in the body.
According to double-board certified San Diego plastic surgeon, Dr. Tom Pousti, “These recently FDA-approved breast implants will give patients as well as plastic surgeons more options in achieving the patient's goals. I like that it is possible to use a small periareolar incision for insertion of these implants and the fact that the cost of these implants is comparable to the other implants available in the US.”
The new silicone implants are extremely durable and lifelike in texture, resembling the shape, weight and feel of actual breast tissue. Patients of Pousti Plastic Surgery are able to select from a variety of options including smooth or textured outer surface, round or anatomical shape, and a variety of custom implant configurations enabling variation in the degree of outward projection from the chest.
Tom Pousti, M.D., F.A.C.S is double board certified in General Surgery as well as Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. He has been a licensed physician for over 20 years and has been in private practice in Southern California for over 14 years. Dr. Pousti completed his Plastic Surgery training at Harvard with world-renowned surgeons at The Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts.
Dr. Pousti specializes in breast surgery, body contouring, facial rejuvenation and all types of revisionary surgery. He is happy to see you in one of his Southern California offices (San Diego and/or Inland Empire). For more information please contact (619) 466-8851 or visit http://www.poustiplasticsurgery.com
