Saline implants are available for all patients who want breast
augmentation. They also are slightly less expensive than the other
implants. Also, many patients feel more safe with saline implants since
it's IV fluid they are filled with, instead of silicone gel. However,
saline implants have a higher rupture rate, and rupture is very noticeable
since the breast will deflate.

Also, rippling of the shell can be visible through the skin, especially in
thin patients or patients with stretched out breast tissue. Although many
patients have excellent results with saline, silicone implants look and
feel more natural. The advantage of smooth round silicone implants is that
there is such a large variety of sizes and shapes that they come in. Most
patients can find a size and a shape that will fit their tissues and give
them the result that they want.
