Saline Vs Silicone Implants: Getting Back to Basics

Breast LiftLife is full of options. You get to choose what you have for lunch, where you want to work, and nowadays, you can choose what you want to look like with the help of doctors like Dr. Gary J. Price. One of the options in particular that Dr. Gary J Price prides himself on is the different breast implant options that we offer at our office. Whether you want firm, soft, round, or teardrop shaped implants, we have several options for you to choose from with the help of Dr. Gary J. Price and our staff.


Saline implants are available to suitable patients over the age of 18 and are popular because they are filled with an all-natural saltwater solution. Unlike silicone implants, one of the unique things about saline implants is that they are filled up with the saline solution during the surgery— not beforehand— which helps give Dr. Gary J. Price a little bit more flexibility in the surgical process itself.


Silicone implants are available to patients who are over the age of 22. Silicone implants are popular amongst patients because they give a more natural look and feel than saline implants. Another benefit of silicone implants is that if the implant gets a rupture in it, they won’t collapse which gives patients more time to have it fixed without having to deal with too much embarrassment.

Just like with all things, there are pros and cons to both saline and silicone implants. During your initial consultation, we will help you decide what size, shape, and texture of implant is best for you and your body.
