– Hey, guys, it’s Dr. J. and I’m going to be doing Behind the Mask on what is a Gummy Bear Implant. Hey, guys, it’s Dr. J. here. Gummy Bear Implant vs. Saline Implant vs. Normal Implant. So, a Gummy Bear Implant is just a colloquial word for an implant that’s cohesive, which means if I cut the implant in half, it doesn’t bleed. Does that mean it’s not gonna bleed the rest of the life of the implant. No, not necessarily. The manufacturers give you up to 10 year warranty on this process. What a Gummy Bear is really great for is that it holds its shape whether you’re standing up or lying down. It’s also more projecting than standard implants. So most of our patients love it, because they get this beautiful swoop to the upper part part of their breast, while lifting the bottom part of their breast. Sure, saline has technically less risk because it is salt water. But with implants made so well today, it’s pretty plausible to say that the risks are almost even at this point. So Gummy Bears, we use them for nice, highly-projecting implants with low width, and also to keep its form and shape. And there you go, there’s Gummy Implants, 101 and 102.
