The IDEAL IMPLANT®: Breast Implants Using Today’s Technology

Breast Surgery with Dr. Ringler

Women deserve a breast implant option that combines the safety they need with the beauty they desire. For many years, silicone gel or saline implants dominated the plastic surgery industry. These options forced women to choose between the realistic look that comes with silicone gel breast implants, and the peace of mind of saline. But now, a technology-driven “structured implant” is available that provides all the advantages, without the drawbacks, of either silicone gel or saline. IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implants, offered by Dr. Steven Ringler, utilize the latest in implant technology to offer a unique, new implant option.

Considering Plastic Surgery?

Undergoing plastic surgery is a big, life-changing decision. Dr. Ringler wants his patients to walk away from their breast augmentation experience feeling better about themselves with greater confidence in their appearance. He works hard to stay up-to-date on safe, proven products and techniques to provide the best patient care possible. In the video below, learn why women feel plastic surgery improves their wellbeing.

Dr. Ringler Values Patient Education

Dr. Ringler is a board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, and an IDEAL IMPLANT Premier Surgeon. He is dedicated to empowering women by offering choices that help them accomplish their goals. Dr. Ringler takes the time necessary to educate his patients, answer their questions, and address any concerns they might have about plastic surgery. He says:

“We have a beautiful facility, very private, with a great team of employees and staff to help patients make decisions about what’s best for them. My patients are happy. They’re treated with respect. We’re good at listening and learning what patient’s goals and expectations are, and trying to meet those with procedures and treatments we have to offer … I think it’s really important, as a physician, to educate the patient. That’s part of the informed consent process. I think patients need to understand what their options are. It’s their body. They need to make the decision.”

Want Breast Implants?

Receiving breast implants is a popular plastic surgery choice. The IDEAL IMPLANT is different than any other previous type of implant. As a “structured implant,” it is made up of a series of shells nested together that hold two separate chambers filled with saline. This advanced internal structure:

  • Provides a natural feel and realistic look women expect from silicone gel breast implants
  • Gives the safety and security of saline
  • Creates a youthful shape, volume, and projection
  • Supports the upper pole of the implant to eliminate the “water-bed” effect
  • Reduces wrinkling, rippling, and folding
  • Allows plastic surgeons to adjust the volume of the implant to cater to the exact requests of their patients
  • Requires a smaller incision than with silicone gel implants

“Silent Rupture” with Silicone Gel Breast Implants

The unique design of the IDEAL IMPLANT allows women to always know their implants are intact by simply looking in the mirror. No MRI scans are needed to detect an issue with the IDEAL IMPLANT. With silicone gel implants, a “silent rupture” can occur. The FDA advises women with silicone gel implants receive an MRI scan every two to three years to detect such a problem. Otherwise, sticky silicone gel can unknowingly leak into the surrounding tissues of a woman’s body.

The IDEAL IMPLANT carries no risk of “silent rupture,” allowing women to enjoy their breast implants instead of worry about them. As an FDA-approved implant, it is made from time-tested materials in an FDA-inspected facility using advanced robotics to achieve greater consistency and ensure high-quality standards. Dr. Ringler thinks the IDEAL IMPLANT is a valuable asset to the plastic surgery industry:

“As soon as the IDEAL IMPLANT became available, I began using the product. I know, for me, it’s been a great advancement because it’s really been the best design change that I’ve seen in implants through my entire career.”

The IDEAL IMPLANT®: Breast Implants Using Today’s Technology

All breast implants are not created equal. Silicone gel implants are known for their realistic look and feel, but come with the risk of “silent rupture.” Saline implants offer safety and security, but when filled incorrectly may lack the natural feel of breast tissue. For many years, women were forced to choose between the peace of mind that comes with saline and the beauty of silicone gel. Now, women no longer have to compromise. A new, innovative implant is available—IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implants offered by Dr. Steven Ringler.

The Latest in Implant Technology

The IDEAL IMPLANT is a technology-driven implant option that was developed to meet the needs of women. Due to its advanced internal structure, the IDEAL IMPLANT has the benefits, without the compromises, of both silicone gel and saline breast implants. It is made up of a series of shells nested together that hold two separate chambers filled with saline. This unique design:

  • Provides a realistic look, natural feel, and youthful shape
  • Supports the upper pole of the implant to prevent collapse when upright
  • Reduces the wrinkling, rippling, and folding that may be associated with saline implants
  • Controls the movement of the saline to mitigate sloshing and eliminate the “water-bed” effect

“Silent Rupture” and MRI Scans

Unlike silicone gel breast implants, The IDEAL IMPLANT has no risk of “silent rupture,” and therefore requires no MRI scans to detect such an issue.  A woman can always verify her IDEAL IMPLANTS are intact by simply looking in the mirror. A “silent rupture” occurs when a silicone gel implant begins to leak sticky silicone gel into the surrounding tissue of a woman’s body without her knowledge. Watch our video to learn more about “silent rupture.”

IDEAL IMPLANT Structured Breast Implants with Dr. Ringler

IDEAL-IMPLANT-PREMIER-SURGEONThe IDEAL IMPLANT is only available to plastic surgeons who are board-certified or eligible for certification by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. Dr. Steven Ringler is an IDEAL IMPLANT Premier Surgeon, and is dedicated to offering women  implant options that help them achieve their goals. He explains the advantages of the IDEAL IMPLANT:

“I like the safety of saline over silicone gel. I don’t think that women are going to get MRI’s to monitor their silicone gel implants. I’ve taken out hundreds of ruptured silicone gel implants during my career. It’s a big operation. If I never see another silicone gel implant related problem, I’d be very happy. With a saline implant, if it leaks, it’s a very easy thing to change. There’s  minimal downtime, and is a minimal inconvenience to the patient. They’re not subject to monitoring. If the patient comes in for an exam,or if they look at themselves in the mirror, they can tell if their implant is leaking. I do think that the double lumen of the IDEAL IMPLANT is nice because it’s never going to totally deflate. Patients don’t have to worry about that, and that seems to be reassuring to some patients. As I use the IDEAL IMPLANT, I like the results I’ve been achieving, and the fact that they feel natural. I can’t tell the difference between the IDEAL IMPLANT and a silicone gel implant when I examine a patient. I have to look at their chart to know what implant they have.”

Personalized Care and Patient Education

Dr. Ringler takes the time to get to know his patients and create customized treatment plans. He wants women to feel confident and secure in their decision to pursue breast implants. He states:

“If someone comes in asking for silicone gel, and I think their physical dimensions are a good fit for the IDEAL IMPLANT, then I tell them why I think the IDEAL IMPLANT is a good option. I let them feel the implant. I show them the differences between silicone gel and the IDEAL IMPLANT. Even the same size IDEAL IMPLANT sitting next to a silicone gel implant has a different shape. I explain to them why I think the shape is better, and then I show them clinical photos of patients with standard implants and IDEAL IMPLANTS. The uniform response is,”‘I like the IDEAL IMPLANT results better. Those look better.’”
