Questions to ask Your Plastic Surgeon.

When it comes to breast augmentation, choosing the right surgeon is as important as choosing the right implant. That's why Sientra is the only company that makes its implants available exclusively through board-certified (or board-eligible) plastic surgeons, whose intense specialty training helps them elevate their surgical skills and aesthetic judgment. Ask your surgeon if he or she uses Sientra implants. If the answer is "yes," you know they've got the credentials you're looking for.

Talking to more than one surgeon can help you choose the one who best meets your needs.

Remember, Sientra implants are only available through board-certified (or board-eligible) plastic surgeons.
