Question: Is there a texture difference between the two that makes one more desirable then the other? Dr. Gail Lebovic: Well, some people believe that it's the implant that makes the breast feel a certain way after augmentation but in reality and I have done many augmentations and I have seen many women who have them and reality the most important thing is how the surgery is done and were that implant is placed. The implant is underneath the muscle, it's much more difficult to feel the difference between a saline and a gel implant, so you can get excellent results with saline implants as long as you're placed underneath the muscle.
