Gummy Bear Breast Implants

Form stable breast implants, more commonly referred to as “gummy bear implants,” offer the latest in breast implant technology. The silicone filling used for these implants very closely resembles natural breast tissue, providing a firm yet supple feel along with anatomically natural contours for ultimately pleasing breast augmentation results. During your initial consultation with board-certified Naples plastic surgeon Dr. Manuel Peña it can best be determined if this type of breast implant is suitable for your particular needs.

If you are considering breast augmentation in the Naples area of Florida, please contact Peña Plastic Surgery online or by calling (239) 248-7362 today to schedule your consultation.

Why Consider Form Stable Breast Implants

Gummy bear implants tend to look and feel more natural than other types of breast implants, even when placed above the muscles in the chest. In addition, form stable breast implants are:

  • Less likely to ripple or wrinkle
  • Long lasting
  • Ideally suited for nearly every body-type

Unlike other silicone options, gummy bear breast implants maintain their volume and shape even in the rare case of implant rupture. This allows gummy bear breast implants to produce consistent and pleasing results longer than both saline and traditional silicone alternatives. What’s more, form stable breast implants have been shown to reduce risks of breast augmentation complications such as capsular contracture, though no more so than other textured implants.

It is important to note that form stable breast implants do not compress and must be placed through a larger incision, often in the inframammary location. Portative drains may also be required during the initial stages of your breast augmentation recovery if you choose to have gummy bear breast implants.
