Orange County Breast Augmentation Patients Weigh Saline and Silicone Implants

Orange County Breast Augmentation Patients Weigh Saline and Silicone Implants


When choosing implants for breast augmentation, Orange County plastic surgeon Milind K. Ambe’s patients have the choice between silicone and saline implants. Dr. Ambe is dedicated to helping patients make the right decisions based on accurate information.

Saline implants are filled with sterile saline solution, and typically the implant is filled after it is inserted into the body during a breast augmentation. This type of implant is available to women ages 18 and older who are having the procedure. In the past, they were criticized for having an unnatural feel; however, modern surgical techniques which place the implant behind the chest muscle are helping them to feel more natural.

Silicone implants are filled with a silicone gel. This feels much more like human fat, giving the new breasts a more natural feel. They are available to women ages 22 and older.

Although both types of implants are capable of rupturing, this is becoming less of a problem as technology improves. To be safe, the FDA recommends women who have Newport Beach breast augmentation surgery with silicone implants monitor their implants every two to three years using a routine MRI to rule out leaks.
