When the FDA approved the return of silicone implants in 2006 after removing approval for 10 years to conduct more research, doctors and patients both were pleased. Most people believe that silicone implants feel more like natural breast tissue than saline implants.
Still, some women are uneasy with silicone implants. They worry about what is known as “silent rupture.” This is where the implant ruptures, but the woman has no idea because, unlike saline, the implant doesn’t deflate. These women would rather have saline implants, but don’t like the potential wrinkles and creases, and unnatural feel of saline implants.
That presented a hard choice for our Austin Cosmetic Surgery patients. But there is another option. It’s an option that is unknown to many women — Ideal Implants. These implants are made with a unique method that gives them a natural feel and youthful look, without using silicone gel. Ideal Implants have undergone 10 years of development, testing, and refinement and were approved by the FDA in 2014. We think they’re worth putting into consideration when doing your research for breast augmentation with the team here at Austin Cosmetic Surgery.
