Advantages of the IDEAL Implant over Saline and Silicone Implants

Share Button

Till recently, women considering breast implant surgery could choose from FDA-approved saline, silicone and gummy bear implants. In November 2014, the FDA approved a new option – the IDEAL implant which blends the best aspects of its counterparts. In fact, this new saline-filled implant is specifically designed to overcome women’s basic concerns with saline and silicone gel breast implants. Let’s see how.

Original Saline

Original Saline

The original saline implant resembles a water balloon and is usually placed under the chest muscle. Many women complain that it does not provide the natural feel of breast tissue. The lack of internal structure is a major drawback. When held upright, the upper portion collapses and tends to wrinkle.

Silicone Gel

Silicone Gel

Silicone gel-filled implants do feel somewhat like breast tissue. However, the filling is not done at the time of surgery but during manufacturing process. So there are chances of it getting damaged if forced through a small incision. Moreover, while silicone gel implants were considered safe and approved by the FDA, MRI scans are necessary every two years to detect silent rupture. If they do rupture they have to be removed.

IDEAL Implant – What Makes the Difference

IDEAL Implant
  • With the IDEAL implant, women do not need an MRI to detect rupture as if this new structured implants happens to rupture, it is obvious, and the saline is harmlessly absorbed by the body. This innovative breast implant also offers a natural look and feel along with the safety of only saline inside. Its design makes the difference. It features a series of implant shells nested together and two separate chambers which hold the saline filler. The chances of folding, wrinkling and bouncing are minimal as the internal structure controls movement of the saline. The results are also more appealing as the edges have been lowered for better fit to the chest wall.
  • The IDEAL IMPLANT is round and so rotation does not affect its appearance. This is not the case with tear-drop shaped implants that would look abnormal if they rotate.
  • The IDEAL IMPLANT needs a relatively small incision to insert. It is filled with saline through its two self-sealing valves after insertion. It is also designed to provide more choices of subglandular or submuscular position, volume adjustment and incision location.
  • This implant is available in 14 different varieties of sizes so that women can choose the option that best suits their overall physical proportions. The healing period is more or less the same as that for other implants.

The IDEAL implant is for women who want an implant with a natural feel without silicone gel in their body. It is for women who would be concerned about undetected silent ruptures inside their body and the hassles of having to undergo MRI scans every two years to detect ruptures.
