Gummy bear breast implants are specialized implants that hold their shape and are often referred to as "form-stable" implants, but they are remarkably soft and stable.

Gummy Bear implants are breast implants that have been widely used in Europe and elsewhere outside the United States for nearly twenty years. A variety of alterations and improvements in the crosslinking of the silicone gel fill as well as an increase in the range of shapes and sizes have made an outstanding addition to the breast implant spectrum.

Dr. Kolker's Message to Those Considering Breast Implants

“Many women would like to increase the size of their breasts. If you’re one of these women, and you’re also over 18, physically healthy, emotionally stable, and have realistic expectations about what plastic surgery can accomplish, you may be a candidate for breast augmentation.

The best way to determine with any certainty if breast augmentation is appropriate for you is to meet with one of our surgeons.”

Advantages and disadvantages of Gummy Bear Breast Implants

The silicone breast implants are available in 12 different shapes for any given volume. Compared to round silicone implants (including Natrelle Styles 10, 15, and 20) the gummy bear silicone implants are made with a more cohesive gel with more silicone crosslinking. Shaped, form-stable silicone gel breast implants are slightly firmer than the "less cohesive" cohesive gel implants.

Advantages

After breast augmentation, however, many feel that there is little difference in softness between the form stable cohesive gel and other cohesive gel implants. The advantages with the gummy bear implants are that they maintain shape in the upper pole, with less roundness and a more natural look in the appropriate individual. Furthermore, the rupture rate of these implants may be the lowest of any cohesive silicone gel implant, and the associated capsular contracture rates are also extremely low.

Disadvantages

The disadvantages of these implants are that the increased firmness may in some cases be noticeable, that the implants will not move; an anatomical breast implant must be placed hand-in-glove to avoid rotation or positional shift. Also, a larger incision is often required for insertion of 410 breast implants.
