Gummy Bear Breast Implants
Gummy bear implants are fifth-generation silicone breast implants designed to offer the safest and highest-quality results by creating a more natural profile. They have numerous advantages over earlier types of breast implants, including safety, shape, and life expectancy.
If you are interested in breast augmentation, gummy bear implants are certainly a choice to consider.
What Are the Benefits 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 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.

Do You Have Gummy Bear Implant Concerns?
Most women will experience swelling and mild to moderate pain in the days after breast augmentation with a gummy bear implant. 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.

Round implants may move over time. Shaped implants are usually textured, making them unlikely to move.

How long do gummy bear implants last?
The manufacturer’s data suggests that gummy bear 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.
