IDEAL IMPLANT: The Latest Technology in Breast Augmentation
In the past, women had two main choices for breast augmentation: silicone gel implants and unstructured saline implants. As of 2014, the FDA and Health Canada approved the IDEAL IMPLANT as a third option. The IDEAL IMPLANT is a structured implant designed to give women a beautiful look while holding the saline filler in place.
“The time is right to consider a more advanced breast implant. Women are health conscious, they’re looking for things that are natural and very healthy. There’s nothing more natural or healthy than saline. That’s what your body is filled with. So, that’s one of the reasons why I think the IDEAL IMPLANT appeals to many people.” – Dr. Larry Nichter
Saline implants of the past were unstructured and tended to ripple and wrinkle under clothing—many women often compared them to water balloons. But the IDEAL IMPLANT is made up of a series of implant shells nested together, which controls the movement of the saline to give women a more natural look. The unique design of the IDEAL IMPLANT also reduces folding and wrinkling, which are thought to be the main cause of implant rupture and deflation. The saline filler is contained in two separate chambers, so your implant won’t completely collapse if there’s a leak. The outside edges of the implant have also been lowered to contour more normally to the chest wall. When you go in for your Newport Beach saline breast implants, you can physically feel and see the difference in the design of the IDEAL IMPLANT compared to your other options.
Safety Concerns Associated with Silicone Gel Implants
According to the FDA, there are some safety issues you should be aware of before getting your saline breast implants in Newport Beach.
“The most frequent complications and adverse outcomes experienced by breast implant patients include capsular contracture, reoperation, and implant removal (with or without replacement). Other frequent complications include implant rupture, wrinkling, asymmetry, scarring, pain, and infection, among others.”
One of the main health concerns specifically associated with silicone gel implants is silent rupture. Because silicone gel implants are filled with a cohesive silicone gel, it’s impossible for women to tell if the implant has ruptured and at what point in time the rupture occurred. The only way to detect a silent rupture is with an MRI scan, which is often unreliable.
“The FDA has guidelines for silicone implants, their guidelines are very specific. They would like you to have an MRI scan at three years, and then every two years to see if you have a rupture because if you have a rupture of silicone gel implant, typically you don’t see any difference with your breasts so you would not know this. Women are very concerned about that fact. They don’t like having it and a survey, done by a third party, shows that over 90% of the women, if it was a silent rupture, they wanted the implant removed.” – Dr. Larry Nichter
The IDEAL IMPLANT Difference: ZERO Risk of Silent Rupture
If you’re considering Newport Beach saline breast implants, you should know that the IDEAL IMPLANT carries zero risks of silent rupture. When a leak or rupture happens in an IDEAL IMPLANT, you can see it when you look in the mirror. The IDEAL IMPLANT will only slightly deflate due to its dual-chamber design, and since the implants are filled with saline, you don’t have to stress about sticky silicone gel leaking into your body.
“If silicone gel implants are ruptured, it’s not simply removing the silicone gel, you usually have to remove the capsule around the gel, the lining around the gel, called a capsulotomy. And that takes extra time, that can take half an hour to an hour per breast to do that.” – Dr. Larry Nichter
No patient wants to go through a primary breast augmentation procedure, and then follow that up with a lengthy, complicated breast revision surgery just a year or two later. Unlike silicone gel implants, the IDEAL IMPLANT is easily replaced if it ruptures. In as little time as half an hour, and sometimes just using a local anesthetic, a plastic surgeon can take the old implant out and replace it with a new one without unnecessary complications, while using smaller incision.
Lower Risk Rate of Common Complications
Another reason to pick the IDEAL IMPLANT Structured saline breast implants in Newport Beach? The IDEAL IMPLANT has a lower rate of both rupture and capsular contracture, for primary augmentation, when compared to silicone gel implants. While silicone gel implants have a rupture risk of anywhere between 5-7%, the IDEAL IMPLANT rupture risk is much lower at 1.8%.
Capsular contracture can occur with any breast implant you choose, where the tissue around the implant becomes hard, swollen, and painful. However, your risk of capsular contracture, for primary augmentation, with IDEAL IMPLANT is only 6.3%, as opposed to silicone gel capsular contracture rates, which can vary from 9-16%. These statistics are reassuring to women considering Newport Beach saline breast implants.
