SILICONE VS. SALINE

SILICONE

Silicone breast implants have been evaluated and approved by the FDA. These implants have a thick outer shell and are filled with a thickened silicone center. Silicone implants tend to have a more natural feel as well as having less of a tendency to ripple.

SALINE

Saline implants have a silicone shell and are then filled with sterile saline. Saline implants can also give a natural look and are almost always placed below the muscle to help prevent rippling.

There are advantages and disadvantages to both implant types. Dr. Wright will work with you to help you discover which type is right your breast and body type. Everyones goals are different and we are committed to help you achieve yours.
