Women Are Sweet On ‘Gummy Bear Breast Implants’
FREDERICK, Md. (Wireless Flash) – For years, plastic surgeons have been striving to find a breast implant that feels more natural. They may have found the solution in a simple sweet treat: Gummy bears.
The so-called Cohesive Gel, nicknamed the “Gummy Bear Breast Implant,” is made from an inedible, semi-solid silicone and feels almost exactly like a gummy bear, according to Dr. Donald W. Kress, one of a handful of U.S. doctors who have begun offering the implant to patients.
He prefers the “Gummy Bear Implant” to saline or silicone-filled bags, saying there’s less chance of leakage or wrinkling with the more solid implant.
Currently, the “Gummy Bear Implant” comes in 20 sizes and five shapes, including a teardrop style and both high and low projection models.
Dr. Kress has installed the new implants in 160 of his patients so far and says 90 percent of his new clients prefer them to old school implants.
