It’s no secret that breast augmentation is the most popular of all plastic surgery procedures, and has been for many years. Many women are tired of feeling unhappy with the appearance of their breasts, and want to take advantage of the benefits of breast implants. Before you have a breast augmentation, researching the procedure can help you understand your options and what to expect throughout the process. If you find yourself typing “how much are breast implants in Orange County” in your favorite search engine, it’s time to consider your options for different implants. Before you decide which breast implant you want based on cost, it is important to do your research on each type so you know exactly what you are buying.

Silicone Gel and Saline Implants

Most women wondering “How much are breast implants in Newport Beach?” have a basic idea about the differences between silicone gel and saline breast implants. Since their return to the market in 2006 after an FDA-imposed moratorium, silicone gel implants have been a popular choice for women because of their realistic look and feel. Saline implants have been around a long time and some women choose them because there are no questions about the safety of saline. But each of these types of implants comes with its own disadvantages: women worry about what happens if and when their silicone gel implants rupture, and saline implants often just don’t provide the natural look they want.

IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implants Offer Beauty Without Compromise

IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implants are the option for women who want the benefits of both saline and silicone gel without the drawbacks of either. The IDEAL IMPLANT is filled with saline, which is a sterile solution of salt and water that is harmless to the body. What sets the IDEAL IMPLANT apart from unstructured saline implants is its inner design. Its structure consists of nested shells and chambers that give it a youthful shape. When held upright, the upper part of a saline implant will collapse with visible folding and wrinkling. A structured implant like the IDEAL IMPLANT does not have those problems because it holds its shape. If you are worried about how much breast implants in Orange County are going to ripple, the IDEAL IMPLANT can put those concerns to rest.

IDEAL IMPLANT Has the Benefits of Silicone Gel With Zero Risk of Silent Rupture

With its beautifully natural look and feel, the IDEAL IMPLANT compares to silicone gel implants in terms of aesthetics. But since it has only saline inside, the IDEAL IMPLANT comes with none of the risks associated with silicone gel, such as silent rupture. The only way to know whether a silicone gel implant has ruptured is to have an MRI, and not even then can you tell with 100% certainty.

Based on FDA core clinical trials, for primary augmentations, typical silicone gel implants have rates of rupture that range from 7.2% to 13.6% at 8 years. With IDEAL IMPLANT, for primary augmentations, the rate of rupture is a low 2.1%. The IDEAL IMPLANT was designed in a way that allows only a portion of the implant to deflate in case of rupture, which can be easily noticed with a glance in the mirror. If you do see that your IDEAL IMPLANT has partially deflated, there is no cause for alarm. The saline will be safely absorbed by your body and the implant can be replaced with a simple procedure.

The FDA recognizes the risks of silent rupture in patients with silicone gel breast implants. Their website states:

“Silicone gel that leaks outside the capsule surrounding the implant may travel (migrate) away from the breast. The leaked silicone gel may cause lumps to form in the breast or in other tissue, most often the chest wall, armpit or arm. It may be difficult or impossible to remove silicone gel that has traveled to other parts of the body.”

How Much are Breast Implants in Orange County Going to Cost You?

When you look up “How much are breast implants in Orange County?” you will get a few different price tags, but you might not see results that inform you about the health costs associated with some of those implants. The costs that will affect your health are more important in the long run than the one-time price you pay for the procedure. With IDEAL IMPLANT, the risk for complications such as capsular contracture are considerably lower than with silicone gel implants. FDA core clinical trial results revealed that the IDEAL IMPLANT’s risk of capsular contracture in primary augmentation is 6.6%, while silicone gel implant rates vary from 10.9% to 16.2% at 8 years.

When capsular contracture occurs, the breast can become hardened around the implant causing pain and an abnormal appearance. Additional surgery can be required, depending on the severity of the case. The patient must decide whether to completely remove, or replace her implants. With zero risk for silent rupture and lower risks of capsular contracture and rupture, the IDEAL IMPLANT is the option for women who don’t want to worry about how much breast implants in Orange County are going to cost in terms of their health and peace of mind.
