Fort Lauderdale plastic surgeon, Dr. Tracey H. Stokes has been selected by Sientra to train surgeons in the use of the company's cohesive gel anatomic shaped breast implants, commonly known as "gummy bear" implants.
"Only three surgeons in the entire country are trainers at this point. So, it really is a huge honor," said Dr. Stokes. Three surgeons, Dr. William Adams, Dr. Michael Fiorello, and Dr. Stokes held their first preceptorships the third week in September. Dr. Stokes had the largest, most well attended preceptorship. Ten surgeons from throughout the southeastern United States attended the educational event for breast augmentation.
"On the whole, the event was a huge success. I strongly believe that intimate preceptorships like this are much more educationally beneficial than podium presentations at a large meeting," said Dr. Stokes. "In general, plastic surgeons can learn more in a setting like this than they have since residency."
