In brief: Material

Basically, saline in a bag and silicone in a bag.
Check the data on length of success and safety and compare. Also, look at follow-up options after failure. Good Luck. Suggest if you do it , then only do it for you -- not someone else -- your body.

In brief: Materials

Breast implants both have an outer silicone shell.
Saline implants are filled with sterile salt water. Silicone implants are filled with silicone gel. Hope it helps.
