Saline implants are made of a silicone shell filled with a sterile saltwater solution. Since they can be filled after insertion, Dr. Passaretti can use a variety of incision techniques to place saline implants. He may recommend a small incision around your nipple, or in your armpit, navel, or the crease below your breast.
Once it is inserted, he will then fill the shell using a tube, which means the implants' size can be adjusted during surgery for a more even, symmetrical appearance. If your saline implant ruptures, your body will simply absorb the saline solution, which is harmless. Women who opt for saline implants usually heal more quickly from surgery, and total treatment cost is typically lower.
