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.
