Choosing A Breast Augmentation Incision

Types of Breast Implants

There are two most popular types of breast implants: Saline and Silicone. You and the surgeon will discuss which implant is right for you and the overall look you’re going for after your healing.

Breast Augmentation: Saline Implants

Saline breast implants are filled with a sterile saltwater solution and offer no risk to the patient in terms of extracapsular spread or silicone leakage. Saline implants are appealing to many because they generally cost less than silicone implants. In some patients, silicone may be a better option due to the rippling that may occur along the edges of the implant that can be visible in thinner women. Read more about saline implants.

Breast Augmentation: Silicone Implants

Silicone implants are filled with a gel-like substance that feels like natural breast tissue. They’re ideal for thin or physically active women. These implants are designed that if they were to break or leak- the silicone gel interior will remain intact within the implant. Silicone implant defects are rare- but can be detected through MRI- unlike saline implants which will deflate upon rupture. Read more about silicone implants.
