IDEAL IMPLANT San Diego
The IDEAL IMPLANT Structured Breast Implant gives you the natural feel you want, but without silicone gel. 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.
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 may be “silent” and not always detected by looking in the mirror.
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.
In the past 8 months IDEAL IMPLANT has been featured in newspapers including The NewYork Times and the San Francisco Chronicle, there has been IDEAL coverage on popular news sites like Yahoo and Refinery 29 and women’s magazines including Elle and Allure and IDEAL has appeared in numerous TV segments including the nationally syndicated daytime show The Doctors. for more newsabout IDEAL, visit their website.
