Breast Augmentation Seattle: What Is The Difference Between Gummy Bear And Silicone Implants?
A frequent question from breast augmentation patients is, “What is the difference between gummy bear and silicone implants?” This is a good question because at first, the two breast implants appear to be extremely similar. There are some notable differences though that make gummy bear breast implants a preferred choice for many women.
First off, gummy bear implants offer a teardrop shape. This shape resembles the natural shape and contour of the breast. Often, this leads to completely natural looking results. Traditional silicone breast implants–while they do offer many shapes–typically do not offer this teardrop or “anatomical” shape.
Secondly, while both breast implants are filled with silicone gel, gummy bear implants contain a specialized silicone gel. The silicone gel in gummy bear breast implants is thicker and cohesive. This means that the gel sticks to itself. If a rupture occurs (which is rare), the gummy bear breast implant is less likely to leak and more likely to hold its shape.
Finally, both types of breast implants can create natural looking and feeling results. Still, many women find that gummy bear breast implants provide the most natural feeling results. Gummy bear breast implants are slightly firmer, but when placed, this extra firmness feels natural.
