What do breast tissue expanders look or feel like?

In brief: Depends

Silicone feel the most natural - saline has a slosh to them. They look like small bowls of fluid.
There is a distinct feel to breast implants - but often most people don't notice.

In brief: They are essentially

...Empty translucent rubbery balloons with a valve built into the wall that can been accessed through the skin with a needle to fill them with saline and gradually expand a new breast mound into being.
They usually feel quite firm while being expanded but newer techniques keep them soft once the permanent device is placed.
