Chicago Breast Implants may be either Saline filled or made with Silicone gel. There are some basic differences between the two implant options. Saline implants may be pre-filled or filled after they have been inserted. On the chance a saline implant collapses, the saline will be absorbed and naturally removed from the body. A Silicone implant is generally found to feel more like breast tissue than a saline implant. Silicone implants do not collapse, but the implant could leak and the gel escape into the implant pocket. You must be 18 years of age and up for a Saline implant and 22 years of age and up for a Silicone implant. Both saline and silicone implants are FDA-approved.
