For many years, women undergoing breast augmentation had to choose between silicone gel-filled breast implants or saline (salt water) filled breast implants. However, in 2015 a third option became available that combined many of the best characteristics of both silicone gel-filled and saline filled implants.
IDEAL IMPLANT structured saline implants are saline filled implants that contain internal baffles or shells that provide a supportive structure. This means that unlike traditional saline-filled implants, IDEAL IMPLANTS hold their shape and provide a natural looking result that is very similar to a gel-filled implant. This reduces the risk of complications associated with standard saline implants such as visible rippling and wrinkling of the overlying breast skin. However, unlike a gel-filled implant, if an IDEAL IMPLANT develops a leak, you will know almost immediately. In addition, the saline will be harmlessly absorbed by the body. This measure of safety and peace of mind is why many women choose the IDEAL IMPLANT.

Many women love the natural look and feel of silicone gel-filled implants. However, in the unlikely event of damage to the shell of a silicone gel implant, it is often impossible for the patient or her doctor to detect a leak or rupture. Therefore, periodic MRI studies are recommended to check for gel leakage. Due to concerns about a “silent rupture” of a silicone gel-filled implant, some women opt for saline filled implants. This can compromise the look and feel of their breasts. For those concerned about the risk of “silent rupture” of a silicone gel-filled implant but who want the look and feel of silicone gel, IDEAL IMPLANT combines the best attributes of both implants.
Like any breast augmentation procedure performed by Dr. Weider, surgery with the IDEAL IMPLANT will be performed under general anesthesia to ensure patient safety and comfort. Unlike a silicone gel-filled implant, the IDEAL IMPLANTS are filled once they are inserted in the pockets created by Dr. Weider. One of the benefits of IDEAL IMPLANTS is that each implant has an optimal fill range allowing for correction of minor differences in breast size. After filling the implants with saline and confirming implant position and breast shape, the incisions are carefully closed with absorbable stitches and dressings are placed.
After a breast augmentation with the IDEAL IMPLANT, some swelling and mild discomfort can be expected. Typically, work can be resumed within 5 days, but more strenuous activity should be avoided for three to six weeks. As swelling diminishes and the implants begin to settle into position, patients can enjoy their breast enhancement with the IDEAL IMPLANTS. Patients can have peace of mind knowing that in the unlikely event of a rupture, the saline will be harmlessly absorbed by their body and the risk of other complications like rippling and capsular contracture are reduced.
