Is Cohesive or Gummy Bear the Same?
This is a great question. The term Gummy Bear was invented when the silicone implants became cohesive gel implants. Then they developed a more Highly Cohesive gel implant that was anatomically shaped, or tear-drop shaped. The gummy bear term has been used by multiple companies but generally I think people consider it in reference to the more highly cohesive shaped implants. Remember, however, that the smooth round silicone implants are also a cohesive silicone gel too.
Diferences: the more highly cohesive are shaped, textured. Theres some risk of improper positioning, they also tend to be more firm which some patients dislike. Depending on the patient a shaped implant might be a better choice, while most others can get equally good results with smooth round implants. Try to get a feel of both types. Both can provide excellent results. Best wishes!
