Many women are unhappy with the size and shape of their breasts. They may feel less than, have reduced confidence with dating, and not feel feminine. If you have been thinking about breast implants, now is the time to round out your figure with gummy bear implants. 

What Are Gummy Implants?

Gummy bear implants, also called gummy implants and highly cohesive gel implants, are a new type of breast implant that look more natural than other types of implants due to their tear drop shape. Gummy implants have all the softness of saline implants, with reduced risk of rupture. 

Most breast implants are made of either saline or silicone. Gummy bear implants are made with a durable silicone shell and a silicone gel filling. Because the silicone gel is so thick, it will not leak out and cause health risks in the event of a rupture.

The biggest benefit of gummy implants is that they mimic the natural droop of the breasts for a more natural look. This makes gummy implants ideal for women who want a fuller figure.

    Why Are They Called Gummy Bear Implants?

    The real name for this type of implant is “highly cohesive gel implant.” The nickname “gummy bear implants” is obviously much catchier and easier to remember. The moniker “gummy implant” comes from the fact that the gel inside the silicone shell has a consistency a lot like jello.

    Saline implants are filled with liquid saline. This means that the filling inside the silicone shell has the consistency of tea. Since saline is commonly used for medical purposes, it will not harm you in any way.

    Why Should I Consider Gummy Bear Implants To Enhance My Assets?

    When women get breast implants, they have 3 choices for the type of implant. One option is saline implants, which are made from a silicone shell and liquid saline filling. Another popular option is silicone implants, which are made with a silicone shell and silicone gel filling. Gummy bear implants are one of the most desirable implants on the market for 2 major reasons: 

    1. Gummy Implants Look More Natural

    Most women in Orange County come to Qazi Cosmetic Clinic because they want results that fit to their frame and look natural enough that it isn’t immediately obvious that they have implants. 

    Dr. Qazi always recommends gummy bear implants for patients who want natural results. Because gummy implants are tear drop shaped instead of perfectly round, they mimic how breasts naturally sit on the chest. 

    2. Desired Texture

    Usually the first factor that women consider when getting breast implants is the size. The second factor is the texture. While you may not think very much about the texture of your natural breasts, the texture of implants determines how natural your new breasts will feel. 

    Silicone and gummy implants are highly recommended for women who want soft, natural-feeling breasts. These types of implants mimic the consistency of breast tissue by balancing firmness with squeezability. 

    Even if you don’t think about the texture of your breasts now, after your implants, you will certainly love the new feel. 

    In a study that surveyed women who recently got implants, 75% of participants who chose silicone or gummy implants report that the firmness was “just right.”

    What You Can Expect When You Get Gummy Bear Implants

    If you are considering breast implants, the first thing you should do is schedule a consultation with Dr. Qazi. During this initial, no-obligation meeting, you should ask questions, explain your goals, and discuss the size and shape that you want.

    If there is a type of implant or an insertion method that you prefer, be sure to let Dr. Qazi know. If you do not know what you are after, Dr. Qazi can make a recommendation regarding the size, material, and placement method of your implants. 

    The second step is to get the procedure scheduled. Please note that you will need to take 7 to 10 days off work. Dr. Qazi normally advises against trying to work remotely during your recovery because you will need to be able to focus on taking care of yourself. If you have a more physically demanding job, you may need to take more time off. 

    This is what recovery looks like for most women week by week: 

    Immediately after the procedure: You will be sleepy and a little sore. Someone will need to drive you home and take care of you for the first few days. Before you leave, your chest will be wrapped in a supportive garment and you will be taught how to care for the area. 

    Week 1: You will experience the most discomfort in the first 3 to 5 days. Prescription or OTC medications will ease the pain. At the end of the first week, you should be able to resume your normal non-strenuous activities, such as shopping, cooking, going to work, and attending social gatherings. 

    Weeks 2-3: The soreness and swelling should be gone or mostly gone by week 3. If you have a physically demanding job, you are safe to return to work after 3 weeks. You will also be able to resume forms of exercise that do not put strain on the chest. Running, biking, certain yoga poses, and swimming are all safe. Push ups, bench press, dips, and use of a rowing machine should be avoided. 

    Weeks 4-6: You should be completely recovered by 6 weeks. At this time, you can safely resume all normal activity and chest-related exercises. 

    Month 6: It normally takes 6 months for any scars to fade enough to not be noticeable by others. Your new breasts will also have settled into their final shape and size by month 6. If you need an excuse to buy even more cute, new bras, your 6 month anniversary is the perfect excuse to do it!

      Frequently Asked Questions About Gummy Implants

      Who is the ideal candidate for gummy bear breast implants?

      The ideal candidate for this type of implant is anyone over the age of 22 who wants more volume in their chest and is prepared for the procedure. The reason why age 22 is the magic number for gummy implants has to do with the manufacturer’s warranty and the development of breast tissue. If this type of implant is used by a woman who is less than 22 years old, the manufacturer may not honor the warranty. It is also important for breast tissue to be fully developed; this normally occurs around age 18. 

      Are gummy bear implants safe?

      Yes, gummy bear implants have been FDA-approved since 2006. This tool for augmenting the figure has been repeatedly tested and evaluated for the last 15 years.

      Why do women choose to get breast implants?

      There are many reasons why women choose to get breast augmentation. The primary one is that it is her body, therefore her choice. Since 2013, breast augmentation has been the most popular among women aged 30 to 39. For this group, many women choose augmentation because they want to reclaim and restore their bodies after childbirth and breastfeeding. Since breastfeeding often causes the breasts to droop and lose volume, procedures like implants or a breast lift are a popular part of a “mommy makeover.” 

      For most women, breast implants are not about being more appealing to men. Most women get boob jobs because they want to love the body that they see in the mirror. They want clothing to fit right and for their figure to be balanced. There is no wrong reason to get breast augmentation. In fact, it is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the U.S.. 

      Can I combine breast implants with other procedures?

      Yes, implants are easy to combine with procedures like a breast lift, liposuction, or tummy tuck. If you want to combine procedures, be sure to discuss it with Dr. Qazi during your consultation

      How can I make my recovery easier after I get my gummy bear implants?

      There are several life hacks for making your recovery easier, Dr. Qazi recommends:

      • Resist the urge to manipulate the treatment area. You will have plenty of time to enjoy your new breasts after you heal. 
      • Avoid sleeping face down. 
      • Be prepared to do nothing. Strenuous activity, even chores, can harm your results or tear your stitches. Just sit back, relax, and watch all those cheesy guilty pleasure movies. 
      • Stay hydrated and maintain your usual diet. 
      • Apply a cold compress to any sore areas for 20 minutes on, then 20 minutes off. Never place an ice pack directly on your skin.
