When it comes to breast implants, your choices are saline and silicone. Deciding whether to opt for either saline or silicone implants is a decision that will be made collaboratively between you and Dr. Rouchdi Rifai, our board-certified cosmetic surgeon.
The most significant difference between saline and silicone implants is the material with which they are filled. Saline implants are filled with sterile salt water and silicone implants are filled with silicone gel. Many people think that silicone implants look and feel more natural – but each woman ultimately has her own unique opinion on this.
Benefits of Silicone Implants:
- They have a very natural look and feel.
- They are not quite as prone to wrinkling or rippling as saline implants are.
- They do not lose their shape or deflate in case of rupture.
