What is the Ideal Implant?

The Ideal Implant Structured Breast Implant gives you the natural feel you want, and with advantages over silicone gel implants. Although it is filled with only saline for your peace of mind, the implant has a natural feel because of its internal supporting structure that controls movement of the saline. This internal structure supports the implant edges to reduce folding and wrinkling. In addition, the implant has been designed to contour to the natural curve of the chest wall.

If the Ideal Implant ruptures, the saline inside is harmlessly absorbed by the body. In addition, you have the confidence of knowing that your implants are intact just by looking in the mirror. 

In contrast, if a silicone gel implant ruptures, it is “silent” and cannot be detected by looking in the mirror. Current silicone gel implants have been shown to have a high rate of rupture based on MRI scans.

Who is a good candidate for the Ideal Implant?

Women seeking a unique solution to their breast augmentation desires will find the Ideal Implant to be an invaluable choice for enhancement. Candidates for breast surgery must be in good physical and emotional health, with no major medical issues to contend with. They should be non-smokers who are realistic in what they hope to achieve with surgery.

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.

What will recovery entail?

Dr. Poulos will provide you with pain medications to ease discomfort, and will offer a detailed aftercare plan to go over issues such as bathing, sleeping, exercising and wound care.
