Do You Know About Ideal Implants?
- Posted on: Dec 31 2019
Some of our Lewisville patients want to add shape to their figure through breast augmentation, but they’re reluctant to choose silicone implants. They’ve heard that the feel of silicone implants is more akin to that of natural breast tissue, but they worry about silent rupture. That’s the colloquial term for a rupture of a silicone implant. In most cases, the woman doesn’t know if a silicone implant has ruptured, as today’s more cohesive silicone gel usually stays within the implant. That’s far different than saline implants: when they rupture, the implant fully deflates as the body absorbs the saline solution. But they’ve also heard that saline can develop wrinkles and creases, and they don’t feel natural.
If this sounds like you, you may want to consider a type of implant known as the Ideal Implant. These implants are made with a unique method that gives them a natural feel and youthful look, without using silicone gel. Ideal Implants have undergone 10 years of development, testing, and refinement and were approved by the FDA in 2014.
Saline that doesn’t feel like saline
The Ideal Implant was designed for women who want a natural look and feel but don’t want silicone. The innovative design is the key. A series of implant shells are nested together and two separate chambers hold the saline solution. The unique internal structure controls movement of the saline for a more natural feel, while reducing folding and wrinkles, which is thought to be the main cause of saline implant rupture and deflation. On the outside of these implants the edges have been lowered for a more natural contouring to the chest wall.
Proven materials. Stringent manufacturing processes
The Ideal Implant is a structured breast implant whose design is unique. It is made from safe and proven breast implant materials, and they contain no silicone gel or new untested materials. The Ideal Implant is made using advanced robotics to achieve greater product consistency.
The advantages of the Ideal Implant
No woman likes the nagging concern of the possible rupture of a silicone implant. The Ideal Implant offers many of the benefits of saline and silicone gel implants without some of the drawbacks:
- Youthful shape and natural feel
- Filled with saline that is safely absorbed by the body if rupture occurs
- No sticky silicone gel from ruptured implants in surrounding tissues
- No silent rupture — you’ll know if your implants are intact
- Lower rupture rate and higher rupture strength
- Requires a smaller incision than silicone gel implants
- No costly MRIs needed to detect silicone gel rupture
- Smooth surface
You should probably include the Ideal Implant in your research on breast augmentation. If you want to do some research on your own, click the Ideal website, or call Dr. Lipton to set up a consultation at (972) 420-0023.
