Saline vs. Silicone (gel) implants

Davis Plastic Surgery offers patients the choice between saline and silicone breast implants.  People often ask “which is the best,” or “which is the safest,” looking for an easy and quick answer.  Luckily for everyone, both are FDA-approved, safe and natural appearing.  We will never push you towards one type over another as we have great success with both and it’s a very personal choice for the patient.

There is a cost difference between saline and silicone (silicone is more expensive due to the cost per implant,) and silicone is not always an option for an ‘armpit’ incision should you choose.  There are other slight differences between the two which our office is happy to discuss with you anytime.  Many of our staff members have had breast augmentation and are happy to share their experiences and opinions on the big implant debate 🙂
