Gel breast implants are one of the options available for breast augmentation. The term “gummy bear” is actually a nickname for these teardrop-shaped, gel-based implants. They’re known to retain their shape better than other types of breast implants made from saline and silicone.
All breast implants have a shell made out of an inert polymer called silicone, which is an inert (non-reactive) substance. Breast implant shell surfaces can be smooth or textured. Smooth walled implants roll around subtly in their breast pocket, mimicking movement of a natural breast, while textured implants encourage soft tissue ingrowth into their small surface interstices, keeping the implant more stiffly in place.
Implants filled with saline water are introduced empty and refilled inside the body. The physical shocks and the minimal pressure at high altitudes help the loss of saline water inside the body over time, perhaps you can think that an implant has ruptured, the true it is simply empty.
