People do ask if there are any risks involved when it comes to getting gummy bear breast implants. This is an important question, and one that we can provide clear answers to. First of all, it’s important to remember that getting breast implants involves undergoing surgery. While potential risks from breast enhancement surgery continue to be reduced and minimized, as medical science continues to evolve, it’s important to keep in mind that no form of surgery is absolutely risk-free.

Some of the risks involved will relate to your specific circumstances, such as your level of physical health. Do talk with your plastic surgeon about your particular risk profile. We take your questions and concerns seriously, and we would be happy to provide tailored and customized guidance regarding this, and any other questions you might have.

Keep in mind as well that there will be a recovery period after the surgery to get the gummy bear implants. While it may be possible to go back to your normal daily routine in about a week, there may be some soreness and fatigue immediately after the procedure. There may also still be some pain, discomfort and swelling after the breast enlargement procedure, and this could last for a number of weeks.

When it comes to other risks, gummy bear implants actually reduce some of these. For example, these implants have been found to result in reduced possibility of complications, compared to other types of implants. There’s a much lower chance of rupture. And cosmetic surgeons expect that these types of implants will fare much better in the longer term.

So whether you’re looking into getting implants in a clinic in New York, New Jersey, or elsewhere, ask your cosmetic surgeon about gummy bear implants. This is something that we would be happy to provide you with more information on.
