In the world of plastic and reconstructive surgery, staying at the forefront of innovation and research is vital. Dr. Kamakshi R. Zeidler, a prominent figure in the field, continues to prove her dedication to excellence through her recent accomplishments. In this blog post, we’ll delve into Dr. Zeidler’s enlightening interview with the Silicon Valley Business Journal and her groundbreaking publications, ‘Safety and Efficacy of the Sientra Silicone Gel Round and Shaped Breast Implants: 6-Year Results of the US Post-Approval Study,’ published in the Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and ‘Long-Term Safety of Textured and Smooth Breast Implants’ in the Aesthetic Surgery Journal.
The Interview: Silicon Valley Business Journal
In a recent interview with the Silicon Valley Business Journal, Dr. Kamakshi R. Zeidler shared her insights into the world of plastic surgery and aesthetic medicine. Her passion for the field, dedication to patient safety, and innovative approaches were all highlighted in this engaging discussion. Dr. Zeidler’s commitment to patient care and her pioneering techniques were evident as she discussed the challenges and opportunities within the industry.
One key takeaway from the interview was Dr. Zeidler’s excitement for a new breast implant coming soon to the United States, designed by a Costa Rica-based Establishment Labs. She shared that their Motiva breast implant line is coming to the market with technology designed from a women’s health perspective. The future of their integrated sensor technology also has tremendous possible applications. “Don’t think of a new breast implant. Think of an iPhone. The sensor could have the capabilities of monitoring your heart rate and temperature over time,” Dr. Zeidler explained. As the founding member of Establishment Labs’ FemTech Advisory Board, Dr. Zeidler travelled to Costa Rica to speak at the grand opening of their innovation center. “I look forward to working with the company as they prepare for the US launch of their implants, and with the research and development team to develop novel products that meet the needs of the modern woman looking for high tech and less invasive solutions for breast aesthetics,” she shares.
Dr. Z also shared her excitement about new technology from Silicon Valley-based company, TurnBio, where they’re working with epigenetic reprogramming. “It’s about being able to look at aging as a factor and not just help people look younger, but actually feel younger. It’s early, but the idea is can we reprogram your cells to think and actually act younger.” How exciting would it be to one day have an injectable treatment that reverses the greying of the hair?

Publication: “Safety and Efficacy of the Sientra Silicone Gel Round and Shaped Breast Implants: 6-Year Results of the US Post-Approval Study”
Dr. Zeidler’s dedication to advancing the field of plastic surgery and aesthetic medicine extends to her research efforts. Her most recent publication in the Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons is a testament to her commitment to evidence-based practice.
The publication, titled “Safety and Efficacy of the Sientra Silicone Gel Round and Shaped Breast Implants: 6-Year Results of the US Post-Approval Study,” represents a significant milestone in breast implant research. In an industry where safety and long-term outcomes are of paramount importance, this study offers valuable insights.
In this comprehensive study, Dr. Zeidler and her colleagues evaluated the safety and efficacy of Sientra Silicone Gel Round and Shaped Breast Implants over a six-year period. This study looks at the 6-year period of Sientra Breast Implants use in the United States after the approval of their implants (as mandated by the FDA) and shows that real world data backs up what was found in the original 10-year trial to gain approval for use in the US.
Publication: ‘Long-Term Safety of Textured and Smooth Breast Implants’
Dr. Zeidler is also an esteemed author in the publication, ‘Long-Term Safety of Textured and Smooth Breast Implants,’ for the Aesthetic Surgery Journal we, which was awarded “Best Paper of the Year.” This collaborative effort highlights Dr. Zeidler’s commitment to advancing the understanding of the risks and benefits associated with various breast implant textures. Her contributions to this publication contribute significantly to the ongoing discourse on breast implant safety.
