Polyurethane Coated Implants vs Gummy Bear Breast Implants

Your Silimed polyurethane implants are not the same as gummy bear breast implants. While both are a form of silicone implants, your Silimed implants have an outer coating of polyurethane that surrounds the outer shell of the implant. The silicone gel that resides inside it is a softer form than that of the gummy bear implant. The gummy bear style of breast implant has a more polymerized and firmer silicone gel inside with an uncoated silastic containment bag. From the outside they may actually feel somewhat similar in firmness but they are truly different styles of breast implants.
