The FDA approved the silcone gel implants in Nov. 2006 and they have been a hit ever since. Now women over the age of 21 have been able to get the implants they've been wanting for a long time. Silicone implants offer several advantages over saline breast implants, but they also have some disadvantages of their own.
1. Silicone implants have a more natural look and feel than Saline.
2. Rippling is far less likely to occur in women with Silicone implants than in women with Saline implants. This is because Silicone gel is far more viscous(thicker) than Saline, so it does not move or slosh, as Saline can.
3.Silicone implants can also be placed over the muscle in women with little body fat or little breast tissue withoutthe aesthetic concerns, for example rippling which is associated with Saline implants over the muscle in these women.
