Saline, Silicone, or Gummy Bear – Which Breast Implant Type Should I Choose for Natural Looking Breast Implants and Results?
You may have heard that gummy bear implants are the key to achieving a natural look from your Charlotte breast augmentation surgery. We love gummy bear breast implants and find that they do offer many advantages, but they certainly aren’t the only way to achieve breast augmentation results you’ll love. In fact, each implant type offers distinct benefits. As you prepare for your breast plastic surgery, your plastic surgeon will help you choose an appropriate breast implant type for your aesthetic goals.
- Saline Breast Implants – Saline implants are popular amongst younger patients. They are FDA-approved for cosmetic use in patients age 18+, while silicone options are approved for women that are at least 22. Saline breast implants are one of the most affordable breast implant options. To achieve a natural look, saline implants require good tissue coverage.
- Silicone Breast Implants – Silicone implants feel like a natural breast, even before they are placed in the body. They are one of the most popular breast implant types.
- Gummy Bear Implants – Cohesive silicone implants, aka gummy bear implants, are one of the newest types of breast implants. They are a type of silicone implant and are filled with a thick, highly cohesive silicone filling. If you feel the implant outside of the breast, it has a similar feel to a gummy bear. This implant type is known for its anatomical shape. The top is thinner and the bottom thicker, much like a natural breast shape. Cohesive gel implants are also very unlikely to leak, due to the thick consistency of the filling.
We use all three breast implant types and achieve natural looking breast implants and results with each of them. In some cases, to get natural looking results, your breast surgery may also involve different types of cosmetic surgery procedures such as a breast lift surgery.
The Most Important Factor for Determining Breast Augmentation Results
Are gummy bear implants the secret to natural looking breast augmentation results? Although gummy bear implants can create stunning, natural looking breast implants, they aren’t the key to breast augmentation success. More important than your implant type is your choice of surgeon. A good plastic surgeon can create beautiful results from saline, silicone, and gummy bear implants.
Choose board-certified plastic surgeons with experience performing body cosmetic surgery and breast surgeries. At H/K/B, our surgeons have performed hundreds of successful breast augmentation procedures, creating results that look and feel natural. Our patients are generally delighted with their new breasts after breast augmentation surgery.
