Last year, there were 290,000 breast procedures performed in the United States. This makes breast implant surgery the current most commonly utilized cosmetic surgical procedure. The desire for enlarged breasts continues to lead the industry and has done so since 2006.

As with most surgical techniques, both silicone and saline breast implant surgery inherently come with their own benefits and drawbacks. Though silicone implants are said to have a more natural feel, the saline variety is easier to insert and less likely to cause complications.
