Breast augmentation is one of the most popular procedures performed here at Gawley Plastic Surgery. We offer our patients a wide range of breast implants so they can get their desired size, shape, and comfort. Now we offer the most recent in implant technology, the IDEAL IMPLANT. This new implant structure is one that women and surgeons alike have been waiting for, it acts like the structure of a silicone-gel implant but uses saline solution inside. This makes this implant perfect for breast augmentation because it acts and feels natural as well as using a saline solution. The innovative design of the IDEAL IMPLANT has two separate chambers which help to control the movement of the saline, prevent rupture, and look more natural.
Benefits of IDEAL IMPLANT
The IDEAL IMPLANT has been created over a decade of research and trials. It has been used since 2009 but became FDA approved in the U.S. and Canada in 2014. One of the main benefits of the IDEAL IMPLANT is that you know if the implant becomes ruptured. Just by looking in the mirror you will see a change if the implant ruptures. The other benefits are:
- Natural Feel
- Youthful Shape
- No Silent Rupture
- Lower Rate of Rupture
- Smaller Incision Required
- Smooth Surface
- Safety of Saline Solution
- No MRI’s Needed
- Stronger Implant
IDEAL IMPLANT Compared to Other Implants
There are many advantages of the IDEAL IMPLANT comparing to traditional saline and silicone-gel implants. With the design on the IDEAL IMPLANT, it prevents any rippling or wrinkling of the implant which in turn helps prevent any capsular contractures or ruptures. Also, with traditional forms of implants, the only way to detect a ruptured implant is with an MRI scan, with the IDEAL IMPLANT all you must do is look at your breast to know if the implant is ruptured or not. Another great benefit of this technology is that it is FDA approved for women 18-22 years of age who want augmentation, unlike traditional implants.
IDEAL IMPLANT Incisions
The incisions for the IDEAL IMPLANT are shorter than incisions used for traditional types of implants. This is because of the shell structure, the shell can be rolled up, instead, then once its placed it can be filled with the saline solution. The amount of saline used will depend on your desired results.
IDEAL IMPLANT Candidates
If you want to get a breast augmentation, then it is important to speak with one of our surgeons at Gawley Plastic Surgery about if this surgery is a good option for you. Once you have decided on breast augmentation, speak with your doctor about the IDEAL IMPLANT and if it is the ideal option for you. The IDEAL IMPLANT has the benefit of giving women not only a natural, comfortable result but also the peace of mind of knowing if their implant is intact or not.
