Although the risk of experiencing an implant rupture is fairly low, many patients are still apprehensive about undergoing breast augmentation surgery due to the potential risk. At The Center for Cosmetic Surgery, we take the time to understand the concerns of our patients so that we can find an effective solution.
When it comes to reducing the risk of experiencing an implant rupture, the type of implant used makes a significant difference. Form-stable gummy bear implants are made from a silicone gel that is incased in a silicone shell. Gummy bear implants reduce the risk of experiencing an implant rupture by half when compared to traditional silicone implants.
Each type of implant offers a specific set of benefits, so it is important that you thoroughly discuss each option before deciding on which is the right one for you. If you are interested in using gummy bear implants for your breast augmentation procedure, contact our office to schedule a consultation.
