Breast implants are the most reliable method for women who want to achieve a fuller, more voluptuous appearance. Choosing the breast implant that best meets your aesthetic goals is one of the most important aspects of your breast augmentation surgery, and implants are the key to enhancing your figure to your coveted size and proportion. Respected and highly experienced cosmetic surgeon Dr. David Liland can determine which breast implants are right for you during a consultation at his Dallas, TX, practice.
Which Material: Silicone or Saline?
Breast implants consist of outer silicone shells that contain one of two materials: silicone, which is pre-filled, or saline, which is inserted after the prosthesis is placed inside the body. Whether you go with saline or silicone implants will depend on a few key considerations and how they align with your personal preferences.

Generally speaking, women who choose saline implants want an implant placement process that allows for smaller incisions and simpler aftercare. Women who are concerned about the long-term safety of their implants typically choose saline. In the rare case that your implant leaks or ruptures, your body can naturally absorb the saline that spills from the implant.
On the other hand, silicone is the implant of choice for women seeking a supremely realistic texture and shape. Patients can have peace of mind in knowing that improvements to silicone implant fabrication in recent years have minimized the incidence of implants compromised by tears and leaks, making them safer than ever.
