What gives you peace of mind in your day to day life? Knowing you have all your ducks in a row in case of emergencies can lower your stress and allow you to live in the moment. For women with breast implants, unexpected costs associated with complications may cause anxiety. Insurance companies typically do not cover costs related to cosmetic surgery, even if your surgery is medically necessary. How can you prepare yourself financially for these expenses? Dr. Constance Barone in San Antonio offers the new IDEAL IMPLANT® Premium Protection Plan to protect you from unexpected costs of breast implant complications. Dr. Barone is dedicated to providing her patients with the most up to date technologies for the best outcomes. She was recently named an IDEAL IMPLANT Premier Surgeon because of her experience using this new implant type.

Who Is At Risk For Breast Implant Complications?

Breast implant complications can happen to any woman with implants, whether they have saline, silicone-gel, or the IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implant. Revision surgery can be necessary after your breast augmentation due to complications such as implant rupture and capsular contracture. With the IDEAL IMPLANT Structured Breast Implant, you are at a statistically lower risk of these complications than with some of the top silicone gel implants. In FDA clinical trial data of primary augmentations over 8 years the IDEAL IMPLANT Structured Breast Implant showed a capsule contracture risk rate of 6.6% and a rupture risk rate of 2.1%. To compare, one of the top silicone gel implants, Allergan Gel, has a capsule contracture risk rate of 16.2% and a rupture risk rate of 7.4% in FDA clinical trial data over 8 years. Dr. Barone offers the IDEAL IMPLANT to her patients because she knows women want natural looking breast implants with a low risk of complications.

Why Do You Need Financial Protection?

While the risk of common complications is lower with the IDEAL IMPLANT Structured Breast Implant, it is not zero. A small percentage of women with these implants will still need a revision surgery in their lifetime. According to Realself.com user data, the average cost of a breast implant revision is $7,975. Many women find themselves caught off-guard by these costs, and wondering how to find the money for a revision surgery. With the IDEAL IMPLANT Premium Protection Plan women can find peace of mind that they will receive financial assistance if they encounter complications after a breast augmentation.

What Is Included In The IDEAL IMPLANT Premium Protection Plan?

When you get the IDEAL IMPLANT Structured Breast Implant for your breast enhancement, you are automatically enrolled in the basic protection plan at no cost. Included with this basic protection is $3,500 in financial assistance for implant deflation for 10 years, free implant replacement for 10 years due to capsular contracture, and free implant replacement for lifetime due to deflation. When you purchase the IDEAL IMPLANT Premium Protection Plan you get the following benefits:

  • Up to $10,000 in financial assistance during the first 60 days for complications such as bleeding, infection, blood clots and more.

  • Up to $5,000 in financial assistance for capsular contracture, deflation, insertional scar revision and events related to these.

  • FREE IDEAL IMPLANT® replacement for 10 years for capsular contracture, and FREE lifetime replacement for deflation.

These benefits are available for women getting the IDEAL IMPLANT for a primary breast augmentation, or those exchanging their existing implants. The Premium Protection Plan is only available through your board-certified plastic surgeon, and must be renewed each year to continue receiving premium benefits. Dr. Constance Barone offers the Premium Protection Plan to any patient receiving the IDEAL IMPLANT Structured Breast Implant.

How Much Does The Premium Protection Plan Cost?

Enrolling in the IDEAL IMPLANT Premium Protection Plan is an affordable investment for your peace of mind. Prior to your surgery your surgeon can enroll you for only $189 for a primary augmentation, and $249 for those exchanging existing breast implants. Yearly renewal costs only $79. This plan is available through Ironshore Insurance, a Liberty Mutual Company, which holds a AAA rating. Women with the IDEAL IMPLANT now have access to beautiful results, low rates of complications, and financial peace of mind.
