Saline implants are still being used, perhaps nowhere in the world are they used more frequently than in the United States. However, implant options vary with patients’ body characteristics, their desired result, surgeon preferences, and other factors. There are a variety of safe, aesthetic options available to patients, the newer of which are the latest generation of silicone implants (All breast implants have a silicone elastomer shell), and possibly soon, anatomically-shaped, cohesive-gel implants. These implants are currently being reviewed by the FDA, and may add yet another new, safe option on the market for women in the US. Each type of implant has inherent risks and benefits, which should be explored before deciding which type is best for you—the way to do this is to schedule an appointment with a plastic surgeon who is well-versed in the different implant devices and proven surgical techniques.
