Read about this procedure

Dr. Deborah Bash, Scottsdale, Arizona.

Transcribed from video attached:

All breast implants come with a silicone shell, so when we talk about the difference between saline and silicone implants, we’re really talking about what’s inside the implants. A saline implant is filled with water, or saline, which is actually salt-water. A silicone implant is filled with silicone jelly, but the shell of both of them is still a silicone shell. The real difference between them is just in how they feel. The silicone feels a little bit more natural than the saline implants, but both of them have pros and cons. This is something you can discuss with your surgeon and find out which works best for you.
