Gummy bear implants are breast implants made out of a high strength silicone gel. These types of breast implants are designed to replicate both the look and the feel of natural breast tissue. Unlike liquid filled saline or silicone breast implants, gummy bear implants are semi solid, which allow the implants to maintain their shape. Gummy bear implants do not wrinkle, fold, or ripple the way liquid implants are known to do, and if cut, the silicone gel stays in place and does not leak like liquid. These implants are becoming increasingly popular due to their natural feel and shape. They remain soft yet firm, just like natural breasts, and are generally less likely to shift or lose their shape and placement the way thinner liquid implants do.
- The FDA approved gummy bear breast implants in 2006 in America.
- Gummy bear gel implants have been used in Europe since 1995.
