The Board Certified plastic surgeons at Atlanta's Marietta Plastic Surgery can help you determine which breast typle of breast implant would be right for you.If you've already made the decision to have breast implant surgery, the next decision will be which kind of implant you'd like. Breast implants are used as a part of a breast augmentation procedure to make your breasts appear larger and create your desired amount of cleavage.

The two types of breast implants are silicone and saline. Each implant consists of an outer shell and the inner filling. In a silicone breast implant, the shell is silicone and the filling is a silicone rubber gel. Saline implants, on the other hand, have a silicone rubber shell and are filled with saline, which is simply a salt-water solution.

These are some of the differences between the types of implants:

  • Typically silicone implants have a more realistic feel and less risk of dimpling of folds
  • Saline implants may deflate  if a leak develops
  • Silicone implants may require an MRI to determine if a leak has occurred
