Top NYC Plastic Surgeon Dr. Joshua Hyman Now Using FDA Approved Sientra Implants
New York, NY, November 02, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Dr. Joshua Hyman is proud to announce that he will now be using Sientra breast implants, which he believes is one of the best implant options on the current market for breast augmentation surgery.
Sientra cohesive silicone gel implants are often referred to as "Gummy Bear" implants and were approved by the FDA in March of 2012 but have been used around the world for many years. The implants received this catchy nickname because they are form stable and retain shape when cut in half, much like the chewy, gummy bear candies. This “gummy bear” shape allows the implants to retain their form whether a patient is standing upright or fully reclining, which nearly eliminates any chance of rippling or folding of the breast implants within the shell.
Sientra implants offer important benefits that Dr. Hyman is excited to share with his patients. “The large majority of my breast augmentation patients are looking for a natural look with low complication rate,” explains Dr. Hyman, “Sientra implants offer both of these benefits that have been proved in clinical trials.” Studies have shown that Sientra implants have lower rupture rates, no instances of rotation, less capsular contractures and an overall natural feel. Additionally, Sientra breast implants are leak resistant, even when twisted, stretched or sliced in half.
The highly resistant, cohesive silicone gel that makes up Sientra implants closely resembles breast tissue, which results in their natural feel. “I have currently performed a few breast augmentation surgeries with Sientra implants,” says Dr. Hyman, “Every patient that have received them comes back to me raving about how natural they feel- to the point that people do not even realize they had work done on their breasts.”
Dr. Hyman currently uses a few other manufacturers of implants, but many do not compare to the selection that Sientra offers. Sientra offers an assortment of options to fulfill the needs of the given patient. These include a smooth or textured shell, teardrop or round shape, and an array of base conformations that dictate the degree of projection. The variety of options allows for a customized fit, which is another reason that the implants have such a natural look and feel.
Improvements in the technology of breast implants is correlated to the growth in demand for breast augmentation surgery. More than 300,000 American women opt to undergo breast augmentation surgery every year, which is an increase of 45% since 2000. In terms of implant type, the most prominent growth has been seen in the usage of silicone implants. Sientra is considered to be one of the most technologically advanced silicone implant provider on the market, which has resulted in their increased popularity amongst plastic surgeons and patients. These unique implants are also only available to board certified plastic surgeons such as Dr. Joshua Hyman. “I speculate that many women with older implant models will be looking to replace them with these newer products,” says Dr. Hyman, “I feel confident that I am offering one of the best options to my patients with Sientra implants.”
