Gummy bear implants are the latest such technology. The term refers to form stable breast implants that can now be used in breast enhancement surgery. More women are interested in these implants because they offer a more natural looking result. The silicone gel used inside the implant is thicker, allowing it to always retain its shape.

“Women are loving the results they are getting from these gummy bear implants because they feel the thicker gel used in the implants gives them a more natural look and feel,” says Dr. Kimball Crofts, one of the most trusted plastic surgeons in the area.

The term “gummy bear” might sound like a crazy comparison, but it actually can give potential patients an excellent visual of what the implant looks like. If you cut a gummy bear in half, it will retain its shape – the same is true for the implant. The gel used is thicker than was used in previous generation implants.

Gummy bear implants will have less wrinkling than saline implants over time, and because of its firmness, women report that they feel more like a natural breast.

“Women are often concerned about what could happen if their implant were to rupture,” says Dr. Crofts. “With a form stable gummy bear implant, the gel will not migrate far from its original location if it were to rupture or become damaged in any way.”

Gummy bear implants are relatively new to the plastic surgery world, but are being used with great success. However, as with any procedure, there can be some disadvantages. Because the implant is thicker, it requires a slightly larger incision to place, which some patients may not like.

Not every patient will be an ideal candidate for the form stable implants. If you are interested in learning more about gummy bear implants, schedule a consultation today to learn more about what type of procedure can give you the most natural and beautiful result.
