The Ideal Implant Update


Ideal Implant internal structure Dr Barry Eppley IndianapolisThe Ideal implant is the first truly new idea in breast implants that has come along in decades. Its innovative internal baffle and dual chamber design allows a saline-filled implant to act more like a silicone breast implant. It has a fairly natural feel and does not develop rippling but also offers the piece of mind of being saline-filled device for those so concerned about silicone. It also will undergo complete deflation if there should be a disruption in the shell due to its two internal chambers.

The FDA has recently changed the Ideal Implant name from saline-filled to that of a ‘Structured Breast Implant’. This name change helps make for a clear distinction between that of the traditional saline breast implant. Now there are officially three types of breast implants; saline, structured and silicone gel.

The Ideal Implant or structured breast implant does not come in every size that is available with the more traditional saline and silicone implants…as of yet. But it does come in a fairly wide variety of sizes from 210cc to 635cc. A new 675cc size will be available shortly. Since one can slightly overfill the implant the range of implant sizes is virtually identical to that of silicone breast implants.
