For years, board certified plastic surgeons have wanted a breast implant that does not leak. The high strength silicone breast implant may just be the answer. With the introduction of these “gummy bear” breast implants, Breast Augmentation is about to change.
High Strength Silicone Breast Implants
The high strength silicone filling in gummy bear breast implants is a soft solid. Even when the breast implant shell is cut in half, the silicone gel will not flow like water. The highly cohesive silicone gel sticks together, more like Jell-O than water. The less liquid like filler will reduce gel migration in the event that the shell is injured, leading to a more predictable Breast Augmentation.

Another advantage of the high strength silicone gel filler inside these new, next generation “gummy bear” breast implants is the ability to give the breast implants shape. In situations where there is very little breast tissue, especially after a mastectomy, a shaped implant can provide superior cosmetic results.
Teardrop Shaped Breast Implants
The more abrupt transition from chest wall to breast implant is most commonly seen when a round breast implant is placed in front of the pectoris muscle in a subglandular pocket. The “fake-look” can often be smoothed by moving the breast implant to a submuscular position. In cases when the muscle does not provide enough tapering of the upper pole of the breast, it can be smoothed further by using a breast implant that has a more gradual shape at the top. Teardrop shaped implants have been available in both saline and silicone filled implants in the past, but these are the first implants to combine a stable form implant with fewer leakage problems.
