NYC Surgeon Releases Infographic on Gummy Bear Breast Implants

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Nov 7, 2014) - Dr. Douglas S. Steinbrech, M.D., F.A.C.S., recently released an infographic on Gummy Bear breast implants breaking down the commonly sought out facts and why they are the latest technological development in breast augmentation. Referred to as Gummy Bear implants, because of the silicone gel's consistency which resembles the look and feel of the sugary, well-loved candy.

Although they were introduced to Europe in 1995, and Canada following suit in 2000, it took the United States until 2013 to get FDA approval. Now top plastic surgeons, such as Dr. Steinbrech are educators and advocates behind this material and procedure. Many other breast implants of the past have been accurately characterized by their unnatural appearance, stiff feel and high risk of leakage among other possible complications.

There are a number of advantages to Gummy Bear implants in comparison to other saline and silicone options and techniques. From an aesthetic standpoint, they are much softer and natural feeling; they have less scar tissue following the implant procedure, less folding or rippling and maintain their shape longer (15 to 20 years). They are also significantly safer than other options posing a lower risk of complications and no risk of leakage if cut, torn or broken.

Gummy Bear breast implants are recommended only to women 22 years of age or older and the procedure costs an average of $6,500.00. Patients generally resume regular activity within a week of the procedure.

Through this infographic, Dr. Steinbrech offers his expertise as he recommends this procedure for women seeking the most natural, longest lasting and lowest risk results when considering a breast augmentation.
