Featured on Action 7 News on WXYZ Detroit

Dr. Pramit Malhotra with Ann Arbor Plastic Surgery recently spoke to Action 7 News on WXYZ Detroit to provide prospective patients information on the highly cohesive, form-stable gel implants that offer a more realistic look: Gummy Bear Breast Implants.

The most sought after plastic surgery available to women in the United States – breast augmentation – provides patients a new implant option called Gummy Bear breast implants. First time breast augmentation patients may opt for Gummy Bear Breast Implants, named after the candy bears that are semi-soft yet retain their shape, as an improved option over the look of traditional silicone or saline options, while return patients seeking improved aesthetics may undergo a secondary breast augmentation with the newer implant option.

Dr. Malhotra was among the first plastic surgeons in Michigan to offer Gummy Bear breast implants to his patients following their FDA-approval in 2012. The doctor explains that nearly half his breast augmentation patients opt for this teardrop-shaped implant type. Gummy Bear implants offer greater lifting capabilities than silicone or saline implants, providing a slightly elevated placement. While silicone breast implants contain a sticky, gelatinous form of silicone, and saline implants are filled with a biocompatible saltwater liquid, Gummy Bear implants are unique in their composition. The implants contain a textured shell that helps the implant to remain in place, and an interior of a semi-solid gel material. Because of their form, rippling and rupture are less common with Gummy Bear Implants. The Ann Arbor doctor is excited to reach a broader audience through this news segment, which has been broadcast throughout the metro Detroit, Michigan area. Dr. Malhotra provides benefits and possible side effects of the implants, providing a balanced approach to possible consumers. Watch the clip of the segment here.

Double board-certified in otolaryngology (head and neck surgery) and plastic surgery, Dr. Pramit Malhotra is among a select group of plastic surgeons that have earned these two important certifications for the practice. The doctor spent over a decade becoming educated and training with surgeons from all over the world, and has put this knowledge to good use having performed over 6,000 surgeries. The doctor is an expert in facial anatomy, and remains current on developments in the fields of facial and body plastic surgeries.

Dr. Malhotra is the director of Ann Arbor Plastic Surgery, which operates in Ann Arbor, Jackson, Detroit, and other areas in Michigan. The practice is aimed at addressing both the function and form of various areas of the face and body to produce natural results that benefit patients. The focus of Ann Arbor Plastic Surgery is to create customized results for each individual that maintain over time.
