Silicone Implants

  • A natural look and feel – One of the main reasons that many women opt for silicone implants when having breast augmentation surgery is because they provide a more natural feel when compared to standard saline implants. They also provide a natural look with proper placement.
  • Not as prone to leaking or rippling – Because of the cohesive nature of the silicone gel that’s used to fill silicone implants, they are not as prone to leaking or rippling as saline implants are.
  • You may not be aware if they rupture – The gel that’s used to fill silicone implants is cohesive, which means they’re good at retaining their shape but if they were to rupture, you may not be aware of it. This is why women who get silicone implants are recommended to have an MRI once every three years to check for leakage.
  • They are more expensive – Silicone implants are usually more expensive than saline. Although many people opt for financing when getting breast augmentation, the added cost is still something that’s worth taking into account when making a decision.

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!
