Saline Vs. Silicone: Choosing The Right Implant For You

Breast augmentation has been around for many years. Advancements in medicine and technology have made breast augmentation a safe and widely accepted procedure.Breast augmentation is a highly customizable experience that allows you to make some key decisions regarding your procedure. These decisions play a huge role in what your results will look like. One of the biggest decisions you will need to make is whether you want saline or silicone implants.

Saline Vs. Silicone

Both of these types of implants offer great advantages and benefits to the patient. But there are some differences in one another that you should take into consideration when deciding which one is the right fit for you.

Saline Implants

Saline implants consist of a silicone shell that is filled with a sterile salt-water solution to achieve the results that you desire. A major benefit of saline implants is that the salt-water solution that the implant is filled with is close to the composition of human body fluids, meaning it is not toxic.

Saline implants also require a smaller incision than silicone implants, but they are not recommended for people with smaller frames or very little natural breast tissue.

Silicone Implants

Silicone implants are made of a highly-cohesive gel that very closely resembles the natural look and feel of natural breast tissue. This is one of the main advantages of silicone implants.

Silicone implants require a larger incision site and feel more firm to the touch, but they replicate the form of natural breasts very well because they have a “teardrop” shape.
