Types of Gummy Bear Implants
Gummy bear implants simulate the weight, texture, and elasticity of real breast tissue better than traditional silicone. This means that after implantation, it will be difficult to tell the difference between a natural and augmented breast tissue. This is ideal for patients who prioritize comfort and aesthetic appearance.
Gummy bear breast implants are soft, yet durable. They are anticipated to last as long, if not longer, than any other silicone implant on the market. This has significant advantages to patients in terms of lifetime cost reduction, long-term health benefits, and peace of mind.
Unlike saline implants, there is no liquid within a Gummy Bear Breast Implant. Instead, the implant is filled with a cohesive gel. This gel is unlikely to escape, even in the event of a tear or breach in the outer shell. This is excellent news for patients concerned with the safety and longevity of their breast implants.
Our Pearl River Gummy bear implants are offered in a variety of sizes, shapes, and textures.
Round implants are offered for patients who are seeking larger, perkier breasts. They have a higher risk of rotating within the breast, but a lower chance of noticeable issues should such rotation occur.
Shaped, or anatomical implants, are more popular. The Gummy Bear Breast Implants are designed to match your natural breast’s shape to ensure you get the size and shape you desire. These implants have a lower risk of rotation within the breast, but should it occur, noticeable breast deformities are more likely.
Gummy bear implants are usually offered with surface textures to help the implant remain stable in the breast. Texturing helps reduce the risk of implants rotating after implantation. Smooth implants are available for those who desire them.
Your Concerns Answered
Most women will experience swelling and mild to moderate pain in the days after breast augmentation with Gummy Bear Breast Implants. Breast augmentation patients often return to work within a week or so, and the stitches are usually removed seven to ten days after the operation. Swelling and pain will decrease over the first couple of weeks. Scars will begin to fade after a few months and continue to lessen for months or years after the surgery.
Breast augmentation always leaves some degree of scarring. Depending on the type of surgery performed, scars may be more or less prominent. Fortunately, Dr. Fiorillo is a highly skilled and experienced surgeon who knows where to make incisions for proper concealment.
The cost of gummy bear implants varies depending on your geographical location and the surgeon you see. Breast augmentation costs may also change based on the procedures you undergo, facility fees, surgical fees, anesthesia fees, and other factors. For this reason, it is best to get the cost of breast augmentation directly from your plastic surgeon during your consultation.
Mild to moderate pain may be expected following your breast surgery. This may be treated with prescribed or over-the-counter medication.

Dr. Fiorillo was trained in Sweden on the use of Gummy Bear Breast Implants for breast augmentation by the creators of the implants. He proved to be so skilled that he was selected to be one of only four surgeons chosen to train other plastic surgeons all across the United States. As such, Dr. Fiorillo is recognized as a leading expert in the U.S. for gummy bear breast implants.
Round implants may move over time. Shaped implants are usually textured, making them unlikely to move.
With Gummy Bear Breast Implants Pearl River patients are getting as safe as any current breast implant can be. That said, breast augmentation always comes with some degree of risk, regardless of implant type. Some such risks include:
Choosing a breast implant is an intensely personal choice. That said, some factors that make Gummy Bear Breast Implants more appealing than traditional implants include:
Yes. Gummy bear implants were approved by the FDA in 2013 and were available in Europe before that. The FDA determined that the Gummy Bear Breast Implants carried no additional risks compared to traditional silicone or saline implants. They can be used for breast augmentation procedures or breast reconstruction surgery.
The manufacturer’s data suggests that Gummy Bear Breast Implants may last as long as 20 or even 25 years under ideal circumstances. Because no Gummy Bear Breast Implants have been in use for that length of time, it is not clear what the implants’ actual life expectancy will be. However, current data suggests that they should last at least as long as the best silicone breast implants on the market.
