Breast augmentation is a very popular cosmetic surgical procedure in the US. While more and more women continue to seek this procedure, more and more cosmetic surgeons also find ways to make their craft more effective and satisfying to their patients.
What are gummy bear breast implants?
Gummy bear implants are the newly FDA-approved breast implants to be used in breast augmentation. Coined by Dr. Grant Stevens, these implants got their name from the “gummy bear” candy, which retains its shape when cut. These new implants, just like the chewy candies, are more stable than the silicone ones, making them feel and look more like natural breasts when inserted.
What makes gummy bear implants unique?
Aside from their firmness and stability, gummy bear implants are believed to be much safer than other implant types since they are not easily ruptured. Because they keep their shape, these cohesive gel implants are able to keep their form and remain intact.
Gummy bear implants are also designed to mimic the breast’s natural shape. Because of this, these implants are made in the shape of a tear drop – tapered in the top and thicker at the bottom. Even when the implant is cut in half, it maintains its shape because of the thick consistency of the gel inside it.
