Breast Implants: Q&AAsk a Question
Is my Doctor Referring to Gummy Bear Silicone Implants?
During my first consultation, I told the doctor I want silicone breast implants because I am very small-framed and have little existing tissue. The doctor went into explaining the difference between silicone and saline implants, and the risks and safety variables with each one. He said that silicone implants, if cut, would remain in place and not leak if there were a rupture of some sort, and it would take a 20-foot fall or higher from a building and landing on my chest for anything to leak/squirt out. Is he referring to the "gummy bear implant?" Is this what he plans to use, based on his statement?
