IDEAL IMPLANT - to good to be true?
In addition, the design of the IDEAL IMPLANT allow it to maintain its contour very well, reduce the issues of wrinkling, control the movement of saline (sloshing) and fit better onto the chest wall because of its low edges. If you hold the implant upright, the upper portion of the implant does not collapse as many other implants do. The IDEAL IMPLANT clinical trial of over five years with over five hundred patients demonstrate a patient satisfaction rate of nearly 95% and the lowest deflation and capsular contracture rates compared to other implants.
In summary, this new saline implant really gives you the best of both worlds: a natural feel as with silicone without any concerns over silicone silent ruptures since it's saline. Further, it has an excellent safety profile based on extensive studies. At the end of the day, you are putting a foreign object into your body, potentially for the rest of your life. Safety should be a top priority in addition to achieving an excellent result. Having used all types of implants, this new implant has really become an excellent option to offer. I can't really think of a significant downside. The company is solid financially and has received significant investment from top investor firms. Hope that helps.

Seriously Consider the Ideal Implant
The Ideal Implant is here to stay. In a pre-FDA approval study with more than 500 patients followed, this implant exceeded expectations with regard to rupture rates and rates of capsular contracture. I have been personally very happy with the natural look and feel of these implants in my patients, and would highly recommend them to anyone considering silicone gel breast augmentation. I do not know of any cons other than the fact that Ideal Implants are somewhat more expensive than traditional saline, however, I suspect that the price will come down as they become more popular and the company's sales volumes increase.
IDEAL Implants a Good OptionL
Any cons to IDEAL implant?
There are not any cons that I can think of. I think the technology in the IDEAL implant with its multiple shells, or baffles, is a good step forward for saline implants. It does feel much better than the traditional saline implants and effectively reduces the feeling of the saline sloshing back and forth. There is a warranty for rupture through the company. Best of luck!
