Form stable breast implants, commonly known as gummy bear implants, offer a number of unique advantages when used for breast reconstruction. Firm yet supple, these implants are capable of producing a more natural look and feel than other options. They are also much less likely to have aesthetic imperfections such as ripples and wrinkles, allowing them to produce long-lasting, incredibly pleasing results.
Washington, DC breast surgeon Dr. Roberta Gartside is pleased to offer Sientra™ breast implants both for reconstruction and augmentation procedures. These gummy bear implants have been show to retain their shape and definition long after placement, even in rare cases of puncture, making them an attractive option for many of our patients.
As a board-certified plastic surgeon and breast cancer survivor, Dr. Gartside strives to offer the safest, most advanced forms of reconstruction possible. Gummy bear implants allow for ideal reconstruction for many women, but are not the perfect fit for all.
Dr. Gartside offers a range of reconstructive procedures, enabling her to meet the specific needs of each patient. During your consultation she will discuss all of your options to you to help you choose which one is best for your needs.
