Choose Textured Gummy Implants for Your Breast Augmentation

Posted June 11, 2020 in Breast Augmentation

3 Min Read: 

Women choose breast augmentation surgery for a variety of reasons. Some women want breast implants because they have never been happy with the size of their breasts. Other women feel they need breast implants to recover from the changes breastfeeding has done to their bodies. And, some women simply have never been happy with the shape of their breasts. Whatever the reason, it is undeniable breast augmentation is a solution more women are turning to. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, breast augmentation is the top procedure of all plastic surgeries in the United States.

One concern many women have with breast augmentation is that they want the most realistic implants possible. Textured gummy bear implants, made with highly cohesive, form-stable gel, are a top choice for realistic breast implants. This product has become a preferred choice for many plastic surgeons over the traditional silicone and saline options.

What Are Textured Gummy Implants?

Breast implants are made up of an outer silicone shell that is filled with various materials on the inside. The standard breast implants on the market are typically filled with either standard silicone gel or saline solution.

Gummy bear implants are made up of a silicone outer shell filled with a highly cohesive silicone gel. This silicone gel is thicker than the one used in traditional silicone implants. Textured gummy implants also have a rough outer surface (opposed to the smooth surface of some older implants). This rough surface grasps onto the natural breast tissue once it is inserted, guaranteeing that it does not shift or rotate in the breast pocket to ensure that it does not become irregularly shaped or placed in the breast.

What Are the Benefits of Textured Gummy Implants?

Textured gummy implants are considered the top choice for breast implants. That is because, compared to other silicone implants, gummy implants retain their shape without being hard, leaving the breasts feeling naturally soft to the touch.

Additionally, unlike other silicone-based breast implants, textured gummy bear implants often retain their shape even if their shells are broken. This allows the gel to maintain its shape in the case of a rupture and reduces the risk of silicone escaping from the breast pocket.

Are Textured Gummy Implants Available in the Round Shape?

Breast implants typically come in two shapes: round and teardrop. Until recently, gummy implants were only available in the teardrop form, while traditional implants were available in the round shape. The round shape is preferred by many women looking for significant augmentation who are afraid of their implant rotating in the chest to create an unnatural shape. Round textured gummy implants allow women to achieve natural-looking fullness and shape without having to worry about a rotated teardrop implant getting in the way.

Caraga Plastic Surgery is excited to offer it’s patients the best of both worlds: textured gummy implants with a round shape.
