There is a new trend in the field of breast augmentation. Gummy bear implants are all the rage for our patients in New York because of the great outcomes that can be achieved with the use of these implants. But with the various breast augmentation methods available in the market, you might ask, “What makes gummy bear implants different from the rest?”
What better way to answer that question than to enumerate the benefits of gummy bear implants?
Gummy bears maintain shape.
One of the most noticeable benefits of the new gummy bear breast implants is their ability to maintain their shape for an extended period of time. Because of its defined, cohesive gel, a gummy bear implant can hold its shape much longer than silicone or saline implants. Other implants can droop over time and change shape due to gravity. Gummy bear implants, on the other hand, have this distinct shape that the breasts will likely conform to and not the other way around.
No rippling and folds with gummy bears!
Another advantage that separates gummy bear breast implants from the rest is that folds or rippling is not likely to occur after they are implanted on the breasts. This is because of the cohesive gel substance that gummy bear implants are made of. Its distinct shape will not cause any shifting inside the breasts, making rippling almost impossible to happen.
Leakage is not possible.
Unlike other types of implants where there is a risk of leaking, there’s nothing to worry about when it comes to gummy bear implants. Leakage is a common complication in typical breast implants since the liquid is most likely to leak once the shell breaks. Since gummy bears are made of cohesive gel, which is solid, leakage is not usually a concern in breast augmentation patients with gummy bear implants.
