Here’s a rundown of silicone vs. saline breast implant benefits and a few quick tips on how to pick the right one for you.

Pros of Silicone

The majority of women who get implants choose silicone, mainly because this gel-like substance looks, feels and moves much like natural breast tissue. Another benefit is that these implants don’t usually create a rippled effect, making them a good choice for anyone who may be in the itty bitty titty club before their boob job.

Worried about safety? Silicone implants are the single most widely studied medical device, so try that on for size!

Pros of Saline

While saline isn’t as popular as silicone, it still has its merits and plenty of women go this route. Saline implants contain a sterile saline solution, so if they were to rupture, you would know about it. With silicone implants, you’ll need an MRI to detect ruptures.

Saline can have a tendency to ripple if you don’t have much breast tissue covering them up. But one way around this is to place your implants beneath your chest muscle.

How to Choose

Still having trouble deciding which could be right for you? Honestly, your best bet is to sit down with a board-certified plastic surgeon to discuss the deets. Ultimately, the decision will come down to your personal preferences.
