What Are Gummy Bear Implants?

The term “gummy bear implant” may sound a bit strange at first, but these FDA-improved implants are an exciting option for many patients seeking breast augmentation.

What Are Gummy Bear Implants?

Gummy bear implants are so nicknamed because they have a similar quality and feel to the gummy bear candies. With a highly-cohesive silicone gel inside and a thicker, layered silicone shell on the outside, gummy bear implants can retain their shape even if the shell were to break. Gummy bear implants also have a distinct tear-drop shape, which is closer to a woman’s natural breast shape for a very natural look.

The Benefits of Gummy Bear Implants

A unique feature of a gummy bear implants is their ability to maintain shape over long periods of time. This is because the highly cohesive silicone in the implant is a thicker material than other implants. Because of this, the implants are also less likely to fold, wrinkle, ripple, or migrate after they have been placed underneath a patient’s muscle or breast tissue.  Gummy bear breast implants are less likely to leak or rupture than saline implants because they don’t form fold lines that could strain the implants. Many women choose gummy bear implants because of their natural look and a soft feel more similar to that of natural breasts.

3D Imaging for Gummy Bear Implants

As is the case with any surgery, it is important to discuss the details of a breast augmentation with a board certified plastic surgeon, like Dr. Franckle before making a decision. Our office offers an additional benefit to women at their consultations, 3D imaging to give a clearer view of potential results. With this technology, patients can compare “before” images of their own bodies, with prospective “after” images side by side and decide the size and shape of their breast implant before making a final decision.

Whether interested in silicone gummy bear implants or any other breast surgery, William Franckle, MD, FACS offers extensive patient consultations that include 3D imaging. For more information about our surgical and non-surgical procedures, give us a call at (856) 772-6500 today.
