Saline implants

  • They’re completely safe – Because saline implants are made from salt water solution, they’re completely safe in the event of a silent rupture. Ruptures can occur either when the implants are first being placed or after a certain number of years due to degradation. In either case, it’s reassuring to know that the solution inside the implants is completely harmless.
  • They’re cheaper – Saline implants usually work out around $1000 cheaper per pair when compared to silicone. This shouldn’t be a primary reason to get saline implants though, since there may well be more compelling reasons to opt for silicone. Your surgeon will be able to advise you best on this matter.
  • They’re suitable for use in women 18 years old or over – One of the biggest advantages of saline implants for very young women is that they can be used for women 18 years of age or older. To get silicone implants, you must be at least 22 years old.
  • Not as natural to the touch as silicone – Most women find that silicone implants feel more natural compared to saline. However this does depend on the type of saline implant that’s used, since IDEAL implants for example, provide a very natural look and feel.
  • Rippling can occur in slighter patients – Patients with a very thin build will sometimes find that rippling or folding can occur, although this is quite rare.

Each type of implant has pros and cons. Lets connect and choose a implant that suits your dreams and goals. The best results start with great communication!
