Ideal Implant The Woodlands
The Ideal Implant is a new class of implants called Structured Saline Implants. Compared to traditional saline implants, which have a single layered outer shell, the structured saline ideal implants, have multiple shells or layers providing a more natural structure to the traditional saline implants
This is a game changer in many ways. The layered shells eliminate the wrinkling or rippling that is so problematic with traditional saline. In addition, the implants look and feel the same as a silicone cohesive gel implant that we commonly use today. I often place both implants under a cloth towel and ask the patients to differentiate the silicone from the structured saline ideal implant. Unanimously, patients cannot feel or see a difference. Hence, in clothing, the look and feel of these ideal implants replicates silicone implants, and it does not wrinkle or ripple, as traditional saline implants do.

Lastly, many women will find comfort in not having to worry if their silicone implant is ruptured, or having to spend money every 2 years to obtain an MRI to test their implants. With saline implants, the deflation is immediate and obvious to the patient, making it easier to address the rupture and lessen patient anxiety. Plus, the saline fluid that constitutes your implant is the same saline fluid used when a patient gets iv fluids. Hence, your body absorbs it quickly and immediately.
Now available in our office, the IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implant has the natural feel that women want, and advantages over silicone gel implants. After years of development and refinement, including contributions of clinical expertise from plastic surgeons, the IDEAL IMPLANT was approved by FDA and Health Canada. It combines the best of both – natural feel with the safety of only saline inside for peace of mind.
The IDEAL IMPLANT has a series of implant shells nested together and two separate chambers that hold the saline. This internal structure controls movement of the saline and supports the implant edges to reduce folding and wrinkling. In addition, the implant has been designed to contour to the natural curve of the chest wall. With the IDEAL IMPLANT, a women can simply look in the mirror and know her implants are intact.
