Where breast enhancement is concerned, one of the major debates is which is the best type of implant to use – saline or silicone. The truth is that there is no set answer to this question since each type of implant has its own pros and cons. However it is no longer accurate to class silicone implants as being all the same thing.
There is a new form of silicone breast implants known as gummy bear implants. Although gummy bear implants are still made from silicone, they are much more cohesive, meaning they stick together much stronger. This provides some key benefits when using them for breast enhancement surgery, as shown below.
The advantages of gummy bear silicone implants
- Reduced rippling
One of the issues that can occur with regular silicone implants is rippling. This often occurs after multiple surgeries when the breast tissue is spread thin. With gummy bear implants, the more solid composition means that rippling is much less likely.
- More solid composition means ruptures are much safer
Another big benefit of gummy bear implants over regular silicone implants is that there’s a much reduced spread if one of them ruptures. This is because gummy bear implants have a more solid composition.
- No added cost
Although gummy bear implants provide some key benefits over regular silicone implants, they don’t cost more so the overall fee for your breast enhancement surgery will not be greater if you opt for them.
- They are comfortable
Gummy bear implants are very comfortable once they’ve been placed and many women find them to be lighter and less noticeable in comparison to saline implants.
- They look and feel natural
Because of their cohesive structure, gummy bear implants look and feel natural.
Although gummy bear implants are an excellent alternative to regular silicone implants, they do not guarantee a good result on their own. A great result depends on choosing the right surgeon who will properly advise you and be able to help you achieve the breasts that you want.
