While the FDA’s desicion to maintain the ban on silicone gel breast implants, doctors are coming up with new, potentially better alternatives for those seeking bustier profiles. Their newest development are “gummies”- breast implants with the consistencies of gummy bears. They have all the positive attributes of the silicone gel implants, but lack the problem of gel migration that has proved such a hazard for some unfortunate silicone implant recipients. The new kind of implant shell coating may be less likely to cause inflammation and scarring. Most importantly, if that shell should wear off the gel will not go into the breast; it will simply float in place. The implant has also been said to feel like a natural breast as opposed to the water balloon feel that so many other implants are notorious for.
The only potential downside of the gummies is that they may prove too dense for the tastes of some women, but as a whole they seem to be a beacon of hope for those crest-(or should I say, chest)-fallen from the FDA ban.
