New Silicone Breast Implants on the Market

Sientra New Silicone Breast Implant FDA Approval

Sientra New Silicone Breast Implant FDA Approval

This week the FDA announced approval of Sientra Silimed new silicone breast implants for use in the United States. The Silimed breast implant is the only silicone breast implant to be approved in the United States since the FDA approved the use of Mentor’s and Allergan’s silicone breast implants for cosmetic breast surgery in November 2006. Like the approval in 2006, the Silimed line of breast implants was approved for use for cosmetic breast enhancement (in women 22 years and older) and for breast reconstruction. The Silimed line consists of both smooth and textured implants in moderate and high profile designs.
