What is the difference between the two types of breast implants, silicone respectively saline-filled? What are the advantages and disadvantages of each? And which one is safer?
Saline-filled implants are silicone supports containing sterile salt water (saline) while the silicone breast implants are filled with a plastic gel. Over the years, women who have undergone breast augmentation surgery claimed that silicone implants feel more natural than saline, however, specialists say that they pose a greater risk if they break and leak. In the case of saline-filled breast implants leakage, the saline water is quickly absorbed within the body, being harmless, and quickly visible in a few hours. In exchange, silicone leakage cannot be obvious immediately as the thicker consistency of the gel leaks slower. Nevertheless, the new silicone gel fill implants do not leak if punctured and show to be nontoxic.
There are benefits and drawbacks in both silicone and saline fill implants; but the most important is the specialist who performs the surgery and Renew Skin & Health Clinic prides itself with the best surgeons and specialists.
