Since today’s implants come in a variety of different shapes and sizes, patients must decide between saline or silicone, smooth or textured, round or anatomic, and a host of varying breast implant surgery alternatives.
The new generation of silicone breast implants, which emerged over the last decade, is less apt to develop slow leaks or bleed. These gel implants made of silicone have a more natural consistency, which is why they are utilized significantly more than their saline counterparts for breast implant surgery. However, they do require larger incisions, since they are prefilled rather than filled after insertion as with saline.
