All breast implants are made of a round or shaped silicone elastomer or rubber shell. When having breast augmentation with saline breast implants, a saline solution is used to fill the breast implant. Saline solution is used as it is similar to the fluid in our body, and would simply be absorbed by your body should the breast implant leak or break.
