Dallas Plastic Surgeon Says New IDEAL Breast Implants Combine Benefits Of Saline and Silicone

Share Article

Dr. Zachary Farris says the IDEAL IMPLANT recently approved by the FDA is the only natural feeling saline breast implant, giving women a new option for breast augmentation at his Dallas practice. “Unlike conventional saline implants, the IDEAL IMPLANT has an internal design to maintain its contour for a more natural look and feel with less wrinkling while avoiding the rupture concerns of silicone implants.”

The IDEAL IMPLANT is the only natural feeling saline implant and has become an excellent option to consider in breast augmentation.

“A new saline breast implant known as The IDEAL IMPLANT provides the soft, natural feel of silicone implants without the risk of silent ruptures or the need for MRI testing every few years,” says Dr. Zachary Farris, a board certified plastic surgeon who is among the first to offer breast augmentation using the new implant.
“The IDEAL IMPLANT is a “structured” breast implant that feels natural, like a silicone implant but offers the reassurance of being filled with saline,” says Dr. Farris. “Silent ruptures are clinically undetectable ruptures that occur in silicone implants. The implants could be ruptured with silicone coming in direct contact with body tissue, but women wouldn’t be able to tell by looking in the mirror.  This is why the FDA recommends getting an MRI every few years for women with silicone breast implants, as an MRI is the best way to detect these silent ruptures. The IDEAL IMPLANT eliminates the need for periodic MRI testing while providing a more natural look, feel and fit previously available only with silicone implants. Fuller upper breast contours are an added benefit.”
“This implant is designed with a series of implant “shells” nested together and two separate chambers, which are filled with saline,” says Dr. Farris. “The internal structure controls movement of the saline and is designed to reduce folding and wrinkling, which is thought to be the main cause of implant rupture and deflation. The implants’ external edges have been lowered for better contouring to the chest wall.”
“Based on a clinical trial of about 500 patients with a follow-up of over 5 years, the IDEAL IMPLANT has the lowest deflation (rupture) and capsular contracture rates compared to other implants and has a satisfaction rate of nearly 95% amongst women,” says Dr. Farris. “In addition, the internal design of the IDEAL IMPLANT allows it to maintain its contour very well, have less wrinkling, and fit better on the chest wall because of its low edges.  When held upright, the upper portion of the implant does not collapse as most other implants do. It's the only natural feeling saline implant available and is an excellent option to consider in breast augmentation.”
