Breast implant surgery in West Palm Beach can be a great way for a woman to enhance her figure and get the curves she has always wanted. If you have decided to get them, you have made only one of many important decisions. You will need to determine the size that will work best for you. Additionally, you will need to decide if you want silicone or saline breast implants. Each option has its own pros and cons, and ultimately it is up to you to decide what is best to fit your needs.
Silicone breast implants have been around for a long time. Medical and technological advances have made them safer than ever. Women love them because they can give you impressive and naturalistic cleavage. They also have less of a chance of rippling or wrinkling than saline implants. Many women believe that silicone implants have a more natural feel than the other option. There is a particular caveat with silicone implants, however. If one becomes ruptured, you may not immediately know it. This is why follow-up appointments are necessary to ensure this hasn’t happened.
Saline implants still use silicone for the outer shell. Inside this shell is a sterile saline solution. The shell can either be filled when the breast implant is placed or it can be pre-filled. This depends on a number of factors and is something that is discussed at a consultation.
How to Choose: Silicone or Saline
On top of the things mentioned above, there are some other factors to keep in mind when deciding which type of breast implant is right for you. If you are not wanting to increase the size of your breasts too dramatically, you can likely go with either option. Women with smaller breasts who want to jump up many cup sizes are generally better off with silicone. This is simply because silicone is less likely to ripple and will look more natural.
