Now available in our office, the IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implant, a new third type of implant that is filled with saline, but has an internal structure to make it behave as if filled with silicone gel. The IDEAL IMPLANT contains a series of nested shells that provide support to the edges and control fluid movement to prevent bouncing. The result is an implant that combines certain key features and benefits of both saline and silicone gel implants. Like the saline implant, the filler is only saline, which women like for peace of mind in case of a rupture/deflation. Like the silicone gel implant, it has a natural feel, but without the risk of silent rupture and FDA-recommended MRI scans – women can simply look in the mirror and know their implants are intact. In addition, clinical trial results at 8 years show the IDEAL IMPLANT has a lower rate of capsule contracture and a lower rate of rupture than silicone gel or saline implants for primary augmentation.
STRUCTURED vs. SALINE IMPLANTS
Saline is a safe, natural solution easily absorbed by the body in case of rupture.
But many women feel they have to compromise on the look and feel of the implant, which wrinkles and moves like a water balloon. IDEAL IMPLANT combines the peace of mind of only saline inside with an advanced, structured technology that gives women
the beautiful look, natural feel and realistic movement they are looking for.
STRUCTURED vs. SILICONE GEL IMPLANTS
When intact, silicone gel implants are FDA-approved and safe. But when they rupture, the FDA states the “implant and any gel should be removed.” Yet silicone gel ruptures are silent, meaning they can only be detected by an MRI, so the FDA recommends that women have an MRI scan every other year to find out if their implants have ruptured. IDEAL IMPLANT offers a natural feel without these concerns.
You shouldn’t have to choose between natural feel and peace of mind. With the IDEAL IMPLANT, you will always know your implants are intact simply by looking in the mirror.
