Chicago Saline Breast Implants At Midwest Plastic Surgery
Used for decades as an alternate choice to silicone gel implants in breast augmentation, saline breast implants are filled with sterilized salt water solution specifically designed to emulate the main fluid of our bodies. This makes saline breast implants very safe in the event of an implant rupture. In a deflated state, the saline implant is positioned in the surgical pocket, then filled to the preferred volume with saline solution. The implant has a self-sealing valve that closes and keeps the saline within the implant shell.
Implants with saline are not as natural feeling as those with silicone. They may feel firmer than a natural breast and may “ripple” in movement. However, saline breast implants are chosen for particular reasons. Some choose them due to a perceived safety aspect. They are also a less expensive alternative to silicone implants. In addition, saline breast implants allow for minor adjustments to balance asymmetry in cases of breast reconstruction. Some patients may prefer the firmer feel that saline breast implants prove when overfilled, though this option is recommended by the some manufactures and might void the warranty.
