Sientra Inc is launching its Capsular Contracture Care program, or C3, a first-of-its-kind protection program for women seeking primary breast augmentation.

The company is so confident that its textured breast implants featuring TRUE Texture™ are less likely to cause this vexing complication that women who receive any shape, size, or style of Sientra’s textured breast implants featuring TRUE Texture™ will be eligible for a free product replacement if they develop capsular contracture of the breast requiring revision surgery within 2 years of implantation.

A study published in the November 2013 issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, “Risk Factor Analysis for Capsular Contracture in Sientra’s Silimed-Brand Round Smooth and TRUE Texture Implants,” showed a statistically significant reduction in capsular contracture with TRUE Texture implants, compared to smooth implants. The study looked at a variety of factors affecting capsular contracture rates in Sientra’s US clinical studies. This analysis includes 2,560 patients (5,109 implants) at 34 clinical sites through 5 years.
