What type of implant is best: silicone or saline?
During your consultation, we will also discuss whether silicone or saline implants are right for you. Silicone implants come in pre-filled sizes, whereas saline implants are filled with saline after they are inserted. Because saline implants are filled after placement, they typically require a smaller incision.
Each type of implant has pros and cons, which we will talk about during your consultation for breast implants in Houston. Silicone implants have a more natural shape, bounce, look, and feel when compared with saline implants. Most women prefer the natural feel of silicone, as it more closely resembles the weight and softness of natural breast tissue. Dr. Lind uses gummy bear silicone implants by Allergan®. These implants have three different levels of gel cohesivity (gumminess), allowing even more customization of your breast augmentation procedure.
