Breast augmentation is the most popular surgical procedure to date, and with good reason. This breast procedure can do wonders for a woman’s confidence, creating a more proportionate body silhouette and helping clothing to fit better. When thinking about breast augmentation surgery there are many things to take into consideration, including the type of breast implant. Read on for a breakdown on the two most popular implants used today: saline and silicone.

Saline Implants

Saline has been used to enhance the breasts since the 1940s, and saline implants are still very popular today. These implants are available to women over the age of 18, and are filled with a sterile saltwater solution. These implants are filled after they are placed into the breast pocket, so a smaller incision is often possible. However, implant rippling is more common with saline implants.

Silicone Implants

The first silicone implant was created in 1961 and they are now used throughout the world. These implants are filled with a silicone gel, and offer the feeling of natural breast tissue. Because silicone implants are pre-filled, a larger incision may be required to place them. However, silicone implants are much safer than they used to be, and are the most commonly used implant today. Women must be 22 years or older to receive silicone breast implants.

There are pros and cons associated with each type of implant, and the type that is right for you will depend on your individual anatomy and desired breast surgery goals.
