Gummy Bear Breast Implants Provide Patients With An Additional Choice For Breast Enhancement

Breast Implants – Gummy Bear Option Provides an Additional Choice for Tampa, FL, Patients

breast-implants-tampaBreast implants containing a unique cohesive silicone gel are available to Tampa, Florida-area patients at the Bayside Center for Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. Commonly referred to as “gummy bear implants,” this type of high-strength silicone implant gained its nickname because, when cut in half, it remains stable and retains its shape, just like the famous gelatin-based, fruit-flavored candies shaped in the form of a bear.* Since founding the center in 2008, Dr. John Roach, a renowned breast surgeon, has utilized gummy bear breast implants in numerous breast enhancement procedures he’s performed on women throughout the Tampa area.

A popular option among surgeons and patients alike, gummy bear breast implants are filled with silicone gel that contains a special component to make the molecules bind together, thus helping the implant to maintain its firmness and uniformity. This quality provides a “tear-drop” shape to the breast, which is believed by many to provide a more anatomical look and natural feel than other silicone options. In addition, the increased firmness may serve to inhibit the breast pocket from contracting around the implant, thereby reducing the risk of capsular contracture.

If you are in the Tampa, FL, area and would like to learn more about gummy bear breast implants, you can rely on the knowledge and expertise of Dr. Roach to help you make an informed decision on whether this option is the best choice for you.

*The nickname “gummy bear implant” is regularly used throughout the medical community and is in no way meant to trivialize this sophisticated medical device.
