IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implants offer safety without compromising beauty.
Dr. Michael Zwicklbauer and Newport News Plastic Surgery Before and After Photos
Dr. Michael Zwicklbauer, known as Dr. Z, is part of an exclusive group of plastic surgeons board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery that offer IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implants. The IDEAL IMPLANT is comprised of a series of implant shells that hold two separate chambers filled with saline. This advanced internal structure:
- Helps women achieve the youthful look and realistic feel of silicone gel implants
- Reduces wrinkling and rippling
- Supports the implant edge to prevent collapse
- Controls movement of the saline to eliminate sloshing, known as the “water-hammer” effect
- Allows for adjustable volume based on patient preferences
The Newport News plastic surgery before and after photos below show the work of Dr. Zwicklbauer using the IDEAL IMPLANT. These photos depict a breast implant revision, where the patient’s previous implants were replaced with IDEAL IMPLANTS.
When an Implant Ruptures
The IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implant has no risk of “silent rupture.” Ruptures with silicone gel implants are considered “silent” since an MRI is the only way to detect them. If a rupture occurs, the sticky silicone gel begins to leak into surrounding tissues of the body requiring surgery to remove. The FDA recommends women with silicone gel implants receive an MRI every two years. When it comes to saline implants, the body easily and safely absorbs the saline if an implant ruptures. Women can detect their IDEAL IMPLANT is intact at all times by simply looking in the mirror. No MRI is needed.
