IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implants

Dr. Park is proud to be part of an exclusive network of plastic surgeons to offer their cosmetic surgery patients the new IDEAL IMPLANT. The IDEAL IMPLANT has a unique structured design that is changing the way women feel about their breast implants; they no longer have to choose between the peace of mind of saline and the beauty of silicone gel. While the IDEAL IMPLANT provides a natural feel similar to that of silicone gel breast implants, it comes with none of the associated health concerns such as “silent rupture.” The IDEAL IMPLANT is filled with saline, or sterile saltwater solution. It has advanced, structured technology inside that gives breasts a natural look, feel, and movement.

Why Breast Implants Cost Less With IDEAL IMPLANT

The cost of different types of breast implants varies. But when you are planning for your breast augmentation, it is important to know that there is the potential for expenses beyond just the breast implants’ cost up front. Breast implants can rupture or leak. If this happens with a silicone gel implant, it is known as silent rupture because the silicone gel inside the implant may leak into the body tissues with no visible signs. The FDA has recommended that women with silicone gel breast implants have an MRI after the first 3 years, then every other year to watch for silent rupture. These regular screenings may not be covered by insurance, and over time, can add up to an expensive responsibility on top of your initial surgery.

Data from FDA Core clinical trials over an 8 year period for women with primary breast augmentation supports that IDEAL IMPLANT patients may enjoy greater peace of mind. The research revealed that the risks for breast implant complications such as rupture/deflation, and capsular contracture are all lower with IDEAL IMPLANT than they are for silicone gel implants. Breast augmentation revision surgeries are expensive, but with IDEAL IMPLANT, you are much less likely to need them. 

It’s hard to put a price on peace of mind, but women know the value it holds. Knowing that you will never experience silent rupture with IDEAL IMPLANT gives you the freedom to enjoy them without the stress. If an IDEAL IMPLANT ruptures, you will know immediately just by looking in a mirror and the saline solution is harmlessly absorbed into your body. When a silicone gel implant ruptures, the silicone gel inside sticks to the body tissues and requires a complicated surgery to clean up the mess of silicone gel and replace the implant.  When you compare the long-term cost of different types of breast implants, the IDEAL IMPLANT offers the most value by far.

Choosing IDEAL IMPLANT Over Unstructured Saline

The differences between the IDEAL IMPLANT and silicone gel breast implants is clear, but what sets them apart from traditional unstructured saline implants? Unstructured saline breast implants have been on the market for decades and are basically like a water balloon because they are filled with saline solution and lack any kind of internal structure.  

The drawbacks of unstructured saline implants are aesthetic in nature. They move and feel more like a water balloon than a natural breast. Wrinkles and rippling are common problems associated with them as well, especially for women who are thin or have little existing breast tissue of their own. If you are having cosmetic surgery, one main goal is to gain confidence and satisfaction in the way you look, but unstructured saline breast implants don’t always help patients achieve the results they want. The IDEAL IMPLANT is not susceptible to these types of problems because of its design with an internal structure. Women can now enjoy the natural look and feel of their enhanced breasts without silicone gel or its associated concerns.
