How Should I Choose Between Breast Implant Options?

Plastic Surgeons serving Denver, Littleton, and Surrounding Areas in Colorado


Saline vs. silicone breast implants” is a popular topic on plastic surgery discussion boards. You get plenty of results when you Google that term. But if you’re a Denver-area woman considering breast implants, you should consider your choice less about “silicone vs. saline” and more about finding the option that’s right for you.

Saline and silicone implants are both quite safe and they’re both quite effective. You’ll get larger, fuller, more attractive breasts with either option. So choosing between them is about knowing your goals and priorities, which is crucial for a breast augmentation.

If, for example, a more natural appearance is your highest priority, silicone implants are likely to be the best option for you. Silicone breast implants provide a subtler and more natural look, which is obviously important to many women.

On the other hand, if you’re concerned about post-operative scarring, you might be interested to know that saline breast implants require less trauma and leave less of a scar than silicone implants.

Our philosophy of plastic surgery has always been to listen to your priorities and design your procedure around them. This is especially true when it comes to a breast augmentation.
