About Gummy Bear Implants
Gummy bear implants contain a cohesive, comparatively firm silicone gel with a consistency reminiscent of gummy bear candies. Gummy bear implants are teardrop shaped. When the are placed within the breast, they create a perky, youthful shape. These implants offer many benefits that can make them an excellent choice, depending upon your goals:
- These implants retain their shape better than silicone or saline implants.
- Implants stay more cohesive after rupture than saline and traditional silicone implants.
- Gummy bear implants have a unique teardrop shape that mimics the look of a natural breast.
- Gummy bear implants come in a variety of sizes and shapes to meet each woman's unique aesthetic goals.
- These implants are great for breast reconstruction because they add not only volume, but shape to breasts.
It is important to note that gummy bear implants always retain their shape. As such, they require larger incisions than saline implants. Also, if they happen to shift, they will drastically alter the shape of the breast, and will require revision surgery. On the other hand, round saline and silicone implants can shift within the breast without changing the shape of the breast. Gummy bear implants can be textured to prevent shifting. You can also greatly increase the likelihood of satisfying long-term results by choosing an experienced surgeon to perform your breast augmentation.
Gummy Bear Implant Candidates
Whether you need reconstructive surgery, enlargement, or augmentation for improved appearance, gummy bear implants are FDA-approved for women age 22 and over. Candidates for these and other implants should be in good general health and able to undergo surgery.
