If you are seeking a way to enhance your bust, consider the gummy bear implant. This very natural-looking type of breast implant has many advantages over the traditional types. Here at Murphy Plastic Surgery, we are proud to offer this option to our patients and encourage you to learn more about it.
What is a Gummy Bear Implant?
Gummy bear implants have both a silicone shell and silicone filling. That being said, it differs from traditional silicone implants due to the consistency. These implants are filled with a very cohesive type of silicone gel. If you were to cut one in half, it would maintain its shape, which is where the name came from.
Unlike traditional round implants, gummy bear implants have a teardrop shape. Implants have a tendency to rotate over time, which could look strange when they are not round. To fight this problem, the gummy bear implant has a textured shell to help it stay in place. As a bonus, your body’s natural tissues will have an easier time growing around these implants. This will make them even less likely to shift or rotate.
Another advantage of the textured shell is that it helps to prevent capsular contracture. This is a condition when the tissue around the implant grows in too thick. Capsular contracture is a painful condition and can eventually lead to breast asymmetry. This particular implant is a popular choice because it comes with a reduced risk of this condition.
Why Choose the Gummy Bear Implant?
If you are still not convinced that this type of implant is a great option, consider the following benefits:
- They Look More Natural: Many women find the teardrop shape to look and feel more natural than round implants. They also tend to feel more natural than silicone or saline implants. Even though they are not round, properly done gummy bear implants can still give you a great deal of cleavage.
- They Maintain Their Shape: Traditional implants can have their shape impacted by the constant pressure put on them by the surrounding tissues. Due to the thickness of the gel, this is less likely to happen to happen when you choose a gummy bear Implant.
- They Stay Smooth: If you are someone without much breast tissue naturally, the gummy bear implant is a good choice because it is less likely to wrinkle or fold. The construction of this implant makes it capable of staying smoother, longer.
