Saline to silicone breast implants.
Upgrading from saline breast implants to silicone breast implants is a common reason for exchanging breast implants. While saline breast implants can result in excellent outcomes for most patients, some women become concerned that these breast implants feel firmer and less “natural” than natural breasts. Saline breast implants also can predispose to “ripples” that can be seen and felt at the sides of the breasts. Rippling can be corrected by changing saline breast implants to FDA-approved silicone gel-filled breast implants, which are softer and more natural than saline implants.
Silicone breast implants in Baltimore.
Our advice for patients that want the “most natural” breast augmentation is silicone gel-filled breast implants. Saline and silicone breast implants may experience leaks at the external shell, which would prompt a breast implant exchange. Leaks are usually due to “wear and tear” and are more likely in older implants. When a saline breast implant leaks it becomes completely deflated and requires replacement to restore a normal appearance. Silicone breast implant ruptures are less obvious, but should also be exchanged for optimal results.
