What is a gummi bear?

If you’re a candy lover, this question is just silly.  If you’re one of my children, you’d start pulling up Youtube and start playing a highly repetitive, mind-numbing trance song embraced the world over (in 17 languages!).  But if your mind is turned towards plastic surgery, you just might be thinking about this:

That’s right.  The new highly cohesive silicone gel implants.  These are being touted as the next generation, the latest and greatest thing in implants.  Silicone implants have been through several revisions since their inception in 1961 by Cronin, Gerow, and Dow Corning.  They were not the first to try to enhance breast volume, and many others have tried other methods (not implants) to bring women larger cup sizes since then.

So what’s all the hubbub about?  If you look at them, first you’ll see they are tear-drop shaped, following the natural contour of the breast.  They hold their shape better than standard implants because of the “stickiness” of the silicone used.  Not all silicone is the same.  Because of their shape, they are also textured, to help them stay in proper position.

Depending on what look/shape/feel you are interested, a plastic surgeon can choose an implant from a wide variety.  Here are a few types we have available here:

So, after all that, you know you want to listen to the song.  Go ahead.  Nobody’s watching…
