Saline or silicone breast implants?

There are two main types of breast implants – saline (salt water-filled implants) and silicone implants.

Since the silicone controversy 20 years ago, silicone implants were removed from the market in the United States. However, there was never enough evidence for them to be removed from the market in the UK and most of Europe.

There have now been a number of very large studies showing no significant risks from silicone breast implants and they have now been allowed back into the United States.

In my opinion silicone offers better long term results with more natural feeling breasts and should be the first choice of breast implants for most people.
