Choosing the right breast implants is different for every breast augmentation patient because each patient has unique goals for their breasts. While the most popular breast implants in Bellevue are silicone gummy bear breast implants, many women seek out saline breast implants. When discussing the various implant options, patients sometimes ask, “Are saline implants hard?” Saline implants do have a firmer feel than silicone breast implants. Some women desire a firmer feel and are inclined towards saline implants. Saline implants should not feel overly hard just firmer than other breast implants. Often, women who already have plenty of breast tissue are better candidates for saline breast implants because the firmness feels more natural. The breast tissue also better disguises the breast implant and prevents rippling. Thinner women may not favor saline breast implants because they can feel more firm due to less breast tissue. While petite women can still achieve great results with saline breast implants, it is often recommended that women with volume loss or those with little breast tissue choose a silicone breast implant. For women who prefer the firmer feel or have significant breast tissue already, saline breast implants can offer a wonderful breast augmentation option.
