silicone-implantsAsk a million women and you’ll probably get the same answer from all of them: no one wants to look like they’ve had a breast augmentation. Even though cosmetic surgery has become a widely accepted part of popular culture, there is something appealing about looking like those full, perfect breasts have always been and will always be yours. Thankfully, in West Hollywood, breast augmentation patients have options – the only question is, which one is right for you?

Saline vs Silicone: What Are the Differences?

While it is true that most plastic surgeons, Dr. Bruno among them, believe silicone implants provide a more natural look and feel, the decision is ultimately a personal preference. There are a number of differences between the two, not just including appearance, which can assist you in your choice:

  • Both implant types actually have a silicone outer shell, but the saline implants are filled with a water based solution rather than silicone gel
  • Because of their composition, you can sometimes feel and even see rippling in saline implants, whereas silicone implants do not have this issue
  • Silicone implants have a softer feel than saline implants, which many believe feels more like natural breast tissue
  • Saline implants are less expensive than silicone and much easier to detect ruptures in

Some surgeons contend that you cannot tell the difference in saline and silicone implants by sight alone but all acknowledge there is a difference in feel. The deciding factor is really your personal opinion after weighing the facts of each. Whatever your leaning, Dr. Bruno is happy to discuss all of your options during your consultation to find the right fit for you.
