All About “Gummy Bear” Breast Implants
“Gummy bear” breast implants is the popular name for the newest generation of breast implants. Also known as gel, memory gel or cohesive implants, these implants are the most natural-looking and feeling implants on the market for breast augmentation surgery.
In our blog post Silicone vs. Saline, we discussed the difference between these two types of breast implants. Both can feel real, but most women agree: silicone feels more like a natural breast. Today’s new generation of breast implants mean you don’t have to sacrifice safety for a natural looking and feeling result. Gummy bear implants are unsurpassed in safety, and most patients experience fewer complications with this type of silicone breast implant. Like a gummy bear, they are a single form, soft yet uniform. In the event of a rupture, the silicone remains intact and will not “leak” into the patient’s body. Gummy bear implants come in a variety of shapes, so they can be tailored to fit your body.
At Port City Plastic Surgery, Board Certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Brian Widenhouse uses gummy bear breast implants in the majority of our breast augmentation surgeries.
