The 4 Main Implants You Need to Know
1. Saline breast implants.
Saline implants consist of a silicone shell that’s filled with saline water. This implant can be placed within the breast as is, or the deflated implant can be placed under the breast tissue and then filled with a saline solution. While a saline implant may not be as strong as a silicone implant, it’s easy to tell when you have a leak, as the implant will harmlessly collapse.
2. Silicone breast implants.
Silicone breast implants are comprised of a silicone outer shell that contains a silicone solution. Silicone breast implants feel more like a natural breast; however, because it can be tough to tell if your implant has been ruptured, you’ll need to schedule regular MRI treatments to check in on the health and structure of your implants.
