Women who decide to enhance their breasts with implants have an extensive range of options. Form-stable breast implants, also known as “gummy bear” implants, are the preferred option for many patients who want to maintain a natural look and feel to their breasts.
Are Gummy Bear Implants
right for you ?
Regardless of the shape, gummy bear implants are also popular due to their durability compared to traditional silicone and saline gel implants. During your initial consultation, your surgeon will listen to your goals and concerns and perform an extensive exam to decide if gummy bear implants are the best option for your breast augmentation.
Less risk of folding, wrinkling, and rippling
Possible lower risk of capsular contracture
If tearing or rupture occurs, the implant will continue to hold its size or shape
Minimal sagging and lateral movement after surgery
Less likely to change shape or position in the breast over time
range of sizes and shapes for full customization
While many good reasons exist to consider gummy bear implants, there are other options for some patients. Dr. Barrett will evaluate each patient’s situation and aesthetic goals to help decide if this approach is correct.
A patient care concierge will guide you through the entire consultation process, which can be attended in person or virtually. During the consultation, your surgeon will learn about your goals, answer any questions, and perform an examination to create a personalized surgical plan. You’ll provide photos representing your breast goals and discuss your implant options. You will then be matched with a surgical coordinator who will walk you through each step of the preoperative process.
