The term Gummy Bear Implants refers to a breast augmentation performed with gel implants that are highly cohesive, or form-stable. What this means is that the gel implant (as opposed to a saline implant) retains its shape. Gummy Bear is certainly not a medical term, but it’s a buzzword that’s been widely used. It was chosen because the gel is slightly firmer than round silicone implants and has the feel of the candy Gummy Bears. 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. But when you go look in your bathroom mirror, you’re staring at a reflection of someone who looks much older than what you feel. The signs of your age—perhaps sagging skin, wrinkles and sunspots—don’t really reflect how healthy and young you feel on the inside.
Breast augmentation surgery is an effective way to change your body and achieve the desired look you’ve always wanted. After your surgery, much of the focus of your recovery will be placed on your own healing and recuperation. Once you’ve completed the healing process, however, your thinking will shift elsewhere as you learn how to properly care for your breast implants. After all, you’re going to be spending a lot of time together in the coming years, so you want your breast implants to look just as great as they did the day you first got them.
