Sientra Implants Study
Dr. Harrington Appointed Medical Director of Breast Implant Study
As a leader in the field of plastic surgery, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jennifer Harrington prioritizes staying up-to-date and involved with the latest research and developments. Most recently, she was appointed as medical director for the longest clinical study to date on the effects of high-strength silicone gel breast implants. Her leadership in the area of women’s health and safety has benefited not only her own patients in the Twin Cities area, but also women nationwide.
As a firm believer in delivering the highest quality cosmetic services, Dr. Harrington has used Sientra products since the beginning of her practice. Dr. Harrington’s patients who took part in the study between 2002 and 2007 were overwhelmingly happy with both the product and their results.
The Online Annual Sientra Implant Study (O.A.S.I.S.) was designed to assess long-term outcomes of silicone gel breast implants. The study collected extensive health data from participants who had either round or teardrop shaped “gummy bear” breast implants, filled with a high-strength cohesive gel.
Sientra gummy bear implants offer women the advantage of maintaining their shape regardless of potential ruptures or other complications. These implants also offer a natural feel that mimics the texture of breast tissue. Sientra offers gummy bear implants in either round or anatomical form so women can select the implant that will work best with their natural anatomy to create the perfect outcome.
The study included both breast augmentation and breast reconstruction patients who chose high-strength silicone gel implants. Dr. Harrington reimbursed her patients who completed surveys to assist in the collection of thorough and accurate data. Her patients are also required to revisit her yearly for up to 10 years to ensure that they continue to enjoy the best results possible and optimal breast health.
