Breast implants are delivered in different forms depending on the unique preferences of the patient. There are several different types of implants that vary by application and effects, but they provide the same benefits to each patient.
Saline implants are composed of silicone and have a shell filled with saltwater solution. These can be pre-filled or filled during the operation. They are approved by the FDA and have a firmer feel than those filled with gel. The volume of fill in the implants can be adjusted during the procedure. They can be provided in smooth or textured form.
Saline breast implants are safe, but they may leak or become hardened. It is important to check for any problems with follow-up appointments after a surgery.
Silicone breast implants are FDA approved and have a silicone shell filled with cohesive gel. They can be provided in a number of shapes, volumes, and textures. Their texture is similar to breast tissue, providing a more natural look and feel compared to saline implants. The cohesive gel can reduce the risk of silicone rupture.Schedule Your Consultation Online
