And note: all gel implants are considered cohesive, it’s just that Gummy Bear implants are more cohesive which allows them to maintain their shape.
Imagine being in your seventies or eighties. You are in great health; you live an active lifestyle and enjoy a wonderful quality of life. You wake up one morning and stretch—you feel energized and ready to tackle your day.
