New Breast Implant

Posted: Updated:

Professional body-builder Kenyatta Jones-Arietta works hard to look like this. In order to look her best in competition, she's going under the knife for a third breast implant surgery.

"When I lean down, you can tell these are implants. Want a more natural finish."

The 40-year-old mother of three says this time she's trying the new FDA approved breast implants. Doctors say the new cutting edge implants give women a better option.

"Less chance of breast implant rupture, less chance of rippling, which you can see with saline and sometimes silicone," says Dr. Michael Fiorillo.

Dr. Fiorillo says the so called "gummy bear" silicone implants look and feel more natural and are likely to maintain their shape overtime.

"It was coined the term gummy bear because it has the consistency of a gummy bear."

Breast augmentation is the number one cosmetic procedure women have in the United States. 300,000 operations each year.

The surgery costs between $7-$12,000. The risks are minimal and include bleeding and infection.

Jones-Arietta believes the new implants will give her the results she's been looking for.

"I'm hoping for a more natural look and feel."

So she build more confidence when she competes.

This type of breast implant has been around for about five years, but the FDA just approved the implants in the United States in March.
