Breast augmentation may involve the use of implants. Silicone-gel breast implants have become a common preference to enhance bust sizes since its ban for use was lifted.
The ‘Gummy Bear’ Implant is a fun term that’s used to describe the implant’s texture. But it doesn’t mean that other silicone-gel filled implants are inferior to this type. Most silicone breast implants on the market today are cohesive. There may only be differences in the thickness of the silicone gel being put in an implant.
Gummy Bear Implants are actually called ‘Form Stable’ Implants. These augmentation devices use the most cohesive silicone gel available.
Usually, it has a very high fill amount inside the implant shell. Form stable silicone implants available on the market come in texture-shaped, smooth, and round-shaped types.
Gummy Bear Implants have some advantages over other breast implant types. Some of these benefits make it preferable to many women who want to enhance their bust size.
These implants are considered safe to use. The FDA has given their product approval to some manufacturers, such as Allergan, Mentor, and Sientra. In most countries outside the US, form stable breast implants have been used for almost two decades.
Any silicone implant requires a longer incision compared to saline-filled breast implants. Since regular silicone and Gummy Bear breast implants are prefilled, a longer incision is needed to properly fit the devices.
Many surgeons agree that silicone-gel implants require a slightly longer incision. These implants have textured surfaces. Doing a slightly longer cut on your skin makes sure that implants don’t rub up against your skin too much during insertion.
These cohesive gel implants cost a thousand dollars more than regular silicone breast implants. Cohesive silicone implants or Gummy Bear implants can cost more than $3,000 per pair. Their higher cost may be due to more the implants advantages over regular silicone implants.
Gummy Bear implants have better consistency over regular silicone, and its stable form can maintain and enhance the outward appearance of the breast naturally.
These types of breast augmentation devices may be new in the world of breast enhancement. But these implants are gaining popularity, especially in breast reconstruction.
