Gummy Bear Implants

If you’re thinking about breast implants, either for a breast augmentation or a breast lift with augmentation, the type of implant you choose is very important. Luckily, there are a lot of good, safe choices for you today. No matter what you choose, you should know about the new “Gummy Bear” style silicone gel implant.

bryan-smDr. Bryan Criswell explains, “This new, highly cohesive silicone gel breast implant is a great option for our patients. It is form stable, so it’s perfect for patients who desire a firmer breast. Clearly, as seen in this video, if there ever was a rupture of the implant shell, the gel does not run out.”

These “Gummy Bear” implants are known as “fifth generation breast implants”, “form stable breast implants” or “highly cohesive gel breast implants”. Each is a different way of describing an implant that retains its shape. Although “Gummy bear” is not a medical term, these implants are often described this way. They give our Charlotte breast augmentation patients even more choice in breast implant surgery than ever before.

Our board certified plastic surgeons at Criswell & Criswell Plastic Surgery offer these gummy bear implants for both straight forward augmentations as well as combination breast lifts with implants. With the availability of highly cohesive silicone gel implants in Charlotte North Carolina, you can be assured that there is a right implant for you. And you can feel safe knowing that all of the implant is incomplete.
