A saline implant is essentially a silicone pouch filled with saline solution. The saline solution is a salt water concentration quite like that found naturally in the human body. This is one of the biggest advantage of the breast augmentation using saline implant as if it rips open the saline solution is absorbed in the body harmlessly. This is unlike the silicone implants which if ruptures may not be detected for months or even years. Honolulu at Hawaii is one of the most popular destinations not just for tourist visits but also for the breast augmentation using saline implants done here.
Saline implants come in various shapes, sizes and textures. They are lighter then their silicone counterpart and provide a natural look to the augmented breasts.

A surgical procedure is required to place saline implants for breast augmentation and it is recommended that one goes to a certified cosmetic surgeon who is experienced and reputed. Usually the surgery may take between 2 to 4 hours and would require the use of anesthesia. There may be temporary swelling, bruising and numbness in the affected area and would require at least 2 weeks of recovery and patients are advised to wait for about 4-5 weeks before going back to their routine.
The cost of breast augmentation using saline implants would vary from state to state and also on the cosmetic surgeon performing the procedure, and this is also the case for breast augmentation with saline implants in Honolulu, Hawaii. An approximate cost is about $7,000-$9,000. It is vital to understand that the procedure of breast size enhancement through breast augmentation using saline implants is a surgical procedure that requires the efforts of a competent and experienced surgeon and also includes the pre and post operative care required for any other surgical operation.
In infrequent cases scarring, loss of sensation in the nipple and breast area, hardening of the implant occurs. The breast augmentation using saline implants may also deflate with wear and tear and would need to be replaced. Capsular Contracture is when tissue grows around the implant leading to its hardening; this can be a painful condition and would require the removal of the breast augmentation saline implant.
