Saline Breast Enlargement Facts: How Do Silicone and Saline Implants Compare?

If you are thinking of getting breast augmentation, there are several decisions you will need to make, including the type of implant to be inserted. Saline implants and silicone implants are the two main types of breast implants (sometimes referred to by patients as “boob implants”) used in breast augmentation. Both types of implants have an outer silicone shell, but there are some major differences between them.

Unlike silicone implants, which contain a silicone gel filling, saline implants are filled with sterile saltwater and typically placed in the breast pocket empty, then filled to the desired volume. Many patients think that silicone implants have a look and feel that is more similar to actual breasts. However, some people prefer the firmer and fuller appearance they believe saline implants can provide.

Not to be confused with standard saline implants, saline breast injections—also referred to by some as a “24-Hour Boob Job”—have become a popular trend for non-surgical breast augmentation. These involve injections of saline directly into breast tissue, causing the tissue to temporarily expand. Parkins Plastic Surgery does not offer this type of breast augmentation for safety reasons, and it’s important to be aware of the potential risks associated with that type of procedure. We recommend always choosing safe implants or fat transfer from an experienced and reputable plastic surgeon.

Regardless of which type of implants you decide on, we will work with you to help you avoid looking as if you have fake breasts and provide the most subtle, natural breast enhancement appearance possible from silicone or saline implants.

What Are the Advantages of Saline Implants?

The sizes of saline implants are adjustable, making it easy to personalize the outcome based on your unique goals or expectations. Although the basic size is pre-determined, requiring a relatively small incision, saline solution can be progressively added to the empty shells after they have been inserted. Another benefit of saline implants is that any ruptures are noticeable very quickly.

When it comes to cost—which some people consider to be “boob job prices”—general figures are available on our site. If you are searching for “Prices of Breast Implants Near Me” and want more advice about the cost of a “boob job,” “boob job” recovery, or breast augmentation before-and-after tips, our team can explain everything you need to know—and provide a personalized quote—at a private consultation.

Which Procedures Are Available Aside from Breast Augmentation with Saline Implants?

Breast augmentation with silicone implants or saline implants is one option for enhancing the breasts, but there are also other types of cosmetic surgery for the breasts at Parkins Plastic surgery. Options include breast lift, breast reduction, fat transfer breast augmentation, combined breast lift with augmentation, and more. For those who wish to enhance other areas of the body, a tummy tuck focuses on the midsection and can be ideal for addressing loose skin or excess fat on this area, while liposuction is the go-to choice for providing slimmer, more balanced contours by removing resistant fat from isolated spots.
