What Are Gummy Bear Breast Implants?
In 2013, the FDA approved form-stable implants, commonly referred to by doctors as “Gummy Bear” implants, due to their ability to maintain shape even when the implant shell is broken, much like how the gummy bear candy keeps its shape if you cut it in half.
Approved for breast augmentation in adults age 22 and older and any woman undergoing breast reconstruction following cancer treatment, the Gummy Bear breast implant is a silicone shell filled with silicone gel that offers patients a more natural, teardrop-shape look.
Gummy Bear vs. Other Silicone Breast Implants
Cross linking in the silicone gel of a Gummy Bear implant creates a thicker consistency, which provides more stability and results in a firmer breast than the typical silicone implant. While many women love a more natural look, others may prefer a softer feel.
For women undergoing breast reconstruction surgery, the Gummy Bear works well as a breast implant because it requires no fitting around existing breast tissue. These natural, teardrop-shaped breast implants — with more projection at the bottom and tapering toward the top — also require a slightly larger incision during surgery than traditional silicone implants.
