The Choice is Yours

Patient education is a priority to Dr. Ferguson. Many women come in knowing the size, shape, or proportions they hope to change with breast implants, but are unsure what kind of implant can get them there. Unstructured saline, silicone gel, gummy bear breast implants, or the new IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implants? There are many differences between each type of breast implant, which makes it absolutely crucial to be informed and educated about the available options. Dr. Ferguson takes the time to explain your choices, answer your questions, and listen to your concerns. As an IDEAL IMPLANT Preferred Surgeon, Dr. Ferguson is part of an exclusive group of board-certified plastic surgeons devoted to offering the very latest in implant technology. He uses up-to-date procedures and products to ensure you have the best experience possible.

Saline, IDEAL IMPLANTS, or Gummy Bear Breast Implants?

So why does Dr. Ferguson offer these next-generation implants? What exactly makes IDEAL IMPLANTS unique compared to unstructured saline, silicone gel, or gummy bear breast implants? As stated on the IDEAL IMPLANT website: “The IDEAL IMPLANT has a natural feel without risk of silent rupture, a youthful shape and contour, and many advantages women value over round silicone gel implants. You will always know your implants are intact simply by looking in the mirror, because you shouldn’t have to choose between natural feel and peace of mind.”

The advanced internal structure of IDEAL IMPLANTS is unlike any other type of breast implant. Unstructured saline implants are filled with a sterile, saltwater solution that moves around uncontrolled, similar to a water balloon. While this is a drawback, many women find security in that if a saline implant ruptures, the body can harmlessly absorb the solution.

Silicone gel implants are filled with a sticky, gel substance. In the event of a rupture, the leaked gel becomes trapped in a woman’s surrounding tissues and must be surgically cleaned out. A silicone gel implant rupture can go undetected for years, known as a “silent rupture”, which is why regular MRI scans are recommended by FDA for all women with silicone gel implants.

IDEAL IMPLANTS, referred to as structured implants, are made up of a series of implant shells that hold two separate chambers filled with saline. No silicone gel, and no chance of “silent rupture”. Furthermore, this innovative design eliminates sloshing, reduces wrinkling, prevents collapse, and provides a realistic look and feel. IDEAL IMPLANTS combine the natural feel of silicone gel without the worry or concern about silent rupture.

“I have always been self-conscious about my breast size even before kids but after 5 kids they became even smaller, barely able to fill out a B cup. I was so nervous going into this but put at ease when entering Doctor Ferguson’s office. They made everything for me so much more comfortable, I had never been through any type of surgery or even put to sleep before in my life and I am so happy with my outcome and feel so much better on every aspect, inside and out. Going from a size A/B to a full D . . . My experience has been amazing:)” RealSelf review by cgasser7899
