What are "gummy bear" breast implants?

The kitschy-but-catchy named new generation of silicone-gel filled breast implants have the consistency of, well, gummy bears. This means that if they rupture, the gel won't migrate – a potential safety advantage. Gummy bear breast implants are also sometimes called form-stable or highly cohesive breast implants. The FDA has approved three to date: Allergan's Natrelle 410, the Sientra line of breast implants and Mentor's MemoryShape (formerly known as CPG).
