Breast augmentation is an increasing trend among people nationwide, but there are many factors to consider when making this decision. It is a simple way to gain more breast volume or correct the shape of asymmetrical breasts. With all the different types of breast implants available, one that stands out: the IDEAL implant.
If you’ve been researching breast augmentation, you know about your options for saline breast implants or silicone breast implants. The IDEAL implant is different in that it achieves the natural, soft feel of silicone gel implants with a saline solution. This combines the safety and visible rupture benefits of saline implants with the more favorable feeling of silicone gel implants. Let’s see how this makes the IDEAL implant your ideal choice for breast implant surgery.
1. Leads to Lower Rupture Rate and Higher Rupture Strength
One of the biggest benefits of the IDEAL implant is that it has a lower rupture rate. In fact, studies have shown that the rupture rate for IDEAL implants is less than 1%. Compare this to other implants on the market with a rupture rate of 10-15%, and you can see why the IDEAL implant is such a great choice.
2. No MRI Needed for Rupture Check
Unlike silicone implants, saline ones reveal ruptures easily, through a sudden and dramatic change in breast shape as the saline leaks out and is safely absorbed by your body. This eliminates the fear of “silent rupture,” where silicone gel could be leaking into the breast pocket without you knowing, except through expensive and cumbersome MRI exams.
3. Saline is Safely Absorbed by Body if Ruptured
The sterile saline solution used in the IDEAL implant is safely absorbed by the body if there is a rupture. This means you don’t have to worry about the impact of silicone gel in your body when one of those implants ruptures.
4. Allows a Smaller Incision than Silicone Gel Implants
The IDEAL implant has a smaller incision because saline implants can be inserted prior to being filled, unlike silicone implants, which must have an incision wide enough to fit the whole implant while filled. When compared to other procedures, this means that you will have less scarring in the long term.
