Until now, women only had two choices of breast implant. They could get silicone implants that would give them natural-looking results but they would worry about "silent rupture." Or they could get saline implants that would give them peace of mind but they would worry about wrinkling and an unnatural feel. But now there's a beautiful third choice: the structured implant (IDEAL Implant).
The new IDEAL Implant gives you the natural feel of silicone and the safety and peace of mind of saline
The IDEAL Implant is a completely different kind of breast implant. Combining the natural feel of silicone with the safety and peace of mind of saline, this revolutionary new implant is filled with saline but has a patented structure built in.
Created by a plastic surgeon and thoroughly FDA-approved, the IDEAL Implant uses the most advanced technology to bring you a realistic, youthful look and feel without the drawbacks that concern women most—unnatural feel and silent rupture.

Here in my practice, my patients love the new IDEAL Implant
Today's breast implant patients are happy that they no longer have to choose between a beautiful, natural look and the confidence of knowing their implants will stay intact. I am happy, too, that I can help them achieve the breast size they desire in a safe, highly effective way.
For many women, breast implants help them feel sexier, younger and more feminine. For others, breast implants correct breasts that don't match, breasts that never developed, the absence of breasts after surgery, or some other issue. But for all of these women, breast implant surgery (either with silicone, saline or the IDEAL Implant) can be a wonderful turning point in their lives, boosting their self-esteem and enabling them to have a positive body image, sometimes for the first time.
Structured vs. saline implants
Saline is a safe, natural solution easily absorbed by the body in case of rupture. However, saline implants wrinkle and move like water balloons.
Structured vs. silicone gel implants
When intact, silicone gel implants are FDA-approved and safe. But when they rupture, the implants and gel need to be removed. These ruptures are silent and can only be detected by an MRI, so women with silicone gel implants should have an MRI scan every 2 years to make sure they haven't ruptured.
Revolutionary structured design
The unique design of the IDEAL Implant is what gives it a natural look and feel without using silicone gel. It has a series of implant shells nested together and two separate chambers that hold the saline. Plus, it uses an advanced internal structure to control movement of the saline and support the implant edges to reduce collapse and wrinkling.
Approved by the FDA and Health Canada in 2014, the IDEAL Implant has undergone 10 years of development, testing and refinement, including the clinical expertise of numerous plastic surgeons.
What is involved in breast augmentation surgery?
I perform breast augmentation procedures at the Surgical Specialty Center located in Harrison, NY. Each of the Center’s four operating rooms is fully equipped with state-of-the-art anesthesia (provided by a board certified anesthesiologist), emergency equipment and everything else I need to provide excellent care to each of my patients.
Breast augmentation surgery involves surgically inserting an implant filled with either silicone or saline (sterile saltwater) solution behind each breast. The most common site for the incision through which the implant will be inserted is in the crease just underneath the breast. It can also be performed around the areola. The incision is very small and inconspicuous in these locations.
Typically, a pocket is created for the implant behind the muscle between your breast and chest wall. Placing the implant behind the muscle creates a very natural appearance and makes it easier for you to obtain accurate mammograms in the future and reduces the risk of capsular contracture.
Seeing is believing

If you already have breast implants, please come see me
If it has been a few years (or more) since your breast augmentation surgery, it’s important to get them checked. I highly recommend doing this once a year. Please make an appointment to come in and see me so I can check for any problems.
Considering breast augmentation?
If you are thinking about having breast implant surgery, please contact me for a free consultation and I will send you additional information prior to your appointment. During our meeting, I will assess the current appearance of your breasts, your reasons for wanting surgery, and your expectations. Then together, we will decide if the IDEAL Implant would be the right choice for you, or another option. (NOTE: the IDEAL Implant is not eligible for my special pricing.)
