Thoughts on choosing between Saline VS. Silicone
For women choosing breast augmentation who already have a modest amount of normal breast tissue and subcutaneous fatty tissue, either type of implant will normally be very satisfactory and often almost undistinguishable. This also applies to women desiring a very minimal augmentation.
For women choosing breast augmentation who are relatively thin or have relatively little breast tissue, sub muscular placement can greatly minimize the undesirable properties of the saline implant. This is why sub muscular placement is virtually always used in patients who have had mastectomies undergoing reconstruction even with silicone gel filled implants.
For women choosing breast augmentation who are extremely thin and with minimal breast tissue the silicone gel filled implant has a number of advantages particularly when it comes to the issues of rippling and “natural feel”. These implants may be placed sub muscular or under the breast tissue at the discretion of the surgeon.
