Are gummy bear breast implants better than silicone?
Gummy bear implants look much more natural, but aren't they at risk of turning upside down and looking weird?
When people say "gummy bear" implants, they are talking about silicone implants. They are the same thing. These implants can be round or anatomically shaped. The round implants can turn and still look the same, but if the shaped implants turn, then this may need to be fixed since it won't look right. I prefer the round implants for this reason, and most people are excellent candidates for this. Of course, every individual situation is different, so the round implants may not be right for all people. You should meet with a board certified PS to find out your options and figure out which will be best for you. Best of luck!

Gummy bear implants are silicone - they are made of highly cohesive gel. This is a firmer gel than regular silicone implants, which are made of cohesive gel. Gummy bear implants can be round or shaped (anatomic). Shaped gummy bear implants are made of a textured surface to reduce the risk of rotation. There are differences in opinion on the indications of using gummy bear implants. Some think that they give a more natural appearance, and also increases upper pole fullness. Personally, I think gummy bear implants are too firm and do not give enough projection. I find that smooth round over-filled (Inspira) implants give the most natural, aesthetic result.
