WOMEN'S GUIDE TO BREAST IMPLANTS
Considering breast enhancement? If so, it's important to compare all of your implant options.
In the past, silicone gel implants have been known for providing a more natural look and feel over saline implants. Now, the IDEAL IMPLANT offers a similar beautiful, natural look and feel through its unique internal structure, yet with the peace of mind of only saline inside.
If a silicone gel implant ruptures, it's silent, and requires an MRI to diagnose.
That's why the FDA recommends women with silicone gel implants undergo an MRI every 2 years for the life of their implants.
With IDEAL IMPLANT, you will know if your implant has ruptured by simply looking in the mirror, so you will always know what is happening inside your body, no MRI is necessary.
If a silicone gel implant ruptures, the sticky silicone gel comes into contact with your body tissues and must be surgically removed with the implant shell. Surgery to correct a ruptured silicone gel implant may be complex and require a capsulectomy to remove all the scar tissue that has formed around the implant. It also requires a larger incision to remove the defective implant.
If an IDEAL IMPLANT ruptures, only saline comes into contact with your tissues, which is safely absorbed by the body. Surgery to correct a ruptured IDEAL IMPLANT is simple and can sometimes be done under local anesthetic, requiring a smaller incision to remove the empty implant shell.
What's more, IDEAL IMPLANT offers a lower risk of two important potential complications:
The first is the risk of implant rupture: With silicone gel, the risk at 7 to 8 years for primary augmentation can be as high as 13.6%, IDEAL IMPLANT has the lowest rupture rate for primary augmentation, at only 2.1%.
The second complication is capsule contracture, where the body forms scar tissue around the implant which squeezes or displaces the implant, and can sometimes cause pain. Silicone gel implant capsule contracture rates at 7 to 8 years can be as high as 16.2% for primary augmentation, compared to only 6.6% with IDEAL IMPLANT.
Finally, the lifetime surgical cost of the IDEAL IMPLANT is often lower than silicone gel, as you can keep your IDEAL implants in place as long as they last. Many surgeons recommend replacing silicone gel implants every 10 years due to the risk of silent rupture, which increases potential costs of surgeries and complications not covered by insurance or product warranties.
