Saline implants are filled with sterile salt water, which is easily and harmlessly absorbed by the body should the implant ever rupture. Saline implants are usually placed beneath the muscle (subpectoral placement) and usually require a shorter incision than silicone implants because they are filled after placement during your surgery. This results in a smaller scar, too. Saline implants all tend to look round and feel more stiff than natural breasts, especially in slender women with smaller natural breasts, and since saline is heavier than silicone gel, there is a higher risk of downward displacement, especially with larger implants.
