What’s the best type of implant for Breast Augmentation?

Breast Augmentation is a big decision and I want to make sure that I’m going with the best possible option. It sounds like silicone feel more natural, but saline are safer? Is there any reason to choose one over the other? I’m a little confused, so hopefully someone can help me understand! Thanks!

Hi.  There are so many options when it comes to breast implants.  The main categories are saline and silicone, and you are right, the silicone implants usually feel more natural.  Each type has its own set of advantages and disadvantages and each individual person must evaluate those qualities to see which implant will be best.  It is best to go for a consultation with a board certified PS, so that you can learn how each of the implants would work for you.  Then you can make an informed decision based on your specific needs and goals!  Best of luck!

Thank you for the question and at your consultation, after an examination, your surgeon will discuss the implant differences in the context of what might give you the best result
