What Are Gummy Bear Implants?

Updated: Oct 23, 2022

Gummy bear implants are one of the most common breast implant alternatives. The term "gummy bear implants" refers to Sientra brand prostheses. Most patients are unaware that gummy bear implants refer to any teardrop-shaped ones. Gummy bear implants, also known as cohesive gel silicone implants, maintain their form for a long time. In contrast to traditional silicone and saline implants influenced by gravity and the patient's breast shape, gummy bear implants have a distinct form that the breasts adapt to once they're inserted. The breast will still have the same form it had before surgery. There is less rippling, folds, and no little leakage because of the implant's form.

Is It a Good Idea for Me to Get Gummy Bear Implants?

The following are some of the GOOD CANDIDATES for gummy bear implants:

  • Women who do not have any presently existing breast condition.

  • Women who are not pregnant or nursing.

  • Females who want to achieve natural, balanced-looking results

  • Because breast implants have a gradual downward slope and are placed closer to the muscle, they produce smaller breasts in women with less breast tissue.

Those who are NOT GOOD CANDIDATES include:

  • A normal breast form is defined by a woman's breasts having medium to high fullness.

  • Nursing or pregnant females

  • Who wants implants for the sake of someone else's pleasure?

What Are Gummy Bear Implants, And How Are They Done?

Breast augmentation with gummy bear implants is often a day surgery that does not necessitate a hospital stay for the patient. Before an enormous horizontal incision is made along the breast's crease, general anesthesia is used. The incision is placed here so that any scars are hidden from view.

After the incision is made, the surgeon makes a pocket for each breast where the gummy bear implants are placed behind the chest muscle. It is preferable to place them beneath the muscle since additional skin and tissue will cover the implant. The cuts are then closed with stitches after giving them a similar appearance.

Types of Incisions

Breast implant surgery is a minimally invasive procedure that offers considerable aesthetic benefits compared to traditional breast augmentation techniques. The incision chosen for breast implant placement depends on the implants used. Round and teardrop-shaped implants can be inserted via an incision, except inside the armpit. The following are some of the possible incision sites:

  • Inframammary (below the breast folds)

  • Periareolar (around the nipple)

  • Transaxillary (across the armpit).

Shaped implants need a slightly longer incision than round ones. Because shaped implants are less compressible, the surgeon cannot compact it down small enough to force it through a tiny incision. However, round implants can be squeezed down to microscopic size (with the edge fed into the incision) and then pushed inside by the surgeon.

Saline vs. Silicone

Silicone implants are less prone to rippling, but they're also heavier than saline implants. Even though both types have the same volume, saline implants are more likely to ripple and be hefty. Saline implants are more solid since they are less compressible. However, the capsular contracture rate is quite high. Surgeons consider silicone implants softer, feel more natural, weigh less, and do not stretch tissues out as much aesthetically.

If a saline implant ruptures, the body will absorb the saline. The patient will be aware of an implant problem since her breasts will shrink. Because silicone implants are filled with silicone gel, they don't seep, so the breast size and shape won't alter. Unless she gets an MRI, the patient will not realize there is a tear in the silicone implant.

Gummy Bear Implants Costs

The price of gummy bear breast implants differs from surgeon to surgeon. The cost also depends on the region in which the operation is done and any fees charged by the doctor or facility. In general, gummy bear implant surgery costs between $3000 and $7500 per pair.

Recovery And Downtime

The RECOVERY time is determined by whether the implant is placed under or above the muscle. If the prosthetic is placed beneath the muscle, spasms in the muscle may occur, causing discomfort. Muscle relaxants and other medicines might be used to relieve any spasms associated with under-muscle implants. After the operation, patients will wear bandages and compressive clothing for a set amount of time, as determined by the surgeon, to aid any swelling reduction. Because it must stay in its correct position to deliver optimal results, a teardrop-shaped implant necessitates at least six weeks of recovery. Pectoral activities should be avoided for 12 weeks for implants located beneath the muscle because the muscle will push on the implant and relocate it around the pocket.

Following surgery, patients are advised to rest during their DOWNTIME. They should avoid doing heavy lifting or other rigorous activities for at least two weeks. They may then resume normal daily tasks when told by their doctor that they are permitted to do so.


If you compare how your breasts look and feel before surgery with how they appear and feel after, you will notice a significant difference. The implants may be slightly firm at first, but the breasts might feel stiffer. As swelling diminishes and tissues relax, the implant will feel softer and more natural. Round implants might give you an overabundance of fullness in your upper breast that takes several months to resolve. On the other hand, shaped implants generally take longer to become super soft.

In general, gummy bear implants may last 10-20 years before they need to be replaced. The length of time they endure depends on the patient's continuing to live a healthy lifestyle and following any post-op instructions.

Gummy Bear Implants' Drawbacks

The following are some of the disadvantages of using gummy bear implants:

  • Because of their more average breast size, some ladies are not ideal prospects.

  • Because the implants can't be reshaped or compressed to fit through a tiny incision, a greater incision is required for placement.

  • Pregnant or nursing women are not allowed to get gummy bear implants.

Gummy Bear Implant Risks

Gummy bear implants are relatively low-risk procedures, but there are a few potential dangers to consider.

  • Contracture of the capsular

  • Bruising

  • Rippling, leakage and folds.

  • Tightness and pressure

  • Infection

  • After surgery, scars may appear on the breasts.

  • Swelling

  • Implant rotation

Consult With a Medical Professional About the Procedure.

Gummy bear implants last for a long time and make people look younger. The variety of breast implant choices might be perplexing to some patients, so scheduling a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon is an essential first step in the process. Gummy bear implants are popular. However, they may not be the ideal option for various reasons, including the patient's present breast size. The physician will go through all of her breast implant choices with the patient to see if gummy bear implants are suitable for achieving the desired outcomes.
