Gummy Bear implants, or cohesive gel implants, have a number of great advantages and are a new implant that many women are using all over the world.
If you’re currently considering breast implant options, this is what you need to know about Gummy Bear implants.
Pros of Gummy Bear breast implants
Gummy Bear implants maintain their shape
When compared to other types of breast implants, Gummy Bear implants have a reputation for maintaining their shape for a longer period of time. Saline and silicone implants are more subject to gravity as well as the shape of a woman’s breasts. This means that these types of implants are more likely to change shape over time. Gummy Bear implants have a distinct shape, which is the shape that the breast will conform to.
Rippling and folds are less likely to occur
Gummy Bear implants are far less likely to fold or ripple because of the implant’s distinct shape and the fact that the implant’s filling doesn’t shift around on the inside. The implant’s tight molecular bonds ensure that the shell is less likely to collapse and ripple or fold.
They don’t leak
Implant ruptures are a common concern amongst women considering breast augmentation but Gummy Bear implants don’t leak if they rupture. This means that if the shell breaks, the filling of the implant won’t enter the body because it’s solid. Implant shells will generally break along the fold line but since Gummy Bear implants aren’t likely to fold, it reduces the risk of rupturing.
Scar tissue is reduced
Gummy Bear implants that are inserted by Dr Peter Laniewski will result in less scar tissue than silicone or saline implants would. Some people believe this is because the firmness of the implant prevents the body from contracting around the implant while others think it’s due to less diffusion of silicone.
Choosing a breast implant type
Every type of breast implant comes with its own pros and cons but overall, Gummy Bear implants will not only provide you with a more natural look and feel but they’re safer and will retain their shape should the implant rupture.
Cost is another factor that comes into play when choosing a breast implant option, with saline implants being the most affordable. Yet, saline implants aren’t known to feel and look the most natural.
The type of implant that you choose is purely based on your personal preferences as well as your budget.
Your best option is to schedule a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon who can take you through each of these options so that you can make an informed decision.
When deciding on a surgeon, it’s incredibly important to take your time choosing one. Never choose a surgeon based on price alone either. Breast augmentation is a major surgery so not only should your chosen surgeon have the right qualifications but you need to be confident in their abilities and experience before you schedule your surgery.
