Gummy Bear Implants Vs Silicone Implants: What Women Prefer and Why

One of the greatest decisions to make when considering breast implant is what kind of implant to use. Presently, most of the potential breast implant patients in New York and nationally prefer silicone implants. The main reason for this is because silicone implants tend to look and feel more natural compared to saline implants.

When considering silicone implants, patients have the option of choosing between gummy bear breast implants or the traditional highly cohesive gel silicone implants. Both have their merits and demerits, and your plastic surgeon will advice you appropriately depending on your specific needs. However, research show that most women in New York tend to lean towards the traditional highly cohesive silicone gel implants more than the gummy bear implants.

The traditional highly cohesive silicone breast implants are soft and tend to have a more bouncy feeling than the gummy bear breast implants. Women with the traditional silicone implants always report that they feel like a soft, natural breast more than those with gummy bear implants.

Gummy bear implants on the other hand are form stable, to mean that they can retain their shape when cut into half. The implants can be shaped like a tear drop or the can be round and they tend to be firmer and harder than the traditional silicone implants.

To give a clear comparison of the two, think of the traditional silicone implant as a cube of jell and gummy bear breast implant as a jelly bean. Both are form stable and soft. They will both maintain their shapes when cut in to half, but gummy bear implants will be firmer and less squeezable. The traditional silicone implants on the other hand will be more pliant and softer. Due to this, most women considering breast implant in New York tend to prefer the traditional silicone implants.
