Becker implants are actually not available in the US, except for patients that already have them in place.  They are a combination of both saline and silicone.  The advantage is that the smaller silicone volume could still be placed through a periareolar (nipple) incision and the saline subsequently added.  The pain should be no different, but the devices come with different percentages of saline and silicone.  The more the saline component, they less they will feel and have the look of silicone.
