Are you interested in breast augmentation but afraid of looking too “fake?” Have you lost your pre-pregnancy breast size since breast feeding, child rearing, and weight fluctuations? Do you wish your breast profile could look full, yet natural? If you answer yes to any of these questions, a new product available may peak your interest.

A Better Implant Option

Have you heard of the Natrelle Style 410? The Natrelle Style 410, also known as the “gummy bear” or “teardrop shaped” implant, has been the number-one selling implant in Europe and South America for the last decade. In February 2013, the FDA approved this same breast implant for use in the United States.

Advantages of Gummy Bear Implants

  • The gummy bear breast implant is filled with a highly cross-linked silicone gel which allows it to hold its shape significantly more than round silicone gel breast implants.
  • The gummy bear breast implant boasts an anatomical shape, featuring a soft slope and beautiful lower pole projection, providing women with a natural look, without looking too augmented, round, or “fake.”
  • These new gummy bear breast implants maintain the upper pole much more readily than others due to the highly cohesive nature of the silicone gel.
  • Unlike older breast implants, which did not maintain their shape (particularly in the upper pole), these new gummy bear breast implants maintain projection and upper pole fullness without appearing too round.

Who Should Consider the Gummy Bear Implant?

By Procedure

Gummy bear implants are anatomically shaped and can be used in patients who are having primary breast augmentation, in conjunction with a mastopexy, or for breast reconstruction following mastectomy.

By Desired Result

Gummy bear implants also provide a more natural aesthetic result and are extremely desirable for women who are seeking fullness and increased volume in the upper portion of the breast.

By Lifestyle

These implants are perfect for athletic women wishing to maintain their fit look as well as women who have lost their upper pole volume due to breast feeding, weight loss, or hormonal fluctuations.

Health & Safety

The Natrelle Style 410 “gummy bear” implants are safe and have no additional complications associated with them compared to other types of round silicone breast implants. Silicone breast implants do not increase the risk for breast cancer and breast cancer screening is not influenced by breast implants. Silicone breast implants are followed with serial MRI as recommended by the FDA, which looks for any sign of leakage or rupture. If leakage or rupture occurs, the implants have a lifetime warranty, and replacement is done through a simple, outpatient procedure.
