Besides the term "cohesive", you may have heard of "gummy bear," "form-stable", or "highly cohesive" breast implants. Each is a different way of describing an implant that retains its shape. So even though "gummy bear" is not a medical term, our implants are often described this way.
It's important to note that Sientra OPUS® breast implants are different from all others — inside and out. During independent laboratory testing, our gel implants were found to be strong, yet they remain remarkably soft to the touch. Our High-Strength Cohesive Silicone Gels are a first in breast implant technology, and are exclusive to Sientra.
"These remarkable breast implants are made of a High-Strength Cohesive Gel that looks and feels like natural breast tissue."
