What To Know When Considering Getting Gummy Bear Implants

Posted February 21, 2017 in Uncategorized, by Dr. Fiorillo

Breast implant research isn’t something to take lightly. That said, many women come to the conclusion fairly quickly that silicone gummy bear implants will be best breast implants for them. Choosing a plastic surgeon in New Jersey that specializes on silicone implants will insure that your procedure will be carried out with care and expertise. With that in mind, below are some things to consider before undergoing New Jersey plastic surgery.

There are many clear advantages of picking gummy bear implants. Silicone implants are widely recognized to have a far more natural look and feel than saline implants, which can lead to ripples within the skin. Silicone is perfect for larger implants because they weigh less than their saline counterparts, which displace downward over time. Another important point is that silicone implants require a larger incision, as they come pre-filled by the manufacturer, whereas saline implants are filled by cosmetic surgeons after insertion.
Interestingly enough, patients must be at least twenty two to get gummy bear implants, while augmentation with saline implants can be performed on patients as young as eighteen years old. This is mainly because of the larger incision and more complex surgical processes required with removal or changing sizes, again because silicone implants are pre filled and demand a larger surgical incision. Your body type is also very important to think about when choosing implant types. For slim girls with modest levels of breast tissue, the aesthetic benefits of silicone breast implants can clearly outweigh the more complex process. Larger body types may prefer saline implants.
