If my doctor did not tell me about the "ideal" implants as an option, is it even possible for him to do those?

Natural feel is not the only thing women care about. The FDA approved intact silicone gel implants as safe. However, if a gel implant ruptures the implant and any gel should be removed including the surrounding capsule (capsulectomy). IDEAL® IMPLANT offers women natural feel without the risk of silent rupture. Women value the advantages of IDEAL® IMPLANT over silicone gel: Rupture Advantages
- No silent ruptures
- Saline absorbed, free Silicone Gel remains
- No MRI needed to detect ruptures
- Look in the mirror to know implants are intact
- Easy to remove and replaced if ruptured
- Only saline inside for peace of mind
- Safety of saline
- No silicone gel in the body
- Youthful shape/contour
- Lower capsule contracture rate
- Higher rupture strength
- Low rupture rate
Find a Surgeon Who is Experienced with Ideal Implants
All surgeons have their own opinion regarding what type of breast implant is appropriate for any particular patient. It is important for your surgeon to be thoroughly familiar and comfortable with whatever implant they are planning to use. It sounds like the surgeon you saw in consultation was not familiar with the Ideal Implant, thus, they are probably not the best choice for using this type of implant. You can certainly discuss this issue with them and see what their thoughts are regarding the Ideal Implant.
My best advice would be to seek out a surgeon who is Board Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and who has extensive experience with Ideal Implants.
I hope that I have answered your questions satisfactorily. Good Luck!
