I have saliene implants and am going for the 5th revision surgery due to deflation. Would silicone implants be more durable?

In my opinion, I always recommend silicone instead of saline. I believe that they're much reliable and look and feel more natural.
5th Breast Augmentation Revision Needed because of Deflation of Saline Implant.
1.It is very life like when compared to the silicone implant and the unnatural saline implant.
2.In the event of a rare rupture, the silicone does not leak into the patients tissue with the high tension gel implant.
3.Some studies indicate that the possible scarring, that can occur, around the new implant is markedly reduced.
So my recommendations would be to find a experienced Board Certified Plastic Surgeon to perform the procedure and seriously consider the High Tension Gel Implant(Sientra). I have been using them for the past year and don't plan on ever going back to the traditional gel filled implant or the Saline Implant. Good Luck
