Using the IDEAL IMPLANT For His New York Plastic Surgery Practice
Q: What do you like about the IDEAL IMPLANT as a surgeon?
A: I like giving patients an option of great implant that they could forget about once implanted.
Q: What types of patients can benefit from the IDEAL IMPLANT and why?
A: Patients who want breast augmentation and have decent soft tissue coverage whether or not they need a breast lift at the same time.
Q: How does the IDEAL IMPLANT favorably compare to saline implants and silicone-gel Implants (including “gummy-bear” implants)?
A: For saline implants, the IDEAL IMPLANT is a much more natural feel, minimizing the risk of rippling after surgery. For silicone gel Implants (including “gummy-bear” implants), a smaller incision can be used in addition to obviating the need for MRI scans postoperatively.
