What is a Gummy Bear Breast Implant?

Posted: September 18, 2020

Image of breasts and torso of a woman in a red bikini top at the beach“Gummy bear” is the colloquial term for form-stable, cohesive silicone gel breast implants. They earned their nickname because, like gummy bear candy, these implants hold their shape even when cut in half. The thick, cohesive gel material allows gummy bear implants to be made into shapes: either round or teardrop. This type of breast implant adds natural-looking volume to the bust while also feeling naturally soft to the touch.

Led by fellowship-trained cosmetic surgeon Dr. Anthony Miller, Orange County Cosmetic Surgery proudly offers gummy bear implants for our breast augmentation patients.

Benefits of Gummy Bear Breast Implants

Gummy bear implants offer a number of benefits to our patients, including:

  • Natural look: Teardrop-shaped gummy bear implants are known for their realistic anatomical shapes. The top is tapered, while the bottom is thicker, much like a real breast. Additionally, compared to other types of breast implants, gummy bear breast implants maintain their natural shape better over an extended period of time.
  • Natural feel: Better than traditional silicone, gummy bear implants realistically simulate the weight, texture, and elasticity of natural breast tissue. This is preferred by patients who prioritize comfort and a natural look.
  • Fewer complications: Unlike saline implants, gummy bear breast implants do not contain any liquid. The cohesive gel material used in gummy bear implants is unlikely to escape its outer shell, even in the event of a tear or breach. This is a considerable benefit for patients concerned with the safety and longevity of their results.
  • Long-lasting results: Gummy bear implants are soft, but durable. They are generally expected to last as long, if not longer, than any other type of silicone breast implant on the market. Not only does this give patients peace of mind, but the longevity of these implants can offer other advantages in terms of long-term health benefits and cost savings.
