Halloween is round the corner, but women in New York have something other than candy in mind as they gush over gummy bear implants. If you want to boost your bust line, you have to decide if you want to have saline breast augmentation, silicone breast implants, or the latest gummy bear implants. Trick or treat? To make sure that you make an informed decision, run an eye over the benefits of gummy bear implants over saline and the standard silicone breast implants.

What are Gummy Bear Implants?

Gummy bear breast implants are also known as cohesive silicone gel implants. These come in distinct forms and are firm but soft and malleable, just like gummy bear candies. The differences between these sophisticated implants and its counterparts—the saline and the silicone breast implants—are in their respective compositions, forms, and textures. These differences, in turn, impart a unique set of advantages to gummy bear implants.

Gummy Bear Implants vs. Saline Breast Augmentation and Silicone Breast Implants

Gummy bear implants score over saline and standard silicone breast implants on multiple fronts.


The gel-like compound inside gummy bear implants has a compact or cohesive molecular structure. This gives the implants their characteristic firmness and distinct shapes. So these implants retain their shapes for much longer than either the saline or the standard silicone breast implants and are not affected by gravitational pull. Because gummy bear breast implants have distinct shapes and are tough, the shells do not collapse and create ungainly folds and waves that scream boob job.

Because gummy bear implants are firm, they retain their shapes whatever be the natural shape of the breast. The implants don’t have to “settle” and take the form of the breast tissues and muscles. The opposite happens; the breast muscles and tissues mold themselves around the implant and secure it in place. This reduces the recovery period, and you can flaunt your newly-enhanced bust line soon after the surgery.

Natural Appearance and Comfort

But in spite of their firmness, gummy bear implants are more flexible than either saline or the standard silicone breast implants and impart a naturally fuller look.

Gummy bear implants have a unique textured surface that prevents adjacent tissue from scarring and hardening around the implant during the healing process in a phenomenon known as capsule contracture that makes the breast firm. Wearing the implants becomes uncomfortable while the hardened areas may look unreal. The textured surface of gummy bear breast implants prevents capsule contracture that is a common side effect of both saline breast augmentation and silicone breast implants.


The greatest disadvantage of saline breast augmentation is the tendency of the implants to leak along the fold lines and into the body. Saline water leaking into the body is a potential health concern. The breast flattens and you have to replace the implant. Gummy bear implants usually do not develop fold lines, so there is less chance of the implant shell disintegrating. Even if the shell breaks in rare cases, there is not much leakage because these implants have more solid filling than liquid. The cohesive nature of the gel also contains the leakage in one place, so it does not move to any other part of the body.

Gummy bear implants increase the success rate of a breast augmentation job manifold times than either saline or the standard silicone breast implants. These sophisticated implants are firm yet flexible, stable over a longer time and much safer than its counterparts, impart a more natural look, and feel comfortable. Gummy bear implants have shorter recovery periods than others. This Halloween, give yourself a makeover and a sweet one too!
