Texture silicone implants

31st Oct 2018

Gummy bear implants have a textured surface. In other words, the outer part of the implant shell is textured. From among all the gummy bear implants, the 410 features the more aggressively textured surface. The company that manufactures the gummy bear implants calls the textures Biocell.
The gummy bear implant’s texture has a three-dimensional arrangement. The textures are made by pushing unique salt crystals on the exterior of the implant shell.
So, what are the benefits of textured gummy bear implant?
First off, the textured surface helps decrease the risk of capsular contracture that is associated with smooth-surfaced breast implants. Capsular contracture occurs when the post-operative scar around the breast implants contracts, squeezing the breasts and creating physical pain. The textured surface decreases the development of severe scarring in and around the breasts.
The textured gummy bear implants are particularly beneficial if you are considering to have the implants placed over the breast muscle. In this case, there is a higher risk of capsular contracture because there is lesser tissue coverage. The use of textured gummy bear implants would prevent the possible contracture.
Second, the textured surface creates friction, and over time, tissues grow within the texture. This helps decrease the risk of breast implant rotation. The textured surface promotes compliance of the surrounding tissue to the implant’s surface. This helps stabilize the position of the implant and decreases the risk of undesirable and potential implant shifting with the passage of time.
In terms of aesthetics, the textured surface of the gummy bear implant provides enhanced and more natural results as compared to standard saline and silicone breast implants. The textures help prevent implant movements like lateral drift and bottoming out.
Because the gummy bears are anatomical in shape, it is important for them to have texture. This way, the implant has a lower risk of displacement.
