Saline Vs. Silicone Breast Implants

Breast augmentation surgery can be an exciting and confidence boosting procedure, but it can also be overwhelming. There are many decisions that will need to be made before surgery. Although your plastic surgeon will make recommendations and guide you, those decisions are still yours. One of the major questions related to breast augmentation is deciding between saline and silicone breast implants. What’s the difference? How do they feel? Which is best for you? Read on to learn about the differences and advantages of each type of breast implant.

Silicone Breast Implants

Silicone implants are FDA-approved for women over the age of 22. Silicone is a thick fluid substance that feels like fat tissue. Silicone breast implants are are very commonly used for women who want a more natural feeling breast.

These implants give patients predictable results because they have a set fill volume, giving a uniform shape and size. They also have two shell surface options and three profiles for women to choose from. This means that women can have a natural feeling breasts with very predictable result.

Saline Breast Implants

Saline implants are FDA-approved for women over the age of 18. Saline is actually just sterile salt water. These implants are slightly firmer than the silicone breast implants, so many women say they don’t feel as natural. The major benefit of saline breast implants is that they are put in empty, then filled to size once they are in place. In some instances, implants can be resized after surgery. These implants are commonly used with the transaxillary (in the armpit) incision, which results in no visible scars on the chest/breast area. Saline implants also have two shell surface options and three profiles, similar to silicone.
