CONSIDERATIONS IN GUMMY BEAR BREAST AUGMENTATION
Dr. Diana Breister Ghosh offers the latest gel breast implant, known as the "Gummy Bear" implant. Composed on a high-strength silicone gel, the "Gummy Bear" nickname is derived from the gummy bear candy because when cut, the semi-solid implant gel adheres similarly to the candy.
These implants differ from traditional implants in that the "Gummy Bear" gel is more dense and cohesive. Due to this semi-solid form, the gel implants are able to retain their shape and provide a more natural feel and appearance. The new thicker and smoother gel is less likely to cause the rippling effect more commonly experienced with saline implants. Clinical studies of the gummy bear implant show a reduced risk or capsular contracture (development of scar tissue around the implant resulting in hardening). In addition, studies have also shown a reduced risk of implant leakage.
Allergan Natrelle™ 410 Silicone Breast Implants
Allergan provides the new style 410 implants which are the most advanced generation of silicone breast implants that are available today. The silicone in this type of implant is stable in form, does not flow, and maintains its shape. The Allergan Natrelle™ 410 Silicone Breast Implant comes in 12 different models with differing heights, widths and projections. All implants come with an anatomical shape to match natural body characteristics.
These gummy bear implants provide excellent options for patients who may need:
Augmentation revision or mastopexy/augmentation
Augmentation revision for leaking or deflated implants
Augmentation revision for capsular contracture
