Saline implants: These contain salty water, and don’t feel as natural as silicone implants. They are also more likely to ripple (look wavy on the skin) and require replacement due to failure and leakage.
Silicone gel implants:
These have a soft, jelly-like filling that feels similar to natural breast tissue. They are not a liquid, unlike previous generations of silicone implants for breasts. If the implants do leak over time, the gel should stay together and is not dangerous or harmful to the woman’s health. Most patients in Australia (and around the world) choose silicone gel implants.
