I have finally decided on where I am going for my Mommy Makeover. Saline or Silicone?

Saline Vs Silicone
Your Plastic Surgeon will be able to provide you with some pros and cons for either. The cost could vary between them. Many patients feel that silicone gel implants move/feel more natural and show less rippling. Both are considered safe. I recommend that you go with whatever choice makes you more comfortable.
All the best

Saline versus silicone implants and mommy makeovers
All implants can safely help create a lovely breast shape and make patients very happy. What I learned from my patients who have experienced both saline and silicone implants, silicone implants feel better for the patient. Patients report that their silicone implants feel less heavy and more natural compared to saline. For the person examining the breast there might be no difference, but the experience of the patient seems far more important in terms of feeling. I am a very big fan of the new cohesive silicone implants which are solid, unlike the older liquid generation of silicone implants which could leak silicone into breast tissue. Silicone implants feel less heavy and are very safe. Having said that, I always recommend following the suggestion of the surgeon you choose to trust. The personal expertise of an individual surgeon will sometimes favor one technique over an other. For my mommy make over patients, I recommend new generation cohesive gel implants, a short scar and drain free tummy tuck for safety, ease of recovery, and appearance of the final result. Hope this helps!
