Silicone Breast Implants are one of two of the most used options for increasing breast size, the other being saline filled breast implants. The different between silicone breast implants and saline filled breast implants is as much of personal preference as actual, technical difference. The silicone breast implant has a silicone out shell filled with a silicone gel. Most patients say the silicone gel has a softer, more natural breast feel than saline implants. If a silicone breast implant were to crack, leak or rupture, the gel will stay in the implant shell or the tissue pocket around the implant. To accurately diagnose an issue like this in a silicone implant, you will need an ultrasound or MRI.
Silicone breast implants are FDA-approved for women who are 22 years old and above.
