Breast implant manufacturer makes finding a highly qualified plastic surgeon easier by only selling its implants to board certified plastic surgeons.
Choosing a plastic surgeon who is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery is an important step in getting the best breast augmentation result you can.
A new silicone gel breast implant by Sientra will making finding a highly qualified surgeon even easier; its new implants will only be distributed to plastic surgeons who are Board Certified.
The release of the new silicone gel breast implant was announced at the last meeting of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons in Vancouver.
Sientra is not a new company, but it is a new competitor with Allergan and Mentor in the breast implant market. Allergan and Mentor continue to sell breast implants to doctors of any specialty, including ear-nose-throat specialists, OB-GYNs, family practitioners, and general surgeons.
By contrast, Sientra will pre-screen the surgeons whom it allows to use their breast implants. By excluding doctors who are not plastic surgeons, and plastic surgeons who are not board certified, Sientra ensures that patients who receive their implants will be in the care of highly skilled and educated plastic surgeons.
This exclusivity has been implemented as part of a commitment to the safety of patients and the quality of aesthetic plastic surgery.
Sientra also offers what is currently the best breast implant warranty available: an automatic lifetime warranty plus $3,600 toward surgery and anesthesia.
Dr. Jed Horowitz, MD, FACS is a board certified plastic surgeon in Newport Beach and Huntington Beach. He looks forward to offering the new Sientra implants to his patients, which are extremely cohesive, similar to “Gummy Bear” implants. Not only are the implants of excellent quality, but the fact that Dr. Horowitz is approved to offer them corroborates his skill, qualifications, and excellence as a plastic surgeon.
