Breast implants have undergone significant changes since the first procedure was performed in 1962 using the silicone breast prosthesis developed by surgeons Frank Gerow and Thomas Cronin. Over the course of the past 55 years, breast implants have become safer, more realistic, bigger and all around better, and just when many people thought implants couldn’t be enhanced any more, gummy bear breast implants entered the scene.
What Are Gummy Bear Implants?
These sweet-sounding implants are enhancements made of a highly cohesive gel material that can be molded and sized to the exact shape and proportions that any woman wants. What makes this possible is the fact that, like a gummy bear, the implants can be cut without losing their shape or resiliency. Unlike with saline or silicone implants, the shape of these prosthesis is not dictated by an outer casing which, if cut, would leak and lose all form.
Are Gummy Bear Implants Better?
Yes and no. Every woman wants something different from her breast augmentation, and what material works for one person might not work for another. That said, people who have opted for gummy bear breast implants, and who have had implants before, claim to like them better than their previous prosthesis. But why?
For one, the material used in gummy bear implants just looks and feels more natural. They come in a variety of shapes, size and textures, can be cut to the exact form a woman wants and even mold themselves to a woman’s breast bone. Additionally, they come in round, teardrop and oval shapes, shapes that have been specifically chosen to fit the natural contours of women’s bodies.
Gummy bear implants are also stronger than silicone or saline, which means that they are safer. In addition to being safer for patients, their durability means that they are not likely to wrinkle or fold, which means that they are less likely to fail.
Are Gummy Bear Implants Right for You?
The only person who can help you make that decision is your plastic surgeon. Breast enhancements are not one size fits all, and even if your neighbor has nothing but great things to say about her new gummy bear implants does not mean that you should run out and get them without first consulting with an experienced and knowledgeable surgeon. A surgeon can evaluate your natural physique and help you decide on the best implant material for your body.
Gummy bear breast implants are the newest improvement in breast augmentation. Though they are currently being met with some resistance in certain sectors of the population, there is no denying that they’re safe, durable and natural looking. If you’re considering breast augmentation, talk to your doctor about the gummy bears.
