Do Round Sientra and Mentor Implants Post Op Results Looks Any Different?
Sientra Breast Implants
I use both Sientra and Mentor, depending on the characteristics of each patient. Personally I can't tell the difference between the two implants postop. I couldn't begin to tell from photos who had which. You would be operated for revisional surgery, so many factors come into play. I would simply prioritize dimensional analysis as is discueed by Dr. Smith, below. The specific characteristics of what you require would be most important. All the best in your quest, "Dr. Joe"

Sientra vs. Mentor Implant Post-op Look
To keep it simple, let's stay with Sientra and review your options. With a breast diameter of 13 cm some surgeons would say that you are where you should be in terms of shaped implants from Sientra. But they do make bigger round smooth and textured implants that would work well in terms of giving you a larger breast with a fuller look up the top. The Sientra high profile round implant product line has two implants with a diameter around 13 cm and the volumes are 495 cc and 545 cc. I would think that either of these implants would result in your goal look.
I hope that helps.

Sientra vs Mentor
There are predominantly three breast implant manufacturers. Each has a dimension associated with the number of cc in their breast implants. I usually sized patient's based on breast width, skin quality and assessing their expectations. Some surgeons are comfortable with 1 manufacturer because they know how the implant behaves both in the short-term and in the long-term. I am not sure it makes a difference which implant manufacturer you choose but more important that your surgeon is comfortable with using that type of implant. hope this helps!
Very hard to advise via the internet. But I would use UHP Mentors as a choice in the 450 cc range. But again hard to advise via the net.
