The Cost of Breast Implants was Worth Every Penny

RealSelf user abruch, a nurse from upstate New York, had always felt like she was small in bra size and overall stature and was ready for a much needed boost of confidence. While doing her research on saline and silicone breast implants, she found the IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implant, and realized that she had more options than she thought. She explains her thought process, how she compared the costs, found the right surgeon for her, and what she thinks of her end result. 

The Beginning

Patient abruch says, “I have always been small, both in bra size and in overall stature. I am 28, have had one child, and breast feed and pumped for 8 months. I am 5’3, 118 pounds and use to wear a 32B. I did my research extensively, I am a nurse myself and wanted to ensure my best and safest result. I stumbled across the IDEAL IMPLANT a year ago and was intrigued by [the] hybrid like implant, saline filled but will feel and act like silicone [breast implants] due to the shell of the implant.” 

Once she discovered the IDEAL IMPLANT and researched all of its benefits, such as its ability to maintain a perky profile while feeling soft like a silicone gel implant, she knew it was exactly what she wanted. She also loved that, because it is filled with saline, it offers women peace of mind and instant rupture detection. When women choose the IDEAL IMPLANT, they don’t have to worry about FDA recommended MRI’s or silent rupture. Based on a recent 8-year study, the IDEAL IMPLANT had the lowest risk of rupture and capsular contracture rates compared to silicone breast implants. 

Finding the Right Surgeon

After comparing feel, risk, and the cost of breast implants, abruch knew she wanted the IDEAL IMPLANT and a board certified plastic surgeon. Though the IDEAL IMPLANT is growing in popularity, it is exclusively available to board certified plastic surgeons who wish to offer it to their patients. She goes on to say, 

“The only problem with the IDEAL IMPLANT is their availability in my area. I am from upstate New York and the closest areas were either across the border in Canada or driving to the city (6 Hour Drive) so I did some looking and found a board certified, well-reviewed surgeon who is located in Florida. Since I thought it would be a great idea to go on vacation and recuperate in the sunshine versus up here in the winter tundra I made the journey to Florida. I met with Dr. Roxanne Sylora at the Institute of Aesthetic Surgery and loved her!! She’s very experienced and well-known for her breast reconstruction and breast implants. I called the office and spoke with their coordinator Cheryl who I absolutely loved. The customer service at this Institute has been phenomenal.”

The Surgery and Cost of Breast Implants

She flew to Florida and went to her surgery appointment. “I went for my breast augmentation on March 19. I did get my IDEAL IMPLANTs of 375 CCs. The surgery went well, something that was a PRO to me was the fact that I wasn’t going to be put completely under with anesthesia, instead they use MAC (monitored anesthesia care), so essentially I was not completely under and was able to not be placed on a ventilator. I now am two weeks post-op and think this procedure was worth every penny and worth years of saving for.”

She explains that the IDEAL IMPLANT, though more expensive than her other options, still seemed to be the smartest choice because it gave her peace of mind as well as a reliable protection plan

“Now I will say that the IDEAL IMPLANTs were more costly than both saline and silicone [breast implants]. The IDEAL IMPLANTs cost me about $1300 more than the silicone but do appear to be much safer in retrospect. I was also able to purchase an insurance on the IDEAL IMPLANTs which covered a lot of potential complications post-op including infection, blood clots, and capsular contracture. With my track record that gives me peace of mind.”

“I already feel more confident with my body and I can’t wait for the rest of the healing process to occur . . . I’ve already seen a change in my implants—they have been becoming softer and appear slightly lower.
