The IDEAL IMPLANT®: New Breast Enhancement Option with Dr. Laurence Weider

Do you want a breast enhancement but are having a difficult time deciding between the various breast implant options? While women often know of silicone gel or saline implants, a new type of implant is now available—IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implants. This unique, innovative kind of implant offers the natural look and feel of silicone gel with the peace of mind and safety of saline.

Breast Enhancement with the IDEAL IMPLANT

Saline Breast Implants: Many women choose saline breast implants because they don’t want to worry about the risks commonly associated with silicone gel implants. Saline is natural solution, unlike silicone gel, that the body can safely absorb if an implant ruptures. However, a saline implant behaves more like a water balloon because it lacks any internal structure. This can create rippling and wrinkling under the skin as the upper portion collapses when the implant is in an upright position. While saline implants eliminate the worry of sticky silicone gel becoming trapped in surrounding body tissue, they do not replicate the natural look or feel of breast tissue.

Silicone Gel Breast Implants: Silicone gel implants give a more realistic look and natural feel than saline implants, but silicone gel implants have the risk of “silent rupture.” When a rupture occurs with a silicone gel implant, it can go unnoticed by a woman for many years. Without a woman knowing, the sticky silicone gel can begin to leak into the body tissue surrounding the implant. A physical examination cannot determine whether a silicone gel implant has ruptured, rather an MRI scan is required. This is why the FDA recommends women with silicone gel implants receive an MRI every two years following their breast augmentation surgery. The psychological stress and financial burden of regular MRI’s are major concerns among women.

IDEAL IMPLANT Structured Breast Implants: The IDEAL IMPLANT is called a “structured implant” due to its advanced internal structure. No other breast implant is designed like the IDEAL IMPLANT. It consists of a series of implant shells nested together to hold two separate chambers filled with saline. There is no risk of “silent rupture” and no follow-up MRI scans required. Women always know their IDEAL IMPLANTS are intact by simply looking in the mirror.

The Benefits of a “Structured Implant”

The IDEAL IMPLANT is a new, technology-driven breast implant option that offers the benefits, without the drawbacks, of both silicone gel and saline implants. The internal structure:

  • Allows the implant to have a more natural feel, realistic look, and youthful shape that women expect from a silicone gel implant
  • Offers the peace of mind that comes with saline
  • Controls the movement of the saline, which mitigates sloshing and eliminates the “water-hammer” effect
  • Supports the upper portion of the implant to prevent collapse when upright
  • Creates a smooth surface, reducing wrinkles and rippling of the implant

The Making of the IDEAL IMPLANT

The IDEAL IMPLANT Structured Breast Implant underwent 10 years of development, testing, and refinement to be able to provide these features, without compromising beauty for safety. In 2014, the IDEAL IMPLANT was approved by the FDA and Health Canada following a multi-center clinical trial of 502 women. The implants are only made in the USA from proven breast implant materials at an FDA-inspected facility using advanced robotics to maintain high quality standards and greater product consistency.  

The IDEAL IMPLANT has an adjustable volume. This is especially beneficial to women as they work together with their plastic surgeon to determine the implant size that would best match their cosmetic goals. It also allows surgeons to use a smaller incision during the breast enhancement and augmentation process than with silicone gel implants. Silicone gel implants are filled when manufactured, not during surgery. As a result, they can be damaged during surgery if attempted to fit through a small incision area. Furthermore, IDEAL IMPLANT Structured Breast Implants have a lower rupture rate than silicone gel implants.

Confidence with the IDEAL IMPLANT

In the video below, Ashley explains why she chose the IDEAL IMPLANT for her breast augmentation surgery:

“I’ve known that I wanted breast implants for about a decade because I was really uncomfortable with how they looked in comparison to the rest of my body. I felt like they were very disproportionate and I wasn’t confident. I’m a really, really low maintenance person and so I need some things like, ‘No muss, no fuss.’ After I have the surgery, I don’t want to have worry about it again, unless there’s a major issue. I don’t want any other associated costs. After viewing my options, I decided on the IDEAL IMPLANT and I’m thrilled with the choice. I feel great. I feel like it’s much more proportionate to my body. I couldn’t be happier. I’m the same person, I just feel better about myself, and I’m a lot more comfortable in my own skin. The safety reasons are a big reason why I went ahead and moved forward with the IDEAL IMPLANT. The ‘structured implant’ makes me feel comfortable knowing that if anything happens, not only am I going to notice a decrease in my breast size, but the saline is not going to create any issues like the ‘silent rupture’ would if I got another kind of implant. So now that I have the implants, I feel like my clothes fit so much better. I do feel really confident all the time. They just look and feel real. And a lot of people in my day-to-day life, don’t notice and can’t notice that I’ve had any work done. So all the insecurities I had of the entire world noticing, it was overrated.”
