So This Could Be the Future Of Boob Jobs

But is the Ideal Implant really ideal?

Most Popular

If you've never considered having a boob job, then the differences
between implants will probably mean nothing to you and you should stop
reading this. Like, RN.

But for those of us who've ever considered having breast augmentation
surgery, or even if the whole plastic surgery thing just fascinates you
(HUMAN BARBIE AND KEN *cough*) and you want to be in the know, then this implant news will be a motorboat for your brain.

For the first time in 20 years, a new saline implant has been
approved by the FDA and it could very well be a game changer. Here's
why.

There are currently two types of breast implants on the market, silicone-gel and saline, and there are pros and cons to both.

(Yes, we've sent man to the moon and we still haven't mastered the perfect implant).

Silicone-gel implants

On one hand, silicone-gel implants feel softer and more natural than
the saline-kind, however they're associated with a fear of a "silent
rupture", whereby they rupture and the substance leaks into the body
without detection.

Saline implants

With that said, some people prefer to opt for saline implants because
they're a "natural" substance and the scars can be shorter (because you
can place the implant inside through a smaller incision and then
inflate it). You'll also know immediately if a saline implant ruptures,
so it doesn't fly under the radar like silicone-gel implants.

But they feel harder than silicone-gel implants and have the potential to move around, wrinkle and fold. 

The Ideal Implant

Comprehend those differences? ('Course you do). Well, the Ideal Implant aims to combine the best characteristics of both implants.

Created by plastic surgeon, Robert Hamas, Ideal Implant, is a saline
implant which is apparently less likely to move around, fold and
wrinkle, thanks to silicone baffle shells which keep everything in
place.

According to some forums
this kind of implant is perfect for people who want saline-filled
implants with the feel of a gel implant. Good one, plastic surgery. 

While that all sounds magical, experts have adopted a wait-and-see
attitude before they draw a conclusion about its durability and
aesthetic. With that in mind, being approved by the FDA after two years
of testing on over 500 women (with further trials continuing until 2019)
is certainly a good sign.

But we guess we'll wait-and-see too.
