Since our practice began offering gummy bear implants, the response we’ve seen from patients has been positive across the board.

Each year, the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery meets to promote continuing education among plastic surgeons and to discuss the latest advancements in cosmetic medicine. A highly publicized annual event, this year’s Aesthetic Society Meeting featured NYC plastic surgeon, Dr. Michael Fiorillo. Dr. Fiorillo spoke on the emerging role of gummy bear breast implants at the conference’s Sientra Forum.

“It was such an honor to present on gummy bear breast implants at this year’s meeting of the ASAPS,” said Dr. Fiorillo. “The industry is seeing a huge shift toward cohesive silicone gel, and I truly believe that gummy bear implants are a game changer for doctors and patients alike.” As one of today’s most sought-after plastic surgeons, Dr. Fiorillo frequently lends his expertise to the national media, including Fox News, Good Morning America, The View, and MSG.

Asked to speak on important benefits of this cutting-edge implant type, Dr. Fiorillo offered this: “Cohesive silicone gel implants are nicknamed ‘gummy bears’ for their consistency and their ability to hold their shape, even when cut. These characteristics present huge benefits to the patient, achieving a consistent, natural-looking result and making them a generally safer implant option.” Widely available in Europe for well over a decade, gummy bear implants are now approved by the FDA.

During the lecture – which can be viewed online at – Dr. Fiorillo also gave a sense of the results his gummy bear breast augmentation patients have achieved. “Since our practice began offering gummy bear implants, the response we’ve seen from patients has been positive across the board. A fully customizable approach, patients love that we can tailor their procedure to their unique cosmetic goals – from a more anatomical, natural look to a traditional, high-profile result.”

Asked to speak on the future of gummy bear breast implants, Dr. Fiorillo concluded with this: “As a plastic surgeon, I have always been driven by three key principles: safety, honesty and patient satisfaction. Gummy bear implants have become an important part of achieving those goals, offering an important new option for today’s breast augmentation patients.”
