Why use Gummy Bear Breast Implants?
The popularly named gummy bear breast implants are cohesive gel, and they’re form-stable. If you push hard enough on the breast implant, you can alter the shape slightly, however it doesn’t really leak. Not to mention difficult for them to change shape. For this reason the new silicone implants are often called gummy bear implants. The old silicone implants from the 1980’s were less viscous and could actually leak. Dr. Smith does not use these implants at all. The new silicone implants are FDA approved and are considered to be as safe as saline implants.
Because of their material, form-stable breast implants can be shaped; of which being teardrop and round shaped. Teardrop shaped implants mimic the natural shape of the breast, with a finished result that is less full but more natural. The shape of teardrop implants can also cause issues if the implant rotates, whereas there is little noticeable difference if a round implant rotates.
