ATLANTA, Sept. 1, 2015
ATLANTA, Sept. 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --Breast implant technology is constantly evolving, and women pursuing breast augmentation surgery have more options than ever. The newest addition, highly cohesive silicone gel implants, is quickly gaining popularity for its natural look and feel, decreased complication rate, and quick results. These form-stable, shaped gel silicone implants are often referred to as "gummy bear implants" because of their texture, which resembles the firm yet pliable consistency of gummy bear candies.
"There are several benefits to shaped gel implants, including increased safety and a more natural look," says Dr. Paul D. Feldman, one of the board certified plastic surgeons at Advanced Aesthetics. "For the right patient, these implants can offer a beautiful, long-lasting result."
The texture, placement technique, and highly cohesive gel of these implants make them one of the safer options currently available. According to board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Edward S. Gronka, there is a lower complication rate, including a decreased risk of capsular contracturea condition that involves the painful development of scar tissue that can tighten and squeeze the breast implant. "Capsular contracture continues to be a concern for breast augmentation patients, though this uncomfortable condition is becoming increasingly rare," states Dr. Gronka. "Shaped gel implants further lessen the risk, giving many women increased peace of mind."
Additionally, shaped gel implants offer a number of aesthetic benefits for the right patient. Although these implants are firmer than previous generations, the cohesive silicone gel provides a stable though flexible consistency that resembles the look and feel of natural breast tissue. The shape and texture of the implant also reduces the risk of rippling and implant visibility, particularly for more petite patients.
"While highly cohesive silicone gel implants aren't the right fit for everyone, there are a number of women who benefit greatly from them," says board certified surgeon Joseph Raniere, Jr., M.D. points out. "Women without much http://www.san-diego-plastic-surgery-cosmetic-surgery-doctors.us/san-diego-plastic-surgery-cosmetic-surgery-directory.html natural breast tissue, athletes, and breast reconstruction patients are all wonderful candidates."
A benefit all patients can enjoy is the reduced recovery timeline: gummy bear implants offer faster visible results and don't require the usual six month settling period typical of other implants. Over time, they are also less likely to rupture, collapse, or develop other long-term complications that can arise.
"Patients interested in gummy bear breast implants in Atlanta should first and foremost schedule an appointment with a board certified plastic surgeon," says Joel M. Stewart, Jr. M.D. "A thorough consultation with an experienced surgeon is the best way to determine if a patient is a good match for highly cohesive breast implants."
