Why Are Gummy Bear Breast Implants Unique

What makes this type of implant unique is that it is anatomically or teardrop-shaped. The unique shape of this breast implant is designed to look like a natural breast. To achieve a teardrop shape, the silicone gel inside this implant is cross-linked to create a highly cohesive and stable, or “form stable” shape.

Similar to gummy bear candy, these breast implants are soft and pliable and easily bounce back after applying pressure. They hold their shape over time and have less chance of rippling and capsular contracture compared to saline or silicone implants.

If the implant shell breaks, the stable silicone gel does not leak or drip out from the surrounding shell. The implant even holds its shape even if the shell is ruptured.

Who Are Good Candidates For Gummy Bear Implants

Anatomic-shaped breast implants are used for both reconstructive and cosmetic breast surgery. Gummy bear implants in San Diego are great implants for just about everyone. Women who want larger, natural-looking breasts, women in need of breast reconstruction after mastectomy, and women with congenital breast deformities are all good candidates for gummy bear anatomic-shaped breast implants.

“I did a ton of research and looked at a ton of before and afters before deciding to make a consultation with Dr. Park. I came into the consultation prepared with a few reference pictures of what I wanted. Dr. Park looked at my photos, and did my measurements. Immediately after he had known what range of cc’s would best suit me and my goals. He reviewed the entire process of the BA, as well as what he did to minimize the chance of bacterial contamination and discomfort after the surgery. That really made a difference and stood out to me. Also Doctor Park will not let you go bigger than your body can handle. He actually cares about you and your results, and he knows what will suit your body best. You have to trust that you picked a great surgeon who is gentle, caring, and perfectionistic. He wants you to look good as much as you want to look good. I am 9 days out of surgery now and feel great. There was no blood and no visible bruising. It really goes to show how precise and gentle he is during surgery. My results are amazing. Better than I could have ever imagined. Thank you Dr. Park.”

Natural Looking Breasts

Most women want larger, fuller breasts, but would like to avoid looking like they have had a breast augmentation. Rather than having augmented breasts that look like two halves of a ball on their chest, women can achieve natural, perky breast fullness with anatomic-shaped gummy bear breast implants. These implants have a shape that slopes at the upper part of the breasts, transitioning to a rounder shape at the lower half of the breasts. This unique shape provides a natural, fuller shape that is desired by many women.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Are Gummy Bear Implants Placed During Surgery, And What Are The Incision Options?

Gummy bear implants are a type of breast implant made of cohesive silicone gel. They have a stable shape and are less likely to ripple or leak than other implants. To insert them, surgeons can make cuts in different places, such as under the breast, around the nipple, or under the arm. This gives them and their patients some flexibility in choosing the best option.

What Is The Lifespan Of Gummy Bear Breast Implants, And Do They Require Replacement?

Gummy bear breast implants are known for their durability and longevity, often lasting 10 to 15 years or longer. However, they are not considered lifetime devices. Patients should undergo regular check-ups for monitoring. Replacement might be necessary due to personal preference, cosmetic reasons, or rare complications like implant rupture or capsular contracture.

How Do Gummy Bear Implants Affect Mammograms And Breast Cancer Screenings?

Gummy bear implants can necessitate specialized mammogram techniques to ensure comprehensive breast cancer screening. Radiologists may perform additional views or employ digital mammography to navigate around the implants. Please inform the mammography technician about the presence of implants prior to the screening.

How Do Gummy Bear Implants Impact Breast Sensation And Breastfeeding?

Some women may experience changes in breast sensation post-surgery, which often improve over time. Gummy bear implants have not been shown to significantly impact breastfeeding capabilities. However, individual experiences may vary, and discussing concerns with a surgeon before surgery is advisable.

What Are The Benefits Of Choosing Gummy Bear Implants Over Other Types?

Gummy bear implants offer several benefits, such as a more natural shape, a lower likelihood of rippling, and a reduced risk of leakage due to their cohesive gel. Their form-stable nature allows for a maintained shape, even if the implant shell breaks. These implants are particularly beneficial for women who prefer a more natural contour with a lower risk of complications.
