SALINE BREAST IMPLANTS
Saline implants are made of a silicone shell filled with saline, or salt water. Saline implants come in a variety of sizes, which are filled after they are placed within the breasts. Because they are filled after they are inserted, Dr Ali Izadpanah is able to adjust their size slightly by adding or removing saline to create precise symmetry between both of your breasts.
Saline implants can be placed through a variety of incisions because their deflated shells can be folded and moved through a small space. This type of implant can be placed through incisions at the bottom of the breasts where they meet the ribs, around the nipples, or under the armpits.
In the rare case that a silicone implant should rupture, the solution is completely harmless to your body. Saline water is absorbed into your body, and the shell will need to be surgically removed and replaced.
SILICONE BREAST IMPLANTS
Silicone breast implants are made from a silicone shell filled with viscous silicone gel. Silicone implants come pre-filled in a wide range of different sizes and projections. Silicone implants can be teardrop-shaped, in addition to round. Many patients find that silicone implants have the most natural look and feel because the material mimics breast tissue. However, you can achieve great, natural-looking results with either type of implant.
Because they come pre-filled, silicone implants must be placed using a larger incision than saline implants. In the case that a silicone implant ruptures, it is more difficult to detect so they require periodic monitoring. While silicone generally stays coagulated, there is a risk that it can spread within the breast tissue and must be surgically removed.
