IDEAL IMPLANT Safety And Performance Statistics By Constance M. Barone, M.D. on December 11, 2019

IDEAL IMPLANT Offers Excellent Safety Profile

In the article, which was published in the July 2018 issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, the six year FDA Core Study results were explained. According to authors Larry S. Nichter, M.D., Robert A. Hardesty, M.D., and Gregg M. Anigian, M.D., the IDEAL IMPLANT Structured Breast Implant provides one of the best safety profiles on the market today. While the article reviews the six year data, eight year data is now available which further confirms the findings at six years. At eight years after a primary breast augmentation, IDEAL IMPLANT has a rupture/deflation rate of only 2.1%, compared to 7.2% - 13.6% in silicone gel breast implants. Capsular contracture rates are also low, at 6.6% after a primary breast augmentation, compared to 10.9% - 16.2% in silicone gel breast implants. 



Patient And Surgeon Satisfaction Is High

In addition to its safety profile, IDEAL IMPLANT has a high rate of patient and surgeon satisfaction. Patient satisfaction following a replacement breast augmentation was 91.6%. Surgeon satisfaction after a replacement augmentation was 94.0%. According to Dr. Nichter,  “This advancement offers the natural feel which originally pushed women toward silicone gel options, yet without the risk of silent rupture or need for regular MRIs as recommended by the FDA with silicone gel.” Women are loving their results, and the fact that they do not need to be anxious about the status of their implants.
