We respect your privacy and recognize the need for appropriate protection and management of any personally identifiable information you may share with us (the phrase “personally identifiable information” or “personal information” means any information by which you can be identified, such as your name, address, telephone number, etc.). The purpose of this Privacy Statement is to inform you how we may use personally identifiable information or personal information collected from you when you visit our website and the choices you have regarding our use of, and your ability to review and correct, the information collected. Because we may revise our privacy policies from time to time, you should periodically visit this page to review the then current Privacy Statement.
How We Collect Information
In general, you can visit many of our website pages without telling us who you are or revealing any personally identifiable information. We may track the Internet domain address from which people visit our website and analyze this data for trends and statistics, but individual users will remain anonymous, unless you voluntarily tell us who you are.
There may be times when we ask you to provide certain personal information about yourself, such as your name, address, telephone number, email address, etc. Whether or not to provide such information is completely your own choice; we collect only the personal information that you provide to us. If you choose not to provide the information we request, you may be unable to access certain services, offers, and content on our website.
How We Use the Information We Collect
We use the information we automatically receive from your web browser to see which pages you visit within our website. We can then develop statistics that are helpful to understanding how our website is used by our visitors. This statistical data is interpreted by us in our continuing effort to present website content that visitors are seeking in the format they find most helpful. When we receive personally identifiable information, we may use it for reasonable business purposes, such as contacting you, via email or regular mail, to provide you with information we believe may be of interest. If you email us, you are voluntarily releasing information to us. We will use your email address to respond to you.
Third-Party Use of Information
We will not sell, share, or otherwise distribute your personally identifiable information to third parties except as provided herein. Specifically, personally identifiable information may occasionally be transferred to third parties who act on our behalf, or in connection with our business, for further processing in accordance with the purposes for which the data was originally collected. Where disclosure of personally identifiable information to a third party is likely or necessary, further explanation may be provided, where appropriate, at such collection points as to the intended use of the data. We will require that such third parties protect the information and, where appropriate, we will contractually require them to process data transferred only for the purposes expressly authorized by us.
Because of the nature of the Internet, we may transmit the information to another country, but remaining within our system, for purposes other than direct marketing, such as for storage, or because of where our servers are located. We may also use the information to investigate security breaches or cooperate with authorities pursuant to a legal matter. We may remove the personally identifiable information and use the other information for historical, statistical, or scientific purposes. Our website contains links to other websites. Be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of other websites. We encourage you to review the privacy statements of any websites that you visit through a link on our website.

Physician Safety Information
Sientra breast implants are indicated for breast augmentation in women at least 22 years old and for breast reconstruction. Breast implant surgery is contraindicated in women with active infection anywhere in their body, with existing cancer or precancerous conditions who have not received adequate treatment for those conditions, and who are currently pregnant or nursing. Prior to use, plastic surgeons should review all risk information, which is found in the Directions for Use. Key complications associated with the use of silicone gel breast implants include capsular contracture, implant removal, rupture, and reoperation. The Directions for Use and detailed information regarding the risks and benefits of Sientra breast implants can be found at sientra.com.
Breast Tissue Expanders
Sientra breast tissue expanders are indicated for breast reconstruction. They are temporary expanders and are not intended for long-term or permanent implantation. Sientra breast tissue expanders are contraindicated in patients with active infection or existing carcinoma at the intended expansion site. Tissue Expanders with integral magnetic ports should not be used in patients who already have implanted devices subject to magnetic field interference or in patients where an MRI may be needed. Prior to use, plastic surgeons should review the Instructions for Use and detailed information regarding the risks and benefits of Sientra breast tissue expanders, located at sientra.com.

Social Media Community Guidelines
Sientra envisions a world where everybody's full beauty can be realized. As we pursue our vision, we recognize that, together, we are advancing what is possible in medical aesthetics and, in turn, opening up more ways to experience and reach many states of inner and outer beauty.
We encourage our social media community members to engage in discussions with us. Please feel free to ask questions, comment, share our posts, and discuss. When you do, we ask that you make sure your contributions are respectful, courteous, and constructive.
We accept that disagreements will happen. However, we will not tolerate when disagreements turn offensive. Please do not insult other community members or be disrespectful. When you disagree with something someone has said, please say so in a polite manner, and please provide sources for any information you cite, if you can.
To put it another way:
We will not tolerate threatening, abusive, harassing, intimidating, libelous, defamatory, obscene, vulgar, pornographic, profane, indecent, illegal or unlawful content. We will not tolerate spam, which we define as promotion of commercial interests or repeated posting of the same content.
Posts violating these requirements may be removed at any time and without notice. We also ask that you keep conversations on-topic with the original post. Our community members normally get along very well, and discussions can veer in a number of interesting directions. We ask that you help us keep focus by providing meaningful, relevant content to the members of our community.
This page is intended to answer questions and provide support for patients, physicians and the community. However, some questions really need the attention of medical experts. When questions get very technical, or when responding publicly may violate your privacy, we may send you a private message or direct you to a phone number to speak to a professional to address your concerns.
This page is monitored during business hours only, so please allow 24 hours for us to respond to your comments.
And, as always, in case of an emergency, dial 911.
