What are breast implants with cohesive gel?

Today, patients who are interested in undergoing breast augmentation procedures are presented with many options when it comes to choosing breast implants. Among the first and the most popular breast implants that surgeons use is the silicone implant.

Silicone implants can be described in many terms. Sometimes they are called cohesive implants, bear implants, gummy bear implants, gel implants and others. Most of the time, it confuses the patient. Let me explain.

When we say cohesive, it means how much a product sticks together. All silicone implants available on the market today have cohesive gel that varies only when it comes to the degree. That gives them a different level of cohesiveness. A few decades ago, silicone implants are not as firm as they are today because they were made more of liquid. With the introduction of MemoryGel implant to the market, the patients benefit more from implants with a higher level of cohesiveness than the previous generation.

It’s safe to say that all silicone implant can be called as a cohesive implant. The only question is how well the silicone sticks together. Surgeons know that the cohesiveness is an important factor because it determines how likely the implant will stay in place in case it ruptures.

As the years go by, more and more companies are introducing implants with higher cohesiveness quality such as the gummy bear implants. The gummy bear implant is essentially a silicone implant with more crosslink, allowing the implant to have the consistency of a gummy bear candy.

If you squeeze it or even remove the shell of the implant, you will notice that it becomes even more cohesive. The more the silicone sticks together, the more possibility that it will maintain its form for a long time.

Results from patients also show that the more cohesive the implants are, the lesser the complications with regard to rippling, rupture, and capsule contracture.
