Choosing the Best Implant for You: 3 Benefits of Saline Implants

Breast Implants Salt Lake CityIf you have decided to pull the trigger and get breast implants, you have a few decisions to make including the type of implant. With all three implant options available, we offer silicone, saline, and structured (ideal) implants— all of which come with unique benefits. To help you better decide on what type of implant is best for you, we will discuss the benefits of saline in this article.   We will discuss silicone implants in a future post.

Smaller Incision

Undergoing any surgery can be painful and requires a lot of recovery time. One of the biggest benefits of saline implants is that a smaller incision is made compared to silicone implants— meaning that you will have a smaller scar to worry about and conceal.

Natural Solution

If you are of the belief that everything you put in your body should be natural, then saline implants may be the best option for you. Because saline implants are comprised of a saltwater solution, they are considered to be natural— leaving you with more of a peace of mind if you happen to get a leak or rupture in your implant further down the line.

The Size Can Be Changed

One thing about saline implants that many of our patients are unaware of is that they are inserted into your body as empty shells and are then filled directly on site— meaning that it will give Dr. York Yates flexibility to adjust the size to make sure they are symmetrical.

As mentioned previously, there are pros and cons to every type of breast implant. A small incision, natural solution, and flexibility to change the size on the site are all three benefits of saline breast implants.
