Saline Breast Implants: A Look at the Profiles, Textures and Shapes

Choosing between saline and silicone breast implants may be one of the harder decisions you’ll have to make on your breast augmentation journey. Here are a few basic facts about saline implants that may help you make your decision:

  • Saline implants are made of a silicone shell that is filled during surgery with sterile salt water until your desired size is achieved.
  • Because they're filled at the time of surgery, saline implants require a smaller incision than silicone implants.
  • The variety of size is viewed by many as one of the chief benefits of choosing a saline-filled implant.
  • In the event of a rupture, the natural saline solution will be absorbed by the body without any negative side effects.
  • Saline-filled implants are available in a wide variety of profiles, shell textures and shapes.
  • You can get both the natural and fake look with saline implants.
