How do silicone and saline breast implants differ?
If you are considering breast augmentation, you’ll need to decide which type of implants to choose. There are two main options: saline breast implants and silicone breast implants. What’s the difference? Well, the saline variety are filled with sterile salt water, so if leakage occurs it is naturally expelled from your body. These implants provide a uniform shape with a firm look and feel. Silicone implants, on the other hand, are filled with silicone gel that feels more like natural breast tissue, but entails a bit more upkeep with regular doctor visits. Both types are FDA approved and come in a variety of shapes and sizes. It just depends on your personal preference.
