Is a “gummy implant” better than silicone?

Answer:

Gummy implants are form-stable implants. They differ from the more common cohesive gel implants in that they are firmer. The form-stabile implants maintain the structure of the gel if the implant ruptures. The analogy used is the consistency is like “jello.” If the implant is cut in half, the gel does not ooze. The form-stable implants available in the U.S. are all textured and have a Bio-Dimensional shape. Because of their somewhat lack of pliability, a larger incision is required to insert them as opposed to the incision size used for the cohesive gel implants or the saline implants.
