Have You Heard of Ideal Implants?

Breast Augmentation San Diego CAAt Dr. Kearney’s we have patients who are interested in adding volume and shape to their breasts, but they’re not keen on using silicone implants to do so. Although they’ve heard silicone provides a more natural feeling result and doesn’t come with some of the problems with saline implants (such as rippling), they’re concerned about what is known as 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.

If you have similar concerns, 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

Ideal Implants were designed from start to finish to provide an alternative to silicone but that approximated much of what women like with silicone implants. 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.

Robotics provide manufacturing consistency

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. Kearney at (858) 677-9352 and schedule a consultation.
