The Food and Drug Administration today cleared Sientra Inc.’s silicone breast implants for use in the U.S., adding another competitor to versions of the product already offered by Allergan Inc. (AGN) and Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) unit Mentor Worldwide LLC. Sientra will be the third manufacturer of silicone breast implants in America given the current US FDA regulations.
The latest approval comes after the FDA in August said it will allow silicone implants to remain on the U.S. market while manufacturers work to boost enrollment rates in required long-term studies.
The agency has said women receiving silicone-gel breast implants experience frequent complications and sometimes need additional surgery to fix or replace them, but recent studies haven’t shown any unexpected or new safety concerns for the existing implants on the market.
The FDA based its Sientra approval on three years of clinical data from 1,788 participants. The latest approval permits breast-augmentation surgery in women at least 22 years old as well as reconstructive procedures for women of any age.
“Data on these and other approved silicone gel-filled breast implants continue to demonstrate a reasonable assurance of safety and effectiveness,” said William Maisel, deputy director for science at the FDA’s Center for Devices and Radiological Health.
The agency will also require that Sientra run post-approval studies judging the long-term safety and effectiveness of the implants as well as the risk of rare diseases among women using them.
Sientra founder and Chief Executive Hani Zeini helped launch the privately held company after an earlier stint at Inamed Corp., the breast-implant maker later acquired by Allergan.
As a plastic surgeon who performs many breast augmentation surgeries, it is exciting to have another brand available on the market to choose from! Competition is a good thing in the world of medical devices and I am glad that women will have a third option when it comes to silicone gel breast implants.

With an 88% increase in male Plastic Surgery procedures in the last 15 years, you may have noticed that it has become more acceptable and common for men to keep up with their appearances just as their wives have done for years. You may have also noticed that couples like Brad Pitt and Angenlina Jolie, Jay-Z and Beyonce, and the Beckhams continue to look refreshed and even younger as the years roll by. It seems that the new trend is for couples to have Plastic Surgery procedures together.
In the younger years, Liposuction is common for couples to undergo together to maintain their figures. As the couples age together, electing for couples Face Lifts is very common. Often times, the wife will go first and then coach her husband through the healing process based on her own experience. Dr. Walden recently appeared on Good Day Austin on Fox 7, an Austin News Station, to discuss this. See what she had to say about Good Day Austin’s anchor Joe Bickett:
There is one thing I can say for sure about 2011 so far: Mother Nature is not a happy woman! She has been wrecking havoc all over the world and these days no one is safe from her wrath. I never thought I would be telling my kids one day that I saw a hurricane and an earthquake (AND in the same week) in New York but it’s true. Records are being broken all over with temperatures, rain fall (or lack thereof), and magnitudes and directions of storms. It is a crazy world these days so we all should be watching the news and weather channels to be prepared, no matter where you live.
Dr. Walden, the true Texan woman that she is, wrote an article this week to help educate people in Texas (especially Austin) on how to handle that terrible heat safely:
I hope for everyone’s sake that Mother Nature gets a nap, or chocolate, or something to make her happier!
Dr. Walden recently spoke to CBS News about the 26 year old British woman who ruptured a breast implant playing paintball. While paintball is be a very fun and exciting sport, it must be known that you can get seriously hurt while playing it (regardless of whether or not you have breast implants). The article says that the paintball was traveling at 190 miles per hour! Clearly I think people who play this sport should wear protective gear to cover any part of them they would not want hurt or damaged…real or not!
See what Dr. Walden had to say about it:
Have fun but be careful out there!
Rumor has it that Rumer Willis has gotten breast implants. Lets take a look. Below is a picture of Willis from 2009, followed by a photo of the 22 year old that was taken several weeks ago.
Because of the difference in size, an obvious increase of at least two cup sizes, I believe that it is likely that Rumer has undergone breast augmentation. I think that the results are great - natural looking and a perfect size for her frame. Her breasts not only look fuller, but also lifted, in comparison with the first picture where her breasts show signs of ptosis, or sagging. Many speculate that Rumer’s mom Demi must have one of the greatest plastic surgeons on speed dial because of the way she seems to age in reverse - constantly looking younger in a natural way. So it comes as no surprise that Rumer would have equally excellent and natural results. Kudos to her doctor for a job well done!
Everyone has been talking about the recent wedding between Green Mile actor Doug Hutchison and aspiring singer Courtney Alexis Stodden and the controversy just seems endless. He is 51 and she is 16, which makes most stomaches turn (mine included). Not only are these two trying to convince everyone their love is real but Courtney is claiming her breasts are as well. I’d say the likelihood of them being real is the same as this marriage lasting longer than a paper cut.
I can’t decide what is worse: the ridiculous age difference, the fact that a 16 year old could look like that, or the hundreds of extremely inappropriate pictures of this girl that are all over the internet! The only thing I can say I’m sure of about this situation is that her breasts are not real and anyone can see that from the picture below. I think she has had filler put in her lips as well. It’s not that they’re abnormally big, but they protrude unnaturally…which I guess is her theme.
If that one isn’t enough proof, look at this before picture:
Hollywoodlife.com asked Dr. Walden for her professional opinion on the matter:
Whether you’re ready or not, summer’s here and we all know what that means…bathing suit season is officially back! Now as an all female staff, we know what it’s like to dread that statement. We all have our problem areas that we are uncomfortable with and bathing suits leave little to the imagination. This year, since we want our patients to be confident and happy when they take off their cover up, we decided to do a special for breast augmentation for the summer.

Make that “someday” you’ve been talking about today…
Our patient of the month for March is Teneia! After coming to the decision to have a breast augmentation, Teneia did her research and came to Dr. Walden for it. She wanted a natural look and she looks and feels great! She is so happy with her results, she spoke with LXNY about why she wanted to have the procedure done (video below). Teneia talks about the right reason to have plastic surgery done: she did it for herself. She is a confident and beautiful young woman and we are so happy to have been part of her experience. See what she had to say about it…enjoy!
