Gummy Bear Breast Implants

Gummy Bear Breast Implants

The latest innovation in breast implants is one that is filled with a cohesive silicone gel.  Known as the "gummy bear" breast implant due to its gummy-bear, candy-like consistency. This new type of breast implant will tend to hold together in the event of a rupture.  Gummy bear breast implants look and feel natural and are available in implant sizes resulting in a D cup, DD cup, or even DDD cup.  Be sure to talk with your doctor about gummy bear breast implants and their benefits.



The Basics Of "Gummy Bear" Breast Implants

By A Aaronson

While you may be aware of more traditional saline and other liquid filled breast implants, you might not have heard of the latest innovation in breast enhancement which is commonly referred to as "gummy bear" breast implants. These special high-strength silicone gel implants get their name from the fact that when they are cut they resemble the popular gummy bear candies in consistency. These devices are made of a special very dense, high-strength silicone. Gummy bear implants are comprised of a solidified gel. Hence there are no chances of leakage in the event of rupture causing connective tissue disorders.

Why Choose the Gummy Bear Option over Traditional Saline?

The gummy bear options are becoming more and more popular as the choice for women looking for breast augmentation. The reason for this is that the newer implants are designed to hold their shape better than those which utilize saline. Additionally, they are much less likely to shift, wrinkle, fold or ripple over time which can otherwise happen with saline implants.

Gummy Bear breast implants hold their shape much better than saline and thus remain in a more upright position over time. This means that you will see much less sag over time. And, you will not have to deal with any sloshing sounds which can happen with the saline alternative. It is indeed a promising alternative to the standard silicone and saline filled implants, but being cohesive in nature there are limited incision choices associated with the procedure. However, the chances of scaring are greater with the gummy bear option but the long term effects of the implant to maintain and keep breasts upright is worth it.

Do Gummy Bear Breast Implants Feel Natural?

The newer gummy bear type breast implants feel very natural to the touch. Where saline implants when overfilled can feel hard, the newer gel models do not have this problem. Women who have had them installed report that they feel very natural and are much closer in feel to a natural breast.

Are The Newer Breast Implants Safe?

The maker of these new devices, Silimed, holds an ISO 9001 certificate which shows that they meet industry standards for manufacturing these medical devices. Additionally, they also have a perfect FDA rating for safety to date. The common consensus between plastic surgeons is that the new devices are safe and effective for breast augmentation.

What Sizes are Available?

The new implants come in all sizes up to a cup size of "DDD". By working with your Board Certified Plastic Surgeon you can determine the right size for your needs.
