Breast Implant Types

If you choose breast augmentation with implants, each implant type has its own pros and cons and will affect the overall cost of your procedure. There are several types of breast implants to choose from, including:


Implants are filled with sterile salt water. They create breasts with a uniform shape, firmness, and feel.

Structured Saline

It is also filled with sterile salt water. Additionally, these utilize an internal structure to give the breasts a more natural feel.


Implants are filled with silicone gel. The overall feel of this material more accurately mimics that of natural breast tissue.


These implants use an internal structure and are filled with a thicker, more viscous silicone gel. This gives the breast a firmer feel than with traditional implants.


These are also filled with silicone gel. They create a fuller appearance and can achieve more projection of the breasts than other implant types.


Silicone implants that provide the softest feel. They can also move with the implant pocket, allowing for more natural movement.


Implants with a textured surface allow scar tissue to develop and hold the implant more firmly in place.

Your goals for the surgery will help Dr. Williams determine what type of implant is most appropriate for you. Our priority will be on enhancing and augmenting your natural beauty in a way that is most safe and effective, while also fitting your personality and lifestyle.

Does Insurance Cover the Cost of Breast Implants?

In the vast majority of cases, breast implants fall into the category of elective procedures. This means that breast implants are NOT typically covered by insurance plans. However, there are some cases where implants may be considered reconstructive or medically necessary, and insurance may cover some or all of the cost. It is important to check with your insurance provider about your coverage options.
