A recent patient of Newport Beach plastic surgeon Jay Calvert, M.D. recently shared her experience with the Ideal Implant in an effort to help more women make an informed choice about their breast augmentation options.
“I had the Ideal Implant inserted as a part of the clinical trial. I was afraid of silicone and wanted to try an alternative to the saline implants currently on the market.
“I had several girlfriends with both saline and silicone implants. I can tell you whole-heartedly that mine look and feel better than my two girlfriends that had saline implants.
“Do they look and feel exactly the same as silicone? No, but they sure are close. Do they look and feel much better than saline implants previously on the market? Absolutely. Do I feel they are safer than silicone? Definitely. Am I happy with my decision? 100%.
“They look great, feel great, look natural and don’t bounce around like water balloons. They were done so well that people oftentimes do not believe I got them enhanced and think I am naturally busty. I could not be more thrilled.”

When you are considering breast augmentation, you have some important choices to make about which procedure is right for you, what type of implant to use, and who you will trust as your surgeon. There are several reasons women consider implants. Some women choose to improve the sagginess of their breasts with a breast lift. Other women want to add volume to their breasts with implants. Many times, women are looking for both benefits.
When choosing breast implants, cost, implant material, and surgical procedure all play a part in making the plastic surgery decision that is best for you. Women getting breast implants want to know how natural their new implants will feel, how safe the implants are, and what the procedure requires.
Silicone Gel-Filled Implants
It is important that if you choose silicone gel filled implants that you are aware that the FDA advises that you have follow-up MRI scans every two years to check for ruptures. It’s also important to realize that these implants are not intended to be permanent, but are designed to require replacement if they rupture.
Pros of Silicone Gel-Filled Implants:
- Look and feel more natural than saline implants
- Can be safely placed in any implant position
- Low occurrence of rippling or wrinkling
Cons of Silicone Gel-Filled Implants:
- Implants are pre-filled before surgery and require larger incisions for insertion
- Size of implants cannot be adjusted during surgery
- Risk of silent rupture
- Cost and concern with the need for regular MRIs
The IDEAL IMPLANT Choice
Traditionally, women have had only two implant choices, silicone gel or saline. Now they have the IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implant, which combines the benefits of both without the drawbacks. How does this revolutionary breast implant compare to silicone gel-filled implants? With the IDEAL IMPLANT you can have natural feel and the peace of mind that comes with only saline inside. Like a saline implant, these implants are filled during surgery, which allows for a smaller incision. The structured double chambers with baffle shells control the movement of the saline filler, giving you a natural look and feel.
IDEAL IMPLANT Means:
- No silent rupture concerns
- No need for MRI scans
- Safety of saline filling
- Easy to remove
- Smaller incision

Sometimes knowing where we have come from in the past helps us appreciate where we are today. The history of breast augmentation shows that breast implants have come a long way from their beginnings. A little background gives understanding to how revolutionary the IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implant is for women today.
First Attempts with Augmentations
In 1890, Austrian doctor Dr. Robert Gersuny started the first breast augmentations by injecting his patients with paraffin wax. The results were not so pretty, as his patients experienced infections and lumps in their breasts. Then in 1895, Doctor Vincenz Czerny, also from Austria, experimented with the first implant idea by using a benign tumor from the back of his patient and placing it in the breast where another tumor in the woman had been removed! From this precarious start, through the turn of the century until the 1950’s, surgeons experimented with a variety of breast implant materials. These materials included fat from the patient, glass balls, wool, sponges, ivory, even ox cartilage. Although proven safety was lacking, women still seemed willing to undergo pain, injection needles, and experiments to enlarge their bust size or fix asymmetrical breasts.
Breast Implants Change Everything
A new idea for breast implants came to a young doctor when he went to get a bag of blood from the hospital’s blood bank. Blood that had been stored in glass jars was now being held in plastic bags, and he noticed how it felt similar to the tissue of a woman’s breast. A team of doctors lead by Dr. Thomas Cronin developed the first silicone gel-filled breast implants in 1961, and the design of these implants stayed relatively unchanged over the next 30 years. However, in the 80’s, women became increasingly concerned about the safety of silicone gel-filled implants, so implants filled with saline began to grow in popularity, even though they had a less-natural feel.
The Best of Both Worlds
For decades, women wanting breast implants could choose saline filled implants that often rippled and felt unnatural, or they could choose silicone gel filled implants and worry about the risks of a silent rupture. Faced with this dilemma, a plastic surgeon designed breast implants that gave women the natural feel of silicone gel, yet with the safety of saline. The resulting IDEAL IMPLANT is the next level of technology offering women a structured saline filled implant that feels natural without the worry of silent rupture that occurs with silicone gel implants.
