Women who want to increase their size dramatically should understand that large or heavy implants could cause back problems later in life. Our goal is to give you subtle enhancements that work with your size and body type.

Comparing saline and silicone breast implants

Saline implants have an outer shell made from medical-grade silicone. They are filled with a sterile saltwater solution that is safely absorbed and expelled by the body in case of a rupture. Saline breast implants are filled during surgery, which means patients only need a small incision that results in less scar tissue. This option is great for women who want precise results from their procedure.

Silicone breast implants also have an outer silicone shell. These natural-looking breast implants also closely resemble the feel of your own breast tissue. This makes silicone a great option for women who have generally small breasts. Patients who choose silicone should have their implants examined regularly with MRI imaging to make sure there are no ruptures or leaks over time.

Choosing your best implant option

When it comes to saline breast implants or silicone, the best decision is based on your individual preferences and goals. Patients should also accept the pros and cons that come with each implant. During your appointment, Dr. Corbin can discuss implant materials as well as size, shape, and location. Our goal is to provide you with outcomes you love for years to come.
