Saline Breast Implants Palm Desert CAContact us TodaySaline breast implants have been used for many years as an alternative to silicone gel filled breast implants. These implants are filled with a sterile saltwater solution formulated to be similar to the fluid that makes up the human body, making it very safe if an implant rupture occurs. Saline implants are placed in the desired surgical pocket deflated and then using a fill tube, Dr. Q will fill the implant to the desired volume, remove the tube then leaving the self-sealing valve to close and keep the saline in the implant.
Saline implants do not feel as natural as silicone filled implants, often feeling firmer and having a greater chance of “rippling”, but patients or physicians may chose these for a number of reasons including their perceived safety factor, the reduced cost, the ability to perform minor adjustments to compensate for asymmetry, for breast reconstruction and for patients who desire a highly firm feel by overfilling the implants, which may not be recommended by the manufacture and could void the warranty.
