What are “Ideal Implants”?

The Ideal Implant® is the culmination of a years-long, intensive project to develop the best possible breast implant. Specifically, the Ideal Implant combines the natural look and feel of a silicone gel implant, with the superior safety properties of a saline implant. In that regard, the Ideal Implant is the best of both worlds, now available in a single set of implants.

Silicone gel implants have long been popular for the perfect aesthetic they make possible. However, the downside to them is that in the rare event one or both of them were to tear or rupture, that fact wouldn’t be known until an MRI scan was done. Meanwhile, silicone would likely be leaking from the implant, which is something no patient wants to have occur for both cosmetic and safety reasons.

With 85 percent of all breast augmentations currently using silicone implants, that unwanted condition could be pervasive. Fifteen percent of breast augmentations used the safer, but often less visually appealing, saline implants. Now, with the Ideal Implant, safety and stunning looks are simultaneously possible.

The best of both worlds in breast augmentation

Combining the aesthetic value of a silicone breast implant with the superior safety properties of a saline breast implant, the Ideal Implant was created by cosmetic surgeons. The Ideal Implant is a saline implant that, due to its interior design, provides the natural appearance and tissue-like feel of a silicone gel implant, without the wrinkling or the unnatural bounce and roundness typical of saline implants.


Benefits of the Ideal Implant

  • The Ideal Implant is approved by both the FDA in the U.S. as well as Health Canada of the Canadian Government.
  • Proven, patented technology; made with hypoallergenic saline
  • Its lower edges allow it to better fit the breast wall
  • Gives women the natural look of silicone gel implants and the safety of saline implants
  • Lower rates of rupture, capsular contracture and complications
  • Requires smaller incisions for placement
  • Patient will be able to detect most potential malfunctions on her own, in the mirror (unlike silicone implants).

This is accomplished with a series of inner shells and baffles that regulate the flow and movement of the enclosed saline, provide a stronger edge to the implant, reduce unnatural bouncing, and minimize or eliminate rippling. Additionally, these additional interior shell layers surrounding the saline filler help produce the natural look and feel of actual breast tissue that isn’t achievable with either saline or silicone alone.

Am I a good candidate for Ideal Implants?

The physical requirements for Ideal Implants are the same as those of a breast augmentation, which include:

  • Being in good general physical and emotional health
  • Being of sound mind, and holding realistic expectations for the procedure
  • Not smoking, or being able to ceases smoking entirely before and after the surgery

As with any implant, opting for Ideal Implants is a personal choice. Dr. Egrari will consult with you personally and share the pros and cons of each implant style, size and profile, and which one would likely work best to address your concerns and accomplish your particular goals for the procedure.


What is recovery like?

Following your breast augmentation surgery, you will be wearing a compression garment to reduce postoperative swelling and help ensure the procedure turns out looking incredible as planned. Surprisingly, pain medication will almost entirely ease discomfort throughout recovery. Bed rest and intermittent cold compresses (day one), very light exercise (walking, day two), and a good diet throughout will greatly speed recovery. Dr. Egrari will also provide you detailed recovery guidelines covering what should and shouldn’t be done for the best possible outcome. Recovery tends to be shorter than it would be with some other breast implant types, as smaller incisions are required.


The Ideal Implant’s statistical superiority

  • In clinical trials, rupture rates were several times higher for two brands of silicone gel implant than they were for the Ideal Implant. (16.4, 10, and 6.3 percent respectively.) The Ideal Implant showed the least risk of capsular contracture.
  • Deflation and the risk of rupture were likewise several times lower for the Ideal Implant. (7.4, 5.4, and 1.8 percent respectively).
  • In the unlikely event the Ideal Implant were to rupture, the saline within it is harmlessly absorbed by the body, and the patient would be aware of the rupture as it would be visible from outside as well: the implants would deflate, unlike silicone implants where a leak would be undetectable sans an MRI.
