Saline versus Gel implants

This is common question I get from patients.  I empower the patient to select what would work best for them by providing a handout detailing the pros and cons of each type of implant.  In a nutshell, gel implants are more natural feeling and in appearance, wrinkle or ripple less, and will not deflate overnight.  They are also restricted to use in those older then 22 y/o.   Saline implants stand out and project more, are firmer to touch, and wrinkle more, in addition to their acute deflation when the shell is torn.  They both will make you fuller and larger.  I prefer gel implant myself but its really up to my patient to choose what will work best for her.
