What are Gummy Bear Implants?

Gummy Bear breast implants are used in primary breast augmentation procedures and in breast revision surgery in Bakersfield, Orange County, and Newport Beach. Many breast augmentation patients seeking breast augmentation surgery opt for a silicon breast implant due to its natural look and feel.

What are Gummy Bear Implants Made Of?

Traditional breast implants are made up of an outer shell of silicone. Within that outer shell, the filler material consists of either silicone gel or a more liquid saline solution. The gummy bear breast implant has both a silicone shell and a semi-solid gel filling of silicone. Gummy bear breast implants also have a more teardrop shape, unlike traditional circular breast shape implants.

The term “gummy” actually refers to the silicone gel composite inside these highly cohesive gel implants.

Are Gummy Bear Implants Textured?

Gummy bear implant options are typically textured implants. Between the texture and the teardrop shaping, implant rotation is far less likely with this implant option. Textured implants are less associated with capsular contraction, which can create scar tissue around the implants.

Gummy Bear Implants Pros and Cons

Gummy bear breast implants are a type of silicone breast implant known for its anatomically shaped cohesive gel that maintains shape even when cut, offering a more natural appearance compared to traditional silicone breast implants or traditional saline implants. Their stability and lower risk of implant leakage make them a popular choice among those seeking breast augmentation.

Traditional silicone implants and gummy bear breast implants differ mainly in the consistency of the filler material. Gummy bear implants have a firmer, more natural feel. They also tend to hold their natural shape better than traditional silicone implants. Typically, both gummy, cohesive gel implants and traditional silicone implants feel softer to the touch than traditional saline implants.

Early traditional silicone breast implants had a risk of rupture for the silicone outer shell and thick silicone gel leaking into the surrounding breast tissue. Rupturing silicone gel implants is significantly more unlikely now due to the increased strength of the silicone outer shell.

Gummy bear implants are even safer because of the more cohesive internal silicone. Even if the silicone outer shell should somehow rupture, the thick silicone gel is less likely to spread than the filler of traditional saline implants or a traditional silicone breast implant.

Gummy bear breast implants differ from traditional saline breast implants in material and consistency. While saline implants are filled with a sterile saltwater solution and can feel less like natural breasts, gummy bear implant options are filled with a more cohesive internal silicone gel that mimics the feel of natural breast tissue more closely and retains breast shape better over time.

Gummy bear breast implant options come in teardrop and round shapes. Teardrop implants are more anatomically shaped, mimicking the natural slope of a woman’s breast, whereas a round breast implant will provide a fuller look at the top of the breasts, enhancing cleavage and fullness.

Gummy Bear Implants Cost

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the national average cost of breast augmentation is $6,500 to $8,000 in California.

Gummy Bear Implants Sizes

Gummy bear breast implants are available in a wide range of sizes to accommodate different body types, breast pocket sizes, and aesthetic goals. The choice of size for breast augmentation patients depends on various factors, including the patient’s body frame, natural breast tissue, and desired outcome, allowing for a customized breast augmentation approach.

Are Gummy Bear Implants Safe?

While any surgical procedure comes with a reduced risk, gummy bear breast implants and other breast implants are widely considered to be safe. Specifically, the gummy bear implant is stronger than other implants.

Dr. Daneshmand, a board-certified plastic surgeon, along with most plastic surgeons, performs regular screenings of his patients’ breast implants to make sure they remain intact and in place. Below, we include other important risks and side effects of any breast augmentation procedure.

How Long Do Gummy Bear Implants Last?

No breast implants last a lifetime. As they age, the risk of capsular contracture and implants rupturing. Should a rupture occur, a limited amount of thick gel can escape with newer cohesive gel implants. Most plastic surgeons recommend breast implant replacement every ten years

One way to ensure that the appearance of your implants remains intact is to maintain a stable body weight from breast implant placement. Any significant weight change, either gained or lost, will change the appearance of breast implants.

Gummy Bear Implants Results

Gummy bear implants provide durable and aesthetically pleasing results, maintaining their shape and consistency over time. Patients can expect a natural feel and appearance, with a lower risk of complications such as rupture or capsular contracture than other types of implants.
