Kovanda Plastic Surgery, offering a comprehensive range of enhancements for the face, body, and breasts, is proud to announce it has been one of the only practices to offer Sientra’s new high-strength, cohesive silicone gel breast implants well before its wide release. Also known as anatomical implants, gummy bear implants, or gummy implants, the practice’s patients in Minneapolis and St. Paul can benefit from the many advantages this advanced silicone technology implant offers, and the experience the practice has gained from offering this product for several months. Testament to his extensive knowledge, training, and leadership in the field of breast enhancement surgery, Dr. Christopher J. Kovanda was handpicked by the manufacturer to be one of the first surgeons in North America to offer the large size of the anatomically shaped implants to his patients. Consistent with the practice’s commitment to implementing the latest and most promising advancements in plastic surgery, the gummy bear implant complements a variety of plastic surgery products and procedures. Unlike traditional, rounded silicone implants, Sientra implants are contoured to more closely resemble the shape of a natural breast, making it an ideal choice for women seeking a subtle enhancement that blends seamlessly with their natural body type. And thanks to a denser gel, the implants are better able to retain their shape while minimizing the risk of leakage or rupture. Benefits of the Sientra implant include: · Natural, tear-drop shape, creating a more natural-looking breast · Soft, flexible feel and natural-feeling weight · Greater ability to retain shape · Lower risk of “rippling” found with traditional saline implants · Leak-resistant cohesive gel lowers risk of complications In addition to plumping patients’ curves, gummy bear implants are ideally shaped for use in reconstructive cases. Breast reconstruction patients have been pleased with the more natural shape the implant offers after substantial loss of breast tissue when compared to rounded silicone implants. Sculpted to meet any cosmetic or reconstructive need, the Sientra implant’s variety of shapes and sizes ensures a perfect fit for any cosmetic surgery patient.
