The most recent development in the breast implant industry is gummy bear breast implants. Even if one of these implants is punctured or cut in half, there is no liquid to leak out. This new generation of breast implants is also referred to as form-stable cohesive gel implants.
Gummy Bear Vs. Traditional Saline Vs. Traditional Silicone Gel - What is the difference?
Gummy Bear Breast Enhancement Devices
Many women choose form-stable cohesive gel implants for their consistency. Unlike traditional silicone gel and saline implants, a ruptured or punctured gummy bear implant will not affect the way a woman’s breast looks. Therefore, in the event of a rupture or puncture, immediate replacement is not necessary.
Traditional Saline Implants
Saline implants consist of silicone shells filled with sterile salt water (saline). If a saline implant ruptures, the salt water leaks out quickly and although the saline will not harm the body, the size of the breast will decrease. For this reason, immediate replacement is typically required.
