Going Gummy Bear The Hottest New Implant and Where They Got Their Name
When implants busted onto the scene in the 70s and 80s, there weren’t many choices for your implants or your care. It was an experimental time in the plastic surgery arena and finding what worked best for women took a great deal of trial and error. Today, there are several options available for selecting implants that you’ll love and that’ll look more natural than ever before.
The newest option to arrive on the scene is the “gummy bear” implants---a strange name for a pretty revolutionary product. Here’s the 411 on the Gummy Bear implants and why we’re sure you’ll think they’re pretty sweet.
Going Gummy (Cohesive Gel)
Gummy Bear implants are actually called highly cohesive gel implants but they’ve been coined “gummy bear” implants because of their texture that resembles the yummy, gummy candy of your youth. The technology to design them has been around for a few years but it wasn’t until recently that they’ve been approved by the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) for use in America. This was big news for the plastic surgery industry meaning the gummy bear implant could be used in breast augmentation surgeries.
Why Gummy BEar implants Are a Great Choice
The awesome part about these highly cohesive gel implants is that they are more durable than their traditional silicone counterparts. While saline and silicone breast implants can have the ability to lose structure over time through rippling or a loss of volume, these new gummy bear implants are made with a special cross-linking series of molecules that make the silicone stronger but still give them the ability to look natural.
With this highly cohesive gel there is a very small chance of the implant ever losing shape or turning, meaning you’ll reap longer term benefits of a more durable product.
Because of this, they are often called “form stable” implants for their ability to keep their form despite how you move or change over time. If that isn’t enough to make you interested, they’ve also been deemed safer to use than the traditional silicone implants which can leak if ruptured. The gummy bear implants are made with a thicker gel that will stay inside the shell should anything happen to the implant. It’s a pretty awesome advancement in the world of implants.
