What are Cohesive Gel Breast Implants?

Cohesive Gel Breast Implants, also known as ‘gummy bear implants’, are a modern implant that gives a superior natural finish when compared to traditional round-breast implants.

The strong, cohesive silicone gel used is more stable than traditional silicone implants and creates a ‘tear-drop’ appearance, when standing,  which mimics the natural shape and feel of breasts.

The gummy bear implants are an ideal option for those looking to create larger and perkier breasts with a natural finish or improve symmetry.

Who is a Cohesive Gel Breast Implants Candidate?

There is no specific trait that defines a “good” cohesive gel breast implant candidate, just a shared desire to improve the appearance of their breast.

Ideal candidates should be in good physical and mental health, have no historical problems with general anesthesia and not suffer from any breast disease. As with any cosmetic procedure, patients should have reasonable expectations on the outcome.

Non-Surgical Cohesive Gel Breast Implants Alternatives

Some breast augment patients opt for a fat grafting to the breast for their augmentation. Although Fat grafting does not give the ability for large volume enhancements you do get to combine the liposuction harvesting and donor site contour improvements.

How is a Cohesive Gel Breast Implants Performed by Dr. Mulholland?

The procedure begins with Dr. Mulholland meeting with you again and confirming the implant size, goals and marking the incision with you. The anesthesiologist administers the  general anesthesia.

Cohesive silicone gel implants are generally placed through and under the breast (inframammary), as they are moderate-to-large in size and will not fit through an armpit, areola or belly button incision. However, cohesive gel implants under 290g are small enough that a stealth endoscopic trans-axillary (armpit) approach is possible.

Once the incision is made the pocket is created before the implants are carefully inserted. The three different implant placement options will be discussed with you during your initial consultation: subglandular (under the breast gland but on top of the muscle), sub-pectoral (completely under the pectoralis muscle), and dual plane, (under the gland in the lower breast pole and under the pectoralis muscle in the upper pole).

The incisions are then expertly closed to minimize any scarring.

How to Prepare for a Cohesive Gel Breast Implants

Two weeks before the breast augmentation surgery, patients should stop drinking alcohol, stop smoking and stop taking aspirin/ibuprofen. These temporary lifestyle adjustments are advised to ensure the recovery period is as short as possible.

Preparing your home space for your recovery period by stocking up on food, arranging loose-fitting clothes and organizing any support you need from friends and family are other ways you can improve the recovery period.

The day before your surgery, wash your body and hair with antibacterial soap, take any medication prescribed to you, and don’t eat or drink for eight hours prior.
