Top plastic surgeons around the country weigh in on the advantages of Ideal Implant for women considering breast implants and/or breast augmentation.
What are the advantages of the Ideal Implant over saline or silicone-filled implants?
“The Ideal Implant has a much softer, more natural feel than a saline implant. It compares favorably to silicone gel implants for those women who are concerned about monitoring silicone gel implants for silent rupture (as recommended by the FDA at 3 years after surgery and then every 2 years for life).”
What types of patients can benefit from the Ideal Implant and why?
“Most breast augmentation patients can benefit from the Ideal Implant. It provides a natural feel, youthful appearance, and gives patients peace of mind when it comes to the safety of the implant. The incision is smaller, which results in less potential for scarring. Overall, it is the best implant for the majority of our patients.”

How do I know if I am a good candidate for the Ideal Implant?
“The Ideal Implant is truly Ideal because it combines the safety of saline implants with the feel and shape of the silicone implants. All patients can benefit from Ideal Implants, but patients who desire the safety of saline implants and are concerned about the need to do an MRI every other year to detect implant rupture are best suited for the Ideal Implant.
“The silicone implants are favored by the patients because of the softer feel that they offer. The Ideal implants offer similar feel and shape, but in addition, there is no concern about the silent rupture and there is no need to do an MRI every two years. The Ideal Implants can also be used in patients under 22 years old, as the FDA has placed a restriction on the use of silicone implants in patients who are under 22 years of age.”
What do you like about the IDEAL implant as a surgeon?
“I like the Ideal Implant, as it gives the patient another choice besides the ordinary saline implants and the silicone gel implants in its various iterations. The feel of the Ideal implants, the safety factor and the statistics to date make Ideal Implant a strong option for women to consider.”
