Breast enhancement without silicone and fewer scars (saline implants)
Women who are not satisfied with the size or shape of their breasts now have the options to achieve their dream figure. Breast enhancement procedures are now normal ways to deal with these problems.
There are two major types of breast enhancement surgery. The first one uses silicone breast implants while the other uses saline breast implants. Most patients find it hard to choose what procedure would give them the best result.
However, if you’re someone who doesn’t want many scars after the surgery, then having saline implants is highly suggested. What is the difference between silicone and saline breast implants? Both implants have silicone shells.
However, they differ when it comes to the contents of the shell. Because silicone implants come with pre-filled silicone gel that makes them larger in size, it also requires bigger incisions. The scars that you would get after the surgery depend on the size of the incision.
On the other hand, saline implant shells are first positioned in the ideal location before they are filled with a sterile and salty saline solution. Because of this, the surgeon only needs to create tiny incisions to each breast. Patients who opt to have saline implants will have smaller and even invisible scars.
Also, when a saline breast implant ruptures, there will be a decrease in the size of the breast as well as its contour. But you shouldn’t worry as the saline solution is not toxic. Your body will absorb and then excrete the saline solution in a natural way, without any risks or complications.
