What are Gummy Bear Implants?

What are Gummy Bear Implants?

The term "gummy bear implants" applies to a new type of silicone gel implant which has a consistency similar to the popular candy known as Gummy Bears. Technically, the implants are known as cohesive gel breast implants and have the advantage of holding their shape for longer than other types of earlier-generation silicone gel implants. The ingredients used in earlier gel implants and the new gummy bear implants are essentially the same. However, additives have been included in the production of the gummy bear implants to encourage tighter bonding among the molecules to create a more stable shape. In addition to holding shape well, other advantages include the lack of leakage during a rupture and a reduction in problems with contour deformities, such as rippling.
