Breast implants- whats the difference between Gel and Saline?

Im thinking of a Mommy make over from :
http://www.drbohley.com/specials.htm

The procedures plus saline implants is $11,965.00

The same procedure plus gel Implants is $12,665.00

Does anyone have either? Which one is better??

  • saline feels more "fake" is cheaper and better for your body actually so I would go with that... if for some reason the saline leaks it is 100% safe but if for some reason the silicone gel leaks... it can release toxins into your body and can even result in death...

    its all about preference... if you care about them feeling natural and are willing to take the health risk go with the silicone gel
    but if you dont mind the water feeling which is much safer I would go with saline....

    in my opinion, I would go with saline and have them placed UNDER the muscle... they will look and feel more real that way ;-)
