Now available in our office, the IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implant has the natural feel that women want. After years of development and refinement, including contributions of clinical expertise from plastic surgeons, the IDEAL IMPLANT was approved by FDA and Health Canada. It combines the best of both - natural feel with the safety of only saline inside for peace of mind.

The IDEAL IMPLANT has a series of implant shells nested together and two separate chambers that hold the saline. This internal structure controls movement of the saline and supports the implant edges to reduce folding and wrinkling.  In addition, the implant has been designed to contour to the natural curve of the chest wall. With the IDEAL IMPLANT, a woman can simply look in the mirror and know her implants are intact.

Although it is filled with only saline for your peace of mind, the implant has a natural feel because of its internal supporting structure that controls movement of the saline.

The IDEAL IMPLANT has been in clinical use since February 2009, at the start of the clinical trial. By February 2010, 502 women received the IDEAL IMPLANT from 45 board certified plastic surgeon investigators nationwide. In clinical follow-up over five years, patient and surgeon satisfaction with the outcome has been high and the capsule contracture rate has been low.

Women have wanted a new type of breast implant – one that would combine the natural feel of a silicone gel implant with only saline inside for safety and peace of mind. After years of research, engineering, product development and a large US clinical trial, the IDEAL IMPLANT was approved by FDA and Health Canada, and is now available through a limited network of board certified or eligible plastic surgeons.

The Facts

The IDEAL IMPLANT  uses a revolutionary new technology that offers women a natural feel without silicone gel, and the safety of only saline inside for peace of mind.  This eliminates the concern women have with silicone gel implant.  

  • Original saline implants do not feel natural, and are prone to ‘wrinkling” and “bouncing”. 
  • The IDEAL IMPLANT is round, so rotation does not affect its appearance, whereas tear-drop shaped implants appear abnormal if they rotate.
  • The IDEAL IMPLANT has a youthful shape and projection, desifned to conform to the natural curve of the chest wall, with the edges closer to the ribs.  The result is a breast augmentation that looks and feels natural, without the risk of undetected silicone gel rupture. 


Dr. Brett Beber Toronto the Ideal Implant structure

The IDEAL IMPLANT has a unique internal structure consisting of two saline-filled chambers and a series of implant shells of increasing size nested together. 

  • This internal structure is designed to control movement of the saline filler, so theres is less “bouncing”, scalloping” and “wrinkling”.  When held upright, the internal structure supports the upper portion of the implant, so it does not collapse.
  • The amount of saline used to fill the implant can be adjusted to correct for differences in the size of a women’s breasts. 
  • The IDEAL IMPLANT is inserted empty through a relatively small incision, then filled with saline through two self-sealing valves. It is designed to allow surgeons choices of subglandular or submuscular position, volume adjustment and location of the incision.
  • The healing time is exactly the same as with any another breast implant.
