Saline vs. Silicone Breast Implants

Safety is paramount for every plastic surgery procedure, no matter if it’s a simple Botox injection or silicone breast implants. At Aristocrat Plastic Surgery & MedAesthetics, we care about providing the patients the best and the safest product when it comes to breast augmentation. But, sometimes there are other factors to consider, like the price of a particular product. Some patients can’t afford the best breast implants brands, so in their case the choice, as hard as it may be, should be the affordable breast implants types.

Silicone Breast Implants

“What is the chance of rippling in saline implants? I can’t afford silicone. I am size 34ab, 122lbs and 5″4. My doctor didn’t help me with the choice as much as I wanted him to. My surgery is Oct 25. Silicone are 2k more than saline.”, a RealSelf user asked.

“Thank you for your question and appropriate picture. The main advantage of silicone implants are the feel and decreased chance of rippling compared to saline implants. Having said that, if you don’t plan on being much larger say full B cup, then the ratio of your breast tissue to implant is still favorable and you’ll have a great result in terms of look and feel. You should discuss this with your surgeon again and weigh the risks and benefits. In terms of costs it may be worthwhile to spend more on silicone implants. In my practice, non anatomical silicone breast implants are ~1k more for the cost of the implants. Best of luck.”, highly respected plastic surgeon in New York, Dr. Kevin Tehrani replied.

Silicone Breast Implants or Saline Breast Implants
