Unfortunately, not all women are blessed with an ideal breast shape and size.

The science behind a typical saline breast implants procedure is simple. In this procedure, saline filled breast implants are placed inside the breast. Saline-filled breast implants contain a silicone outer shell filled with a sterile saltwater (saline) solution. Some saline implants are pre-filled and some are filled during the procedure as per the needs of the patient.

You need not worry about the pain because the surgery will be performed under anesthesia. There is some downtime involved and you will have to take proper rest until the treatment area complete gets healed. The downtime associated with the procedure might seem a problem but do not fret, you will get well soon and say hello to the world again with a new look.


The implants are filled with a sterile saltwater solution similar to the fluid that makes up most of the human body. The texture of a saline implant is very similar to the texture of normal bodily tissue. This property of saline implant gives a sense of belongingness with the person. The surgeon just needs to make a slight incision to place saline implants. It provides a little firmer feel than gel-filled implants. Moreover, it has a flexible volume which can be adjusted during the procedure.

When can I get back to my exercise routine?

You will be able to start walking slowly one week after the treatment. Then you will be able to start more aerobic activities if you feel comfortable. To do a little more strenuous work, you will wait till 2 weeks. The healing process might become long if implants are placed under the muscle.

How long will it take me to recover from my breast augmentation surgery?

The recovery period varies depending upon the placement of the implant in the breast. If the implant is placed over the muscle, the recovering period will be short. If the implant is placed over the muscle, the recovery period will increase by one or more days.

Should I be concerned about the brand of implant my plastic surgeon uses?

At the moment, there are only a few FDA approved breast implant manufacturer companies. All of these FDA approved breast implant manufacturers are making quality products that are tested for years to perfection. Therefore, the brand does not matter in general.

How do I know if I should have my implants placed over or under the muscle?

It is a very important topic. If you look forward to having saline implants, you have a small amount of natural breast tissue or a strong family history of breast cancer; choose submuscular (under the muscle). If you want silicone implants, have a large amount of natural tissue with saline implants or require a breast lift; go for subglandular (over the muscle) placement.
