Among the many questions I hear regarding a breast augmentation at my practice, one question that gets constantly asked is what the difference is between gummy bear, teardrop, and round implant shapes.
24-Hour Rapid Recovery For Breast Augmentation
Thousands of women get a breast augmentation each year. Every patient I treat for a breast augmentation procedure has minimal pain, swelling, and bruising. This includes 24-hour rapid recovery time and remarkably natural-looking results have resulted in proven patient satisfaction. I use sophisticated new techniques that expedite healing, reduce pain and discomfort to an absolute minimum, and allow you to return to your regular day-to-day activities. I make sure to listen closely to your goals and take careful note of the enhancements you wish to achieve, your body type, and other factors to determine whether you are a suitable candidate for the mini-incision approach.
Breast Implant Shape Options During Breast Augmentation Surgery
Gummy bear implants are silicone breast implants with a more solid consistency than traditional silicone breast implants. Gummy bear implants are a truly unique new option for women considering breast augmentation surgery. This new silicone implant hangs together as a cohesive whole that is pliable, but retains its original shape. Teardrop implants have a teardrop shape whereby gravity pulls most of the breast mass downward, and it becomes slimmer toward the collar bone. Round implants can shift into any position without altering the breast shape.
How Long Do Implants Last?
Many patients ask if implants are made to last forever. Neither silicon nor saline implants are planned to last forever, a women will eventually need to replace the implants. Three years after the implant, the FDA recommends an MRI screening. If an implant ruptures there are no dangerous effects that a patient will ever need to worry about.
