When preparing for a breast augmentation procedure, you’ll choose between silicone and saline breast implants, each of which comes along with its own benefits. Making an informed decision is key for getting the results you desire.

Silicone breast implants are generally said to feel more akin to natural breast tissue and are typically the preferred choice for those looking for the most natural appearance.

Saline breast implants feature the benefit of being fillable during the breast augmentation procedure. This is the best way for the plastic surgeon to most closely match your aesthetic goals. Because they can be inserted empty, your plastic surgeon may also have more incision options than with silicone implants.
