Breast Implants Syracuse

There are a number of differences between saline and silicone breast implants, which Dr. DeRoberts will explain thoroughly to you during your consultation. A brief summary of the pros and cons of both types of breast implants follows:

Silicone Gel Breast Implants

Advantages

  • Silicone gel implants feel more like natural breast tissue
  • Silicone implants are less likely to cause the skin around the breast to ripple
  • Silicone gel implants are available in a variety of sizes, profiles, and textures
  • Lifetime replacement guarantee from the manufacturer

Disadvantages

  • Because silicone breast implants are pre-filled, the incision may be slightly longer to allow for insertion of the implant
  • Silicone implants are more expensive to purchase than Saline implants
  • Silicone implants do not deflate, so it may be harder to tell if a Silicone implant shell has ruptured

Saline Breast Implants

Advantages

  • Saline breast implants are filled after they are inserted so the incision may be slightly shorter than a silicone implant
  • If a saline implant ruptures, the saline (salt water) filling is safely absorbed by the body
  • Saline implants are available in a variety of sizes, profiles, and textures

Disadvantages

  • Saline implants are not as soft or natural-feeling as silicone gel implants
  • Saline breast implants are more likely to cause the skin to ripple around the breast
