Shaped Silicone Breast Implants

Advantages

Shaped silicone breast implants are often called “gummy bear implants” because of their slightly firmer feel, a feature that some women like. These implants are shaped with a taper toward the top and a fullness toward the bottom and can sometimes create a very natural shape, particularly in patients who have a small amount of breast drooping or some breasts that are not as attractively shaped.

Disadvantages

Since these breast implants are shaped in a specific fashion, they are also textured to prevent rotation or free movement in the breast pocket which would create an unusual appearance. This texture allows the implant to stay exactly where it is put. Because the textured shaped breast implant is somewhat restricted in its movement, it can be more difficult to create cleavage by “pushing up” breasts with these implants. When patients lie down, these breast implants tend to stay toward the front of the chest, rather than lying more naturally as real breasts do.

To see if the shaped silicone gel breast implant is a good choice for you, make an appointment with Dr. Lowenstein in Santa Barbara to discuss the broad selection of breast implant options that he has available for your breast enhancement. Dr. Lowenstein commonly cares for patients from Ventura, Bakersfield, and Santa Maria, as well as women who come from across the country and across the world.
