Factors Influencing Your Choice of Breast Implant
Certain factors will influence your decision as you choose a type of breast implant. These factors typically include:
- What the breast implant will look like
- What the breast implant will feel like
- Your expectations of cost
We will discuss these things and others with you. You can also view our before-and-after gallery of breast augmentation with saline implants and breast augmentation with silicone implants, to help you get an idea of the results each type provides.
Saline vs. Silicone Breast Implants
Each type of breast implant has its own advantages. Generally, silicone gel implants provide the most natural look and feel. This naturalness is because of the silicone gel used to fill the implant. The gel mimics real human fat in consistency and appearance. For this reason, many women choose silicone implants. The gel inside the implant also maintains its shape, so it the implant shell breaks, the gel tends to mostly maintain its shape, so your breast should not look distorted.
With saline breast implants, the sterile saltwater solution inside the implant will leak out in the event of rupture, but the liquid is completely safe and highly similar to fluid already inside your body naturally. Some women prefer the look, feel and other features of saline breast implants.
The fact is, both breast implants are capable of providing beautiful, long-lasting breast enlargement results. You won't have to make the decision on your own. Our plastic surgeons will be able to recommend a type of implant and help you weigh the various pros and cons of each.
