Gummy Bear Breast Implants – Breast Implant Manufacturers don’t like the nickname, and I imagine neither do the folks at Haribo who make Gummi Bear Candies; however, it’s a comparison that is relatable and it works. So what exactly is a Gummy Bear Breast Implant?
The image above is a screen-grab from the video below. This implant has been divided in two. The clean cut edge of the shell is clearly seen along the divided diameter, and the gel is just edging out as the Silicone Gel Breast Implant is gently compressed.
When released, the entire cut edge of the Gummy Bear Breast Implant is flat. The gel inside the implant maintains its original shape within the implant shell. This property is called “memory, ” and one manufacturer uses the term “Memory Gel” to describe their implants. While the gel is soft and easily deforms to the touch, it also has memory and returns to its original shape once released. This is demonstrated in the video below.
Gummy Bear Breast Implants Video
If you have ever divided a Gummi Bear Candy and squeezed it, you have seen the property that Gummy Bear Breast Implants have. It is such an apt description that the term has become part of the Cosmetic Plastic Surgery vernacular. Watch…
Watch the gel as the bisected Gummy Bear – high strength cohesive gel implant is compressed. The cohesive gel is soft and pliable, yet, as soon as the pressure is released, it returns back to its original shape.
A Gummy Bear Breast Implant By Any Other Name
Gummy Bear Breast Implants go by many names, but they are describing the same properties of the implants:
- High strength silicone gel
- Soft to the touch
- Returns to its original shape
- Limits gel migration
You will hear them called cohesive gel implants, high strength gel implants, memory gel, ultra cohesive breast implants and of course, gummy bear breast implants. The terms are interchangeable, but the important safety feature is the reduction or elimination of the gel migration seen in early thin gel, “oil” filled breast implants. They are stronger, safer and still remain soft.
