There have been a lot of advances in breast augmentation procedures in the past few years as far as safety and aesthetics. The latest technology in breast implants is the Ideal Implant, and it has many advantages over the older saline and silicone types of implants.
Saline, while popular in the past, has the disadvantage of not feeling like natural breast tissue. If the implant is damaged, the shell has to be surgically replaced; however, saline does have an advantage in that if it is damaged and the saline leaks out, it is harmlessly absorbed by the body.
Silicone implants feel more natural than those made with saline. However, there is a risk that they can become damaged and the silicone gel can leak out into the body, which can be very painful and has to be removed surgically. This damage can only be detected with an MRI scan.
Ideal Implants feel and look natural. They are made with an internal structure of two separate chambers, which helps to prevent wrinkling and collapse. They were designed to have a contoured, natural look, even along the outside edges.
They are also very safe – they contain saline instead of silicone, and they have been shown to have a high rupture strength and a low rupture rate. If a rupture should occur, it is easy enough to detect. Unlike with silicone implants, which require an MRI check, you can just look in the mirror for reassurance that your implants are intact and all right. And, if you do ever decide that you want them removed, this is easily done.
As you can see, saline and silicone implants have their advantages and disadvantages. Ideal Implants combine the advantages of saline and silicone without the disadvantages – they feel natural, are safe, and provide peace of mind.
