Dr. Steve Laverson uses only FDA approved breast implants, and there are currently three brands available for breast augmentation, breast lift with augmentation, and breast augmentation revision. Similarities between these brands, Allergan (Natrelle Collection), Mentor, and Sientra, are much greater than their differences. All three companies produce safe, durable, high quality breast implants. You will see and feel samples of implants at your consultation and understand their soft texture and tenacity. There are fine shades of difference however, so depending on your preferences, your body, and other aspects of your situation, Dr. Laverson may recommend a particular brand of implant.
All three manufacturers produce silicone gel implants with smooth (glossy) surfaces and silicone gel implants with textured (matte) surfaces for capsular ingrowth and implant immobilization. All three manufacturers offer both round (symmetric) and shaped (asymmetric, “pear” shaped) implants with variable features for specific applications. All three companies market implants with an impervious, pliable, solid silicone outer implant shell and a cohesive or highly cohesive gel filling that has a natural texture and resists extrusion. All three manufacturers offer a roughly equivalent warranty against device failure only, and maintain a device tracking program with a record of your implant catalog and serial number. The cost of each brand breast implant is similar. Distribution of Sientra implants is restricted to Board Certified Plastic Surgeons only. Mentor and Allergan offer saline implants in the United States market at this time. Mentor manufactures exclusively in the United States. Sizes available for each style of implant, precise implant shape, and other factors determine which brand implant, if any, Dr. Laverson will advise for you.
Dr. Laverson is truly gifted! He knew EXACTLY what I was asking for and he delivered those results flawlessly. I am so happy with my new breasts. He was very attentive and professional. I knew I was in good hands! It was a huge surgery for me and now that I’m in recovery, he still checks on me and is closely monitoring my progress. He is a perfectionist and his work shows for it! 🙂 I would recommend anyone interested in breast augmentation to go talk to Dr. Laverson. You won’t be disappointed!! … Stacey R.
