Home Breast Enhancements Which Breast Implant Is Best for My Body?

December 2, 2016

Choosing between saline and silicone implants can be confusing. Being informed on the details and differences between the two will help you decide which option is best for you.

Saline implants are made from a saltwater solution injected into a silicone breast implant casing. Silicone implants also use these casings and are filled with a cohesive silicone gel that is self-binding. Both implants are equally safe.

Because saline implants are filled with liquid, their shape is altered by gravity and outside forces. Silicone implants are more solid, allowing the implant to retain its shape and contours. Silicone implants are often praised for achieving a more natural look and feel.
