Is seri silk safe?

Seri is safe.
Thanks for posting your question. I am happy to try and help you. It is important to remember that a board certified plastic surgeon will be your best resource when it comes to an accurate assessment of your situation, and concerns.
Having said that, Seri is safe. You should go read about it on the Seri web site.

I would not recommend it.
Seri was instructed to stop promoting use for breast applications, as it was not approved for that use by the FDA. Many surgeons have not had good luck with it's use in breast applications. I used it in a number of cases and initially thought it was promising, since it is cheaper than biologic dermis (Alloderm, Flex HD), but I had a range of problems in more than half of the patients and no longer use it. Google the FDA website for more details.
