IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implant is a new type of implant that 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.

What is a Silent Rupture?

When a silicone implant ruptures, it is called a “silent rupture” because it can be hard to detect just by looking in the mirror. That is why the FDA recommends an MRI scan every two years to detect if silicone implants are still intact.

The IDEAL IMPLANT has a natural look and feel without the risk of silent rupture like silicone implants. You will always know if your implants are intact simply by looking into a mirror!


The IDEAL IMPLANT offers many benefits, including:

  • Youthful shape and feel
  • Filled with saline that is safely absorbed by the body if ruptured
  • No sticky silicone gel involved
  • Requires a smaller incision than silicone implants
  • Lower rupture rate and higher rupture strength

The IDEAL IMPLANT was approved by the FDA in 2014 after years of research and testing led by this innovative design, developed to better meet the needs of women looking for natural-looking breast augmentation without the concerns of silicone gel ruptures. It is filled only with saline, which many women like for peace of mind in case of rupture.
