IDEAL IMPLANT has a series of shells giving the implant a natural shape and feel.
When considering breast augmentation, many women often struggle to decide between saline or silicone implants. While saline implants offer peace of mind in case of a rupture, as the saline solution is safely absorbed into the body, they have been criticized by some for lacking a natural look and feel. In contrast, silicone implants are embraced for their natural appearance. However, a ruptured silicone implant may not be immediately apparent, allowing free silicone gel into the body.
Development began in 2006 to create an alternative breast implant with the natural look of silicone and the safety of saline. The result became the IDEAL IMPLANT. After 10 years of research and a U.S. clinical trial involving 502 women, the IDEAL IMPLANT is the product of hours of innovation by plastic surgeons, engineers, scientists, and consultants.
The key to the IDEAL IMPLANT is its unique internal structure. Compared to silicone or saline implants, which include only an outer shell and the inner gel or solution, the IDEAL IMPLANT has a series of shells. The inner shell surrounds the inner chamber and saline solution, with an outer shell containing the outer chamber and saline solution as well. Between each shell are one to three baffle shells, depending on the size of the implant. This complex structure gives the implant its natural shape and feel, as it controls the movement of the saline solution.
Dr. Anigian is one of nearly 150 plastic surgeons from across the country to partner with IDEAL IMPLANT.
A number of plastic surgeons ultimately chose to become stakeholders in the company, as they believed strongly in the product and its impact for their patients. Ideal Implant Incorporated is now majority owned by plastic surgeons, making it truly the “Plastic Surgeons’ Breast Implant Company.”
