A recent published study in the Journal Cancer reports that women who received silicone implants after her mastectomy were generally happier with her results than women who chose saline implants. This is one of few studies who report on patient preference following reconstructive surgery.

This study looked at 472 women who had breast reconstruction following mastectomy – 176 women stated that they were more pleased with the look and feel of her silicone implants. They also reported that they felt more natural to the touch and preferred the look both in and out of clothing. Insurance reimbursement is equal for either silicone or saline implants and their is no financial incentive benefit either way.
