What are the Best Breast Implants to Use?
Breast implants are generally made up of silicone shells that are filled with either saline (salt water) or silicone gel. They are both safe and offer their own advantages. Today, the newest generation of silicone implants available is called Gummy Bear.
Gummy Bear silicones are soft, pliable, but strong and durable. They resembled the candy – gummy bears, of which they are named after. They are considered the best breast implants by many people today because of their natural look and feel. Gummy Bears are available in a variety of shapes and textures to ensure a custom fit.

The Breast Augmentation Procedures
- General anesthesia and intravenous sedation are administered during the surgical procedure
- Incisions are made in the armpit, in the crease on the underside of the breasts, or around the areola to minimize visible scarring.
- After the incisions, the breasts are lifted, creating a pocket into which the implants are inserted and placed. The method of inserting and positioning the implants for breasts depends on the type of breast implant, size of breasts you want, body type and the surgeon’s recommendation.
- After the breast implant, incisions are stitched closed, taped and bandaged. In a few days, the bandages may be replaced with a surgical bra.
- Stitches are removed within 7 to 10 days after the procedure. Postoperative pain, swelling and sensitivity will subside over the first few weeks. Within a few months, scars will begin to fade and will continue to fade for months or years.
The Possible Risk of Breast Augmentation
After the breast implants, complications are uncommon and usually minimal, they may include:
- Capsular contracture
- Swelling and pain
- Infection around the implant
- A change in nipple sensation
- Milk production ( if you nursed within a year before your procedure)
- Breakage or leakage of the breast implant also called an implant rupture, which is a result of injury or the normal compression and movement of your breasts
