saline implantDescription: Saline implants are filled with salt water instead of silicone. When touched they feel like a water balloon. They move with the body and can work with gravity to fill out the lower part of the breast over time, so they look more natural.

How it's done: A small incision is made, usually under the breast, and the implants are inserted. Saline implants require a much smaller incision than silicone implants. You will undergo a consultation before surgery to determine the size and shape of your implants, as well as to determine where the surgeon will make the incision.

Complications: As with all implants, there is a risk of capsular contracture. Rippling of the skin is more likely with saline implants, and if they puncture or rupture, they lose their shape more rapidly. As with all invasive surgery, infection, loss of sensation, and scarring at the incision site are all possible complications.

Recovery: Six weeks.

Prices: Start at $6500.
