If you’re considering breast implants, you may have questions about saline breast implant overfill.
About Saline Implant Overfill
Many women turned to saline implants for breasts following well-publicized stories about problems that appear to have stemmed from silicone gel implants made by one manufacturer.
Saline implants do not contain any potentially harmful substances (and for the record, today’s silicone implants hold up to the FDA’s newer and stricter safety requirements). They generally feel more natural than silicone, adding to their appeal.
Saline implant manufacturers allow overfilling by up to ten percent to account for women who want more volume to better balance out height, or who simply want larger breasts. Some cosmetic surgeons also overfill to avoid ripples in the breasts.
