The Natural and Safe Gummy Bear Implants

The Natural and Safe Gummy Bear Implants

Gummy Bears for Your Breasts

Probably inspired by the cohesive physical structure of gummy bears, Gummy Bear implants apply the same rule of remaining “stuck together” although it’s been cut up into pieces. This is very much unlike saline or liquid-filled implants, where a small cut can cause the liquid inside to leak and the implants to deflate.

What Makes Gummy Bears Different From Other Implants

The main difference Gummy Bears have with other implants like saline and silicone gel is the way they’re formed. Saline and silicone implants are mainly made out of liquid that is held together with a coating that’s usually made out of silicone.

However, for you to tell the difference between saline, silicone gel and Gummy Bear implants better, here are some of the key characteristics for each type of implants:

Gummy Bear Implants

  • Approved by the FDA for 22-year-old or older women
  • Known to have the most natural feel and look due to its “teardrop” shape
  • Little to no chances of leaks or ruptures due to its highly cohesive structure
  • The incision needed for these implants need to be longer

Silicone Gel Implants

  • Approved by the FDA for 22-year-old or older women
  • Filled beforehand with a silicone gel solution
  • Also natural looking and have a close feel with actual breast tissue
  • Also needs a slightly longer incision

Saline Implants

  • Approved by the FDA for 18-year-old or older women
  • Known to feel firmer than silicone-based implants
  • Most affordable types of breast implants
  • Are empty when inserted into the breasts, then they’re filled with sterile salt water or saline that is safe for the body

Gummy Bear implants are a popular choice for women because out of the three, it produces the most natural look. Some women who had saline implants even decide to exchange them for Gummy Bears when it’s allowed or appropriate.

Like other breast implants, Gummy Bears can also be used to restore a woman’s breast size and shape, which might have dropped due to pregnancy or significant weight loss. Gummy Bears also help tons for women with small breasts and for women who have significantly disproportionate breasts.

The Great Thing about Gummy Bear Implants

Gummy Bear implants have a few benefits which aren’t present in the older types of breast implants. Of course, this is probably expected since it is the newest type of implants that are available in clinics.

So what are these said benefits and advantages Gummy Bears have over the other implants? Here are some examples below to answer that question:

  • Gummy Bears are semi-solid and are more cohesive than other implants, which are made out of a bag that is filled with a saline or silicone gel liquid. This means there are little to no chances of the implants rupturing or leaking. Basically, there’s nothing to leak for these types of implants since they’re not made out of liquid.
  • Aside from looking more natural, Gummy Bears also feel more natural than other types of breast implants. Its teardrop shape follows the natural slope of the breasts and widens as it goes down, making the bottom of the breasts look fuller naturally. Also due to its firmness, the feel is more closely similar to natural breasts compared to saline and silicone gel implants.
  • Since Gummy Bears are less likely to rupture and leak, surgeons also believe that this type of breast implants are a safer option than other implants. Although the sayings that breast implants (especially leaking ones) cause breast cancer are said to be false, it’s better to be safe than sorry.
