There have been multiple generations of breasts implants since their introduction in 1962. Today, there are numerous choices for breast implants from saline to silicone, smooth or textured, round or shaped, to various sizes. The fifth and newest generation of breast implants are known as the “Gummy Bear” breast implants.

Why Are The Gummy Bear Breast Implants Unique
What makes this type of implant unique is that they are anatomically or tear drop shaped. The unique shape of this breast implant is designed to look like a natural breast. To achieve a tear drop shape, the silicone gel inside this implant is cross-linked to create a highly cohesive and stable, or “form stable” shape. What do these implants feel like? 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 form 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 are great implants for just about everyone. Women who want larger natural looking breasts, women in need breast reconstruction after mastectomy, and women with congenital breast deformities are all good candidates for gummy bear anatomic shaped breast implants.
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.
