Gone are the days when women had no choice but to live with the body they were born with. In this rapidly changing world, women have infinite possibilities. Whether it is the matter of mind, body, or soul, we have many options to choose from. The same holds true for a breast augmentation surgery. A breast augmentation surgery takes many forms. The most famous breast form of breast augmentation consists of a certain kind of breast implant. This implant can be made of saline or silicone.

Saline Implants vs. Silicone Implants

The most important question that comes into our mind about a breast implant surgery is what kind of implant is the best. It is not easy to answer this question in one line. There is much more to consider while selecting a breast implant surgery. Considering the current situation of your breasts and the goals in your mind, a saline implant might be suitable for you. Similarly, you might need a silicone implant if you are a perfect match for it.

In this part of the article, we are going to discuss the pros and cons of saline and silicone implants. As their names suggest, a saline implant is made of a salt water; whereas, a silicon implant is made of silicone gel. A saline implant is made of salt water that feels like a real breast. A silicone implant is made of a silicone that also gives a sense of a real fat.

Distinguishing Features of Silicone & Saline Implants

  • Age Factor: The patient needs to be more than 18 years to have a saline implant. One the other hand, in order to have a silicone implant, the patient needs to be more than 22 years.
  • Implant’s Outer Shell: A saline implant consists of an outer shell containing saline water. A silicone implant also has an outer shell that is filled with silicone gel.
  • Sense Factor: A silicone implant gives almost the same sense of a real breast. On the other hand, a saline breast gives a round shape to the breast.
  • The Point of Incision: The silicone gel implants can be placed by making an incision under the breast, or on the dark skin around the nipple. The saline implants can be placed by making incisions under the breast or in the armpit.
  • Cost Factor: Silicone implants cost a little more than saline implants. Due to this reason, the cost of breast augmentation depends on the type of implants you have.
  • The Weight of Implant: Silicone implant is lighter than the saline implant and it involves lower risk of downward displacement.
  • The Complexity of Procedure: Placing silicone implants is more complex than saline implants because they are prefilled and require a large incision to enter the breast. Placing saline implants is relatively easy and requires small incision because they are filled after placing into the breast.
  • Wrinkles Problem: Unlike saline implants, a silicone implant is less likely to exhibit wrinkles. Based on the distinguishing features we have just discussed, silicone implant is preferred.
