New Breast Implant Safety Statistics: Dr. Babbitt Discusses The Best Breast Implants

December 10, 2018

New Breast Implant Safety Statistics Now Available

The newest breast implant technology, IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implant, has released new data from its FDA core clinical trial at 8 years. This new data shows a low rate of rupture and capsular contracture, two of the top breast implant complications. In addition, IDEAL IMPLANT has reported growing demand across the United States and Canada. Dr. Russell Babbitt has noticed this same trend with women choosing the best breast implants at his Fall River plastic surgery practice. After learning the benefits and compromises of every implant type patients are overwhelmingly choosing the IDEAL IMPLANT Structured Breast Implant.


New Rupture Rate Statistics

Breast implant rupture can be a serious issue for women. The FDA recommends surgery to remove and replace a ruptured implant, which can be expensive and force women to take time away from work and home. Picking a breast implant with a low rate of rupture will give women a reduced risk of needing revision surgery. In the newly released breast implant safety statistics, IDEAL IMPLANT Structured Breast Implants show a 2.1% rupture risk at 8 years after a primary breast augmentation. This number is incredibly low, especially considering the top silicone gel breast implants have rupture risks as high as 13.6% (Mentor, 8-year FDA trial data).

Additionally, IDEAL IMPLANT Structured Breast Implants are filled with saline, which is naturally absorbed by the body if a rupture occurs. Silicone gel breast implants are filled with silicone gel, which is not absorbed by the body and can rupture without the patient knowing. A “silent rupture” can only be detected with an MRI, which the FDA recommends women get every 3 years for the life of the implant. Now, with the IDEAL IMPLANT Structured Breast Implant, women can enjoy a low rupture rate, no anxiety about the status of their implant, and no need for repeated MRIs. Dr. Babbitt tells us, “It is in my mind the best of both worlds, because it has the shape and the feel and the projection that you associate with a silicone gel implant, and the peace of mind that you associate with a saline implant.”


New Capsular Contracture Statistics

Capsular contracture is a breast implant complication that causes scar tissue to form around a breast implant. If the scar tissue begins to tighten it can become firm, displace the breast implant, and cause pain. There are grades of capsular contracture, known as Baker Grades I-IV, with Baker I being least severe and Baker IV the most severe. Revision surgery is typically recommended for women with Baker III and IV. In the new breast implant safety statistics, IDEAL IMPLANT Structured Breast Implants show a low rate of Baker grades III and IV capsular contracture. At 8 years after a primary augmentation, the rate is only 6.6%. In the top silicone gel breast implants the risk of capsular contracture is as high as 16.2% (Allergan, 7 year FDA trial data). Protecting yourself from a painful complication like capsular contracture starts with choosing the right breast implant for you.
