Until recently, women undergoing breast augmentation have had to choose between the safety of saline implants or the more natural texture of silicone gel implants. The best of both worlds wasn’t available. Ideal Implants change that.
Ideal Implants are structured breast implants that combine the most unique properties of both saline and silicone implants to provide a natural feel and optimal safety. Aesthetics in Plastic Surgery proudly offers Ideal Implants in addition to traditional saline and silicone gel implants, giving you a wide variety of options to choose from in making an informed personal decision about your best implants.
Saline implants are traditional breast implants filled with sterile saline water. They’re filled with water after insertion, and they’re suitable for all adults over 18 years of age. Saline implants are extremely safe—if they get ruptured, the implant will deflate, and the saline solution will get absorbed by your body without health risks. While saline implants are safe, they don’t look or feel exactly like natural breast tissues. Furthermore, in the unlikely event your implants were to rupture, the shape and size of the breast will change; it may appear deflated or develop wrinkles.
Silicone implants are form-stable implants with pre-filled silicone gel. They’re the most popular type of breast implant because the thick and sticky fluid used closely approximates human fat tissue, making it the most natural-looking type of breast implant. If a silicone implant ruptures, the silicone gel might slowly leak into surrounding breast tissue, leading to breast pain and contour changes. Most patients won’t immediately realize a ruptured has occurred, necessitating regular MRIs to ensure nothing is leaking.
Ideal Implants are structured implants that combine the unique benefits of both implant types. They contain two chambers housing sterile saline and no silicone gel, so there are no health risks. Furthermore, the surrounding shells are designed to prevent implant ruptures, so there’s little risk of the saline leaking out. Besides safety, the implant shell is made of materials that closely resemble the appearance and sensation of actual breast tissue. As such, Ideal Implants look and feel just like natural breast tissues while being extremely safe.
