Gummy Bear Implants
Are you looking for naturally shaped breasts that feel as real as they look? Do you want to avoid ripples in your breast implants?
Gummy bear implants, which mimic the feel of natural breast tissue, might be the right choice for you.
At Robles Plastic Surgery in Phoenix, AZ, we explain the unique properties of gummy bear implants.
What Are Gummy Bear Implants A Great Option for a Beautiful Silhouette
A small or flat chest can affect the way that clothing fits, making you feel self-conscious. If you are considering breast augmentation but are conflicted about which type of breast implants to choose, the team at Robles Plastic Surgery can help. We offer a full range of saline and silicone breast implant options to patients from Phoenix, Scottsdale, Avondale, and surrounding areas, including the gummy bear option.
These FDA-approved breast implants are filled with highly cohesive silicone gel that has a consistency similar to the candy from which they take their name. These unique silicone breast implants are tear-drop shaped to mimic the shape and feel of a natural breast. When placed in the breasts, they create a perky, more youthful silhouette.
A Distinctive Tear-Drop Shape
Reasons to Consider the "Gummy Bear" The Benefits of Highly Cohesive Gel Implants
Natural Tear-Drop Shape
Gummy bear breast implants have a natural, anatomically correct breast shape that produces more lifelike results.
A Natural Feel
These silicone implants have a more natural feel than saline implants.* The highly cohesive gel is designed to feel soft yet firm, much like real breast tissue.
Less Likely to Leak
The highly cohesive silicone gel filler helps the material stay intact, even if the outer shell ruptures.
Virtually No Ripples
This option offers little to no ripple formation due to gummy bear "shape" memory, which maintains contours even when the implant moves. Saline, and to a lesser degree, traditional silicone implants, are associated with higher ripple rates.

Breast Augmentation Results Before and After Photos
Are You a Good Candidate?
These unique implants are appropriate for a variety of people. They are especially advantageous for people with a slender or athletic build, or those seeking breast reconstruction that results in natural-looking and feeling breast with fullness in the lower portion of the breast.
Gummy bear implants can be a great option for:
- Patients over the age of 22, which is the general age requirement for silicone implants
- Patients with very small breasts who need to enhance both shape and volume
- Those undergoing breast reconstruction following a mastectomy or trauma
Combining Breast Lift with Enhancement
Many patients also receive a breast lift at the same time that they get implants to achieve more comprehensive results. During your consultation, Dr. Robles will review options to consider as part of a personalized treatment plan.
Or course, anyone seeking treatment should be in good overall health and not have any health conditions that could compromise their safety. Dr. Robles will conduct a thorough medical evaluation to determine if you are in good health.
Gummy Bear Implants vs. Other Options
Highly cohesive silicone gel implants are generally more expensive than saline implants, but they offer extremely lifelike results. We want every patient to have access to the results they truly want, so we offer monthly specials and flexible financing through CareCredit to make this option affordable.
Dr. Robles may need to make a larger incision when inserting a gummy bear implant because it is pre-filled. This can result in a longer surgery and scar. Our team will instruct you on how to care for your incisions to ensure a rapid recovery and promote discreet scarring that will become less noticeable as you heal.*
Rotation and Other Complications
Most, but not all, gummy bear implants have a textured surface to help them avoid rotating out of their proper orientation and making your breast look misshapen. Capsular contracture is another complication that can make the breasts look misshapen. In these cases, revision surgery is required.
"His Work Speaks Volumes" A 5-Star Review
"Dr. Robles is a trusted physican and his work speaks volumes. He’s caring and compassionate in his bedside manner. He listens to all of your concerns and provides realistic treatment options for all of his clients. I will continue to be a life long patient of his." SMGarber
Things to Consider
Each type of implant for breast augmentation has its own unique benefits, considerations, and risks.
Your concerns and goals may require a different solution other than breast augmentation. For example, breast augmentation doesn't correct droopiness. For that, you should consider a breast lift instead.
Breast Implant Options
During a consultation, Dr. Robles will go over all your choices, and explain the wide range of breast augmentation options we offer in addition to gummy bears. You can rely on his experience and expertise to recommend treatments suitable for your goals and body type.
Whatever your choice in implants, it's helpful to understand that breast implants aren't guaranteed to last a lifetime. The longer a woman has breast implants, whether saline, silicone, or gummy bear, the more likely the need to replace or remove them. Complications with breast augmentation may include capsular contracture or implant rupture.
