Gummy Bear Implants

In my practice I just recently started using the new high strength silicone-gel breast implants, or as people may know as “Gummy Bear Implants..  These implants were approved in March 2012 by the US Food and Drug Administration and are manufactured by Sientra. The FDA approved Sientra’s breast implant product after extensive clinical testing which included three years worth of clinical data for 1,788 patients.  The unique advantage of these implants is that they are semi-solid, they maintain their shape and remain in an upright  position.  They look and feel of a natural breast, they are soft to the touch and maintain their shape for a natural upright appearance. While not all patients will benefit from this type of implant, some certainly will. Choosing a breast implant remains a very personalized and situational decision based on each patient’s unique needs.
