This 39-year-old woman bore 3 children by C-section. Years after her final pregnancy she still felt that she looked pregnant with loose skin and stretched out abdominal muscles. She also was never happy with her breast size but they got much smaller after pregnancy and she desired to go from a B cup to a DD. She also wished to have saline implants however with the size desired it was recommended that the Ideal implant might be her best choice. Ideal implants, also known as structured implants are saline devices with an internal structure which reduces rippling and palpability but has the benefit of immediate detection of implant leakage since they are saline.
The patient underwent abdominoplasty with some liposuction of her flanks and diastases repair. She underwent bilateral breast augmentation with 475 cc Ideal breast implants. She was very happy with the results and felt she could now go to the beach with bathing suits without being self-conscious.
Ideal implants have had a brief period of discontinuation but are going to be available again in September 2020. They are fully warranted and have the advantage over standard saline implants of being more natural feeling.
