In an effort to mimic the natural shape of the breast, form stable implants or gummy bear breast implants are created to appear like a tear drop, thicker at the bottom and tapered towards the top. To help maintain this shape, the silicone gel inside the gummy bear implants is firmer than that which is certainly routinely present in a round implant. The consistency of the gel inside the gummy bear breast implant is thicker, and maintains its shape even if the implant is cut in half. Therefore these types of implants are normally referred to as ‘gummy bear breast implants”.
Form stable implants offer an additional choice for women desiring breast augmentation surgery. As with all devices, these breast implants have benefits and drawbacks. Before choosing an implant, every individual should talk about the potential risks and benefits with her cosmetic or plastic surgeon, as form stable implants might not be the perfect choice for each woman.

Problems include potential rotation of the gummy bear breast implants in which case the thicker section of the implant can distort the breast”s shape. Since the gel is thicker, a slightly longer incision to insert them is sometimes necessary. Some women also disapprove of the gel”s uniformity. Needless to say, form stable implants also share risks common to all breast enlargements including rare instances of infection, bleeding and implant rupture.
Form stable implants give another choice to women desiring an augmentation mammoplasty. Are you considering a breast augmentation?
