Yes, there are two choices, saline or silicon, however there are many different shapes as well.
When I got my first breast aug procedure, my doctor said it like this....they are both completely safe, it is a matter of preference. He said how active are you, if you fall, are you a paranoid person, will you be worried about a leak...?
He said that you could have a slow leak for awhile with the silicon implants and not know it, although the leak is not harmful, just inconvenient. With saline, if the implant ruptures, you will know right away.
I chose saline under the muscle, a full C. However, 3 yrs after the procedure, I also was noticing how unnatural mine appeared to those who had the silicon.
I went back to a plastic surgeon in San Francisco and had them redone using silicon, huge difference!!!!!!! They use the Natrelle Collection which allows you to customize your implants. If you live in my area, you have to check them out, you want to use your money wisely and get it right the first time. I regret not doing more research, I paid for it, literally. :)
