'Gummy Bear' Silicone Gel Implants-San Jose

There are more options now, for women to choose, when seeking Breast Augmentation surgery. Saline, silicone, and now, the form stable, or cohesive gel silicone implants - what you've probably heard referred to as the Gummy Bear implant, (because of its similar feel to the popular candy when compressed.)  

In this type of implant, the silicone gel has a more natural-feeling consistency, and holds its shape in a more natural way. When sliced in half, rather than migrate outside the implant shell, the silicone gel remains in place, in a stable form.

That is the style of implant chosen by this patient. In her forties, she was interested in a rejuvenated appearance of her smaller B-cup breasts. After discussing her options with Dr. Vincent Lepore, and trying a number of styles and sizes of implants, she chose a high profile type of silicone gel implant.

She is very pleased with her results, and the natural look and feel of her Breast Augmentation.
