The continual debate over the safety of silicone breast implants has prompted more research for other breast implant alternatives. One such implant device known as the Ideal Implant, applies what plastic surgeon’s already know about saline implants but offers many of the benefits of what a silicone breast implant has typically only been able to provide.
A recent medical study of the Ideal Implant, published by the American Surgery Journal, has shown a very high rate of approval, both by patients and surgeons. The Ideal Implant is unique in that it is developed using a series of baffles. These baffles help stabilize the implant as well as help reduce implant wrinkling, sloshing like a water balloon and keep it’s projection, reducing the ptosis affect.
Furthermore, studies have shown that one of the unique advantages of this implant is that it has a lower rate of capsular contracture than standard saline and silicone breast implants.
Women who desire breast augmentation with saline filled breast implants but want more of the feel of a silicone gel implant would most likely be a candidate for the Ideal Implant.
The Ideal Implant is currently in it’s clinical study in the United States with wide adaptation coming soon.
