Discussion on Breast Augmentation & The New Saline IDEAL Implant
We had the great pleasure of introducing Dr. Bob Hamas to a select group of women for a luncheon held at the Houston Country Club.
The purpose of the luncheon was to discuss the newly released Ideal Breast Implant. Dr. Hamas, a Dallas plastic surgeon, has been working for over 10 years on the design and production of this new saline filled breast implant.
The beauty of this implant option is that the Ideal Breast Implant has a more natural feel than the traditional saline filled implant. Dr. Hamas is a strong advocate for the benefit of ‘no silent rupture’ – meaning when the shell of the breast prosthesis eventually wears out, a woman knows right away with a saline implant, and does not have to wait for her annual mammogram to be alerted to the issue.
The format was informal with plenty of questions and opportunities to touch the Ideal Implant and compare the feel to a silicone filled implant. The breast implant was actually developed in Houston Texas – by two Houston plastic surgeons! The original breast implant was filled with silicone, and then an additional saline filled implant was introduced.
Dr. Baldwin was chosen by Dr. Hamas to be involved in the first clinical trials. The Ideal Implant was FDA approved as an option for all women in September, 2015. Dr. Baldwin has patients who have had this new implant for over 5 years with no issues or regrets.
The luncheon was a wonderful educational event for friends, patients and potential patients.
