Choosing the right implant type for your body and lifestyle can be daunting, but Dr. Poulos offers an informative and educational consultation that will set you at ease and empower your decision making. The Ideal Implant is just one of many choices for breast augmentation that can help enhance your self-image and increase your wardrobe options.
What are the benefits of the Ideal Impant?
Women have wanted a new type of breast implant – one that would combine the natural feel of a silicone gel implant with only saline inside for safety and peace of mind. After years of research, engineering, product development and a large US clinical trial, the Ideal Implant was approved by FDA and Health Canada, and is now available through a limited network of board certified or eligible plastic surgeons.
The Ideal Implant has been in clinical use since February 2009, at the start of the clinical trial. By February 2010, 502 women received the Ideal Implant from 45 board certified plastic surgeon investigators nationwide. In clinical follow-up over five years, patient and surgeon satisfaction with the outcome has been high and the capsule contracture rate has been low.
