Difference between Saline and Silicone Breast Implants in Thailand

Breast Implants in Thailand: If you’re a candidate for receiving Breast Implants, there are many decisions to be made. One of the most important decisions you will have to make is deciding between silicone and saline breast implants. There are positive and negative aspects to both, so it’s important to weigh all your options before making a final decision. 

In the wild world of plastics, saline and silicone usually trump. But there are a couple of significant differences. Both saline and silicone Breast Implants have an exterior silicone shell, however, the implants are different in material and consistency.

Saline Breast Implants

Saline Breast Implants is a mixture of salt and water placed inside a silicone shell at the time of surgery. They’re put in empty, and then filled once they’re in place. A saline implant requires a small incision because the shell is inserted into the breast area and then filled with saline once inside. Saline implants tend to look more stiff and unnatural than silicone implants, and have an increased tendency to create ripples and/or wrinkles on the skin.

Silicone Breast Implants

Silicone Breast Implants are pre-filled with silicone gel — a thick, sticky fluid that closely resembles the feel of human fat. Silicone breast implants are made with synthetic polymers. The incision for a silicone implant is larger than the incision for a saline implant because the silicone implant is filled before insertion into the body. Silicone implants have the look and feel of real breasts, and have a lower chance of creating ripples and/or wrinkles on the skin.


Saline breast implants are available to women over the age of 18, while silicone breast implants are available to women over the age of 22. The reason for this difference in age is women who choose Breast Augmentation should be ready both physically and emotionally. While there are 18-year-old women that are as informed as those who are older, the ruling is that from your 18th birthday until your 22nd birthday, you are only able to choose saline implants. Both saline and silicone are available for women of any age seeking breast reconstructive surgery.

What happens if an implant ruptures?

If an implant ruptures, the approach might vary depending on whether the implant is saline or silicone.

If a saline implant were to rupture, the implant would deflate, which causes the affected breast to adjust in size and shape. The leaking saline solution would be absorbed by your body without bringing on any health issues, but you’ll likely need surgery to remove the silicone shell. If you wish, a new implant can likely be inserted at the same time.

If a silicone breast implant ruptures, it may take you a while to notice and is likely to spread outside the breast and into lymph nodes, and it’s not pretty.  Studies haven’t found that this results in any increased risk of disease. Silicone tends to remain trapped in the fibrous tissue that grows around the implant. This is known as a silent rupture. A ruptured silicone implant may also cause breast pain.
