Our Services: Ideal Breast Implants | Toronto, ON
What is Ideal Implant?
The Ideal Implant is a ‘Structured Breast Implant’. Unlike other implants which are a single shell with a single cavity filled with either saline or silicone gel, the Ideal Implant contains a complex network of shells which contain saline, but look and feel like silicone because of the sophisticated internal shell structure.
While the original saline-filled implants have a single lumen within a single shell made from cross- linked silicone elastomer, the IDEAL IMPLANT has two lumens within two nested shells that are attached at the patch on the back of the implant.
A saline breast implant is like a water balloon. Saline implant has no internal structure, the upper portion collapses when held upright and it tends to wrinkle. This is called rippling and is the most significant reason why people shy away from saline implants.
Silicone Breast Implant
Silicone gel is softer than saline, making silicone implant feel more natural and more like a real breast. Standard silicone gel-filled implants feel somewhat like breast tissue, but because they are filled when manufactured, as opposed to during the surgery, they can be damaged if forced through a small incision. Ruptures of silicone gel implants are usually undetectable by looking in the mirror or by physical examination, and require an MRI scan of the breasts for detection.
The Structured Breast Implant has an inner shell around the inner chamber, which holds the inner saline filler, and an outer shell around the outer chamber, which holds the outer saline filler. Between these shells are one to three baffle shells. This internal structure is designed to control movement of the saline inside and is what gives the IDEAL IMPLANT its natural feel.

Advantages of Ideal Implant Over Silicone Gel Implants
When intact, silicone gel implants are FDA approved and safe. But when they rupture, the FDA states the “implant and any gel should be removed.” Yet silicone gel ruptures are silent, meaning they can only be detected by an MRI, so the FDA recommends that women have an MRI scan every other year to find out if their implants have ruptured. IDEAL IMPLANT offers a natural feel without these concerns.
The IDEAL IMPLANT has a natural feel without risk of silent rupture, a youthful shape and contour, and many advantages women value over round silicone gel implants. You will always know your implants are intact simply by looking in the mirror, because you shouldn’t have to choose between natural feel and peace of mind.
