Is Silicone a Good Breast Implant Option?

Authored by:
Breast augmentation creates larger breasts, but which type of breast implant should you choose? The decision can feel both exhilarating and anxiety-causing! We hope you will rely on the experience and guidance of Dr. Anthony Miller as you make this important decision.

Gummy Bear Breast Implants

Why are silicone breast implant popular r1 Dr. Miller prefers form-stable “gummy bear” breast implants for breast enhancement. You may wonder why they are called gummy bear implants. The reason is the consistency of the silicone gel. It is essentially thicker than traditional silicone implants, and form-stable. If you were to cut the gummy bear implant in half, it would maintain its shape.

The benefits of form-stable breast implants include:

  • Optimally natural look and feel when placed inside the breasts
  • Gel is unlikely to leak out or drip out if the implant shell ruptures or tears
  • Available in round and teardrop shapes

Compared to saline breast implants, silicone is not susceptible to the type of visible wrinkling and rippling that saline is vulnerable to.

Ultimately, the choice of breast implant is personal. Dr. Miller is here to provide guidance drawing from his many years of experience with breast augmentation results. He will walk you through all of the options and you’ll be able to feel a sample breast implant in-person. You will also view before-and-after images of our breast augmentation patients to see what their results look like.

It’s Time to Look How You Want to Look

With breast augmentation, you’ll look in the mirror and see the breasts that you’ve pictured for yourself. You may feel confident, beautiful, and self-possessed just as you are, but want the breasts that match how you see yourself. Breast augmentation can achieve that.
