Cohesive gel silicone breast implants, colloquially known as gummy bear implants, are among the newer types of breast implants on the market. However, newer does not imply untested. In fact, these implants adhere to the same strict regulations as all silicone breast implants – only the design has changed.
Gummy bear implants have become increasingly popular due to their ability to retain their shape after placement. This allows cohesive gel implants to continue to produce attractive results long after your initial procedure. However, their ability to retain shape is far from the only benefit offered by this type of breast implant.
Benefits Offered by Gummy Bear Breast Implants
Gummy bear breast implants retain their shape long after they have been placed. Much of this has to do with their incredibly durability. It is this same durability that makes these implants less likely to ripple, wrinkle, or rupture, all of which are factors that can necessitate breast implant revision surgery. What’s more, gummy bear implants have nearly a 70 percent lower rate of capsular contracture, allowing them to protect both the appearance and comfort of your breasts for years to come.
