Q: Gummy bear implants vs. Sientra implants

A: Gummy Bear Breast Implants

“Gummy Bear” breast implant is a popular term for form stable shaped breast implants.  There are three manufactures of breast implants FDA approved in the US and they all produce gummy bear shaped gel breast implants.

I prefer to use the Sientra shaped implant because, in my opinion, they have the best texture surface shell and less chance of gel shell internal separation, and best overall clinical results. All three manufacturers have similar warranties, however only Sientra also offers to replace the textured implants for free if the patient gets capsular contracture within the first 2 years post-operative (if this is their first breast augmentation)
