This year, the California Society of Plastic Surgeons (CSPS) awarded Dr. Terry Zimmerman the Best Overall Scientific Paper Award for his presentation of: IDEAL IMPLANT® - Seven-Year Clinical Trial Results at the 68th CSPS Annual Meeting. Dr. Zimmerman has also been asked to present the paper again at the upcoming ASPS (American Society of Plastic Surgeons) meeting in Chicago this fall.
“I am honored to receive this award for my presentation of the extensive clinical trial results that supported FDA approval of the IDEAL IMPLANT®. The hard work and dedication of the 45 U.S. plastic surgeon investigators has confirmed the performance of an implant technology that better addresses women’s concerns, with evidence of a lower risk of complications,” explained Dr. Terry Zimmerman of The Zimmerman Center for Plastic Surgery.
IDEAL IMPLANT®, the only structured implant on the market, is the latest advancement in the breast implant industry with a patented, unique internal structure consisting of a series of implant shells nested together and two chambers filled with saline. The structure supports the upper part of the implant, so it does not collapse when upright, and supports the edge to minimize wrinkling, resulting in a natural look and feel, without the risk of silent rupture. Seven-year data for primary breast augmentation has demonstrated a lower rupture rate than other implants at 1.8%.
“I am elated that Dr. Zimmerman has been recognized by the California Society of Plastic Surgeons for his work as a trial investigator, and for his effort to educate his colleagues about the IDEAL IMPLANT®,” said Robert S. Hamas, MD, President and CEO of Ideal Implant Incorporated “The IDEAL IMPLANT® provides women with a breast implant option that combines the natural feel of a silicone gel implant and the safety of a saline implant, without the compromises of either, such as silent rupture and an unnatural feel.”
