Some Pros and Cons of Cohesive Silicone Gel Breast Implants
The surgeons who comprise the medical group, We Know Beauty, believe that education and preparedness for a plastic or reconstructive procedure are incredibly vital. Part of this is informing a future patient on their full range of options, so that he or she can make the most educated decision about his or her body before having an operation. Similarly, the team here at We Know Beauty likes to give patients realistic expectations for their procedures so that they aren't disappointed with their results.
As such, We Know Beauty wants to share a few of the pros and cons of gummy bear breast implants so that anyone who is considering a breast enlargement can fully consider this form of implant. This type of breast implant, also known as a cohesive gel implant, is comprised of a dense silicone gel. Because of the consistency of this gel, it maintains its shape much better than other implants. Many also believe that a gummy bear breast implant feels much closer to the feel of breast tissue. The cohesive gel breast implant, according to plenty of sources, causes capsular contracture at a much less often than other forms of implant. This decreases the chance of needing a future breast augmentation revision. One of the cons of the silicone gel breast implant is that it does generally cost more than other implants. We Know Beauty does help patients finance their operations if that is a potential issue.
These ideas are just a few of the advantages and disadvantages of the cohesive gel breast implant. The whole picture can be best seen through one of We Know Beauty's complimentary consultations.
