When it comes to augmenting the breasts, patients have a lot of options to choose from. Our team of professionals can walk patients through the different types of implants available to help them select one that fits their needs, budget, and the end results they desire. One of the many options is that of the gummy bear implant.
What is a gummy bear implant made of?
The gummy bear implant is a teardrop-shaped breast implant that was introduced in the mid-2000s. This is a breast implant that has an outer silicone shell, but is filled with a highly cohesive gel. This makes these implants perfect for women who are interested in restoring volume more than increasing size, as they maintain their shape longer than any other implant on the market. The way they are placed also ensures a natural look to the breast mound when placed by an experienced plastic surgeon.
What are the benefits of the gummy bear implant?
Dr. Walt Sweeney of The Bougainvillea Clinique finds that these implants offer various benefits for patients to consider when choosing a breast implant for their procedure. Gummy bear implants:
- Retain their shape and volume better due to the gel
- Can retain shape even if the shells are broke
- Are best for those seeking more volume versus increased size
- Look and feel more like natural breasts
- Are best for patients over the age of 22
- Have a reduced risk of capsular contracture
- Have a textured surface, reducing shifting and rotation
