Back to Blog

Choosing breast implants can be one of the most exciting parts of your breast augmentation procedure. It can be a little overwhelming, given there are many options to consider when choosing implant type. At Tucson Plastic Surgery, our board-certified plastic surgeons prefer Sientra® implants, and will review your options in terms of implant type, shape, and size based on your anatomy and cosmetic goals. Below are some highlights on why Sientra® implants are Tucson Plastic Surgery’s preferred breast implant option.

What Are Sientra Implants?

Sientra® silicone gel implants, also known as “gummy bear implants,” offer the most advanced silicone gel technology. They are made of a durable thick silicone shell and are filled with a high strength cohesive form of silicone gel that holds it shape. These key features give Sientra® silicone gel implants a more natural look and feel, with much less implant visibility and rippling compared to less cohesive gels. For patients who want the latest technology and most natural breast augmentation, Sientra® silicone gel “gummy bear” implants are a wonderful option.

What are the Benefits of Sientra Implants?

Sientra® silicone gel “gummy bear” implants offer the latest and most advanced medical grade silicone gel technology compared to traditional silicone or saline implants.


Sientra® silicone gel implants are among the safest breast implant options available today. In fact, a recent 10 year core study demonstrated that Sientra® silicone gel implants perform exceptionally well over time with the lowest rates of rupture and re-operation, as well as low rates of capsular contracture.  During your consultation, your board certified plastic surgeon with review with you in detail a Sientra® patient safety checklist which outlines the potential risks of silicone gel breast implants. This safety measure is done before surgery to ensure that you understand everything there is to know about implant safety and that all your questions and concerns are answered.
