Sientra, Inc. (Nasdaq: SIEN) announced the acquisition of a complete portfolio of premium, differentiated tissue expanders from industry pioneer Specialty Surgical Products, Inc. (SSP). With this acquisition, Sientra adds to its product offering the AlloX2 and Dermaspan™ lines of breast tissue expanders, in addition to the Softspan™ line of extremity expanders.

Jeffrey Nugent, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Sientra, said, “This acquisition represents another important step in building the Sientra platform and positioning the business for future growth in the $235 million U.S. tissue expander and gel implant breast reconstruction market as we look to further strengthen our efforts in this area. It is a natural portfolio extension for Sientra and provides a premium expander line to build upon in a market where the standard of care often begins with breast tissue expansion and follows with silicone gel implants.”

Mr. Nugent continued, “In addition, this acquisition will enable us to leverage and expand our sales distribution while broadening our product portfolio with a well-established line of expanders. In the case of the dual port AlloX2, we now have a truly innovative solution designed to address post-surgical seromas and infection with its patented and novel drainage system. With early promising clinical performance and results confirmed by Key Opinion Leaders, we are confident in the value of this product portfolio and look forward to building on these results as we continue to expand the clinical evidence behind these products.”

Sientra will continue to engage SSP’s highest performing independent sales agents who will be dedicated to tissue expanders, while Sientra’s existing PSCs will sell across the entire Sientra product portfolio.
