Dr. David Pratt Explains Why He Thinks Older Breast Implants Will Become “Obsolete”

Women have searched for a way to safely enhance their busts for hundreds of years. Before the Food and Drug Administration began regulating breast implants, women’s breasts were injected with a variety of substances into in an effort to increase their size. More often than not, these experiments ended poorly. In 1962, the first silicone gel breast implants were used for breast enhancement. Since then, breast implant researchers and manufacturers have sought to develop safer and more effective implants. The IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implant was developed by a plastic surgeon who was looking for a different implant option for his patients. Find out why one Seattle area surgeon believes this new technology will make silicone gel implants “obsolete.”

IDEAL IMPLANT Structured Breast Implant Safety Profile 

Two of the most common reasons for breast implant reoperation are capsular contracture and rupture/deflation. Finding a breast implant that offers a low risk of complication and looks natural are top priorities for women seeking breast enhancement. According to eight-year FDA Core Clinical trial data, IDEAL IMPLANT Structured Breast Implants have one of the lowest rates of complications. Silicone gel breast implants have rupture risks of up to 13.6% through 8 years after a primary breast augmentation. In contrast, IDEAL IMPLANT Structured Breast Implant has a rupture risk of only 2.1%, through eight years after a primary breast augmentation.

Capsular contracture is a condition in which the scar tissue tightens around the implant, distorting it and becoming uncomfortably hard. Capsular contracture rates in some silicone gel breast implants are as high as 16.2%, through eight years after a primary breast augmentation. Capsular contracture rates with with IDEAL IMPLANT Structured Breast Implants are only 6.6% through eight years after a primary breast augmentation.

IDEAL IMPLANT Structured Breast Implant Natural Look and Feel

In addition to the safety profile, women across the nation love the natural look and feel of the IDEAL IMPLANT. Dr. David Pratt, a board-certified plastic surgeon in Kirkland, Washington, tells us, “for most women who opt for breast implants, safety is a primary concern, however the desire for a beautiful, natural appearing and feeling breast is also vitally important. The IDEAL IMPLANT delivers flawlessly with regard to both safety and a super-natural result!” The IDEAL IMPLANT is a saline-filled implant, but because of the internal structure it has the softness and stability of a silicone gel breast implant. IDEAL IMPLANT is also filled during the procedure rather than coming pre-filled. This provides a wider variety of breast implant sizes as each IDEAL IMPLANT is filled exactly according to the individual patient’s needs.

IDEAL IMPLANT Lifetime Warranty

Breast implant manufacturers stand behind their products in the form of warranties, though warranties typically expire after ten years. In addition, most breast implant revision surgeries are not covered by insurance companies, even if they are medically necessary. According to Dr. Pratt, “the IDEAL IMPLANT comes with a lifetime warranty which is unparalleled in the breast implant industry.” Instead of expiring at ten years, the IDEAL IMPLANT Premium Protection Plan is renewable on an annual basis. With the IDEAL IMPLANT Premium Protection Plan, you are protected from most of the out of pocket costs of a revision surgery. The IDEAL IMPLANT Premium Protection Plan includes:

  • $10,000 in financial protection during the first 60 days after your breast augmentation to cover post-surgical complications.
  • $5,000 in financial protection for the first year to cover capsular contracture, scar revision, rupture/deflation, and other related events.
  • $5,000 in financial protection each year you renew your protection plan to cover capsular contracture, scar revision, rupture/deflation, and other related events.
  • LIFETIME breast implant replacement for rupture, 10 year replacement for capsular contracture.

Breast implants should provide you with increased self-esteem, not anxiety about the possibility of a reoperation. The IDEAL IMPLANT Premium Protection Plan gives you increased peace of mind so you can protect your finances and live worry-free.
