Ideal Breast Implant
Dr. Watterson is proud to offer patients in Salt Lake, Draper, Lehi, Provo, and the surrounding areas, the IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implant. The IDEAL IMPLANT® is a groundbreaking new type of implant. This implant is filled with saline but has an internal structure to make it behave as if filled with silicone gel. The IDEAL IMPLANT contains a series of nested shells that provide support to the edges and control fluid movement to prevent bouncing. The result is an implant that combines certain key features and benefits of both saline and silicone gel implants.
Like the saline implant, the filler is only saline, meaning you can have peace of mind in case of a rupture/deflation. Like the silicone gel implant, it has a natural feel, but without the risk of silent rupture and FDA-recommended MRI scans – women can simply look in the mirror and know their implants are intact. In addition, clinical trial results at 8 years show the IDEAL IMPLANT® has a lower rate of capsule contracture and a lower rate of rupture than silicone gel or saline implants for primary augmentation.
