All types of breast implants used a shell made up of silicone material. This shell is not hard like a typical shell structure; in fact, it provides a smooth and soft texture to your breast.

Silicone implants prove to be the realistic approach where on the other hand saline implants also give a mild look to the breast. Silicone implants have silicone gel which is a thick cohesive gel and ultimately provides a volume to your breast and gives it a naturally heavy look.
