Want to celebrate the end of bikini season? According to The New York Timessome women are now opting for saline injections, which temporarily expand the breasts for about 24 hours. The injections were originally designed to show women what real breast augmentation surgery might look like.
The following is a list of local complications and adverse outcomes that occur in at least 1 percent of breast implant patients at any time. You may need non-surgical treatments or additional surgeries to treat any of these, and you should discuss any complication and necessary treatment with your doctor. These complications are listed alphabetically, not in order of how often they occur.
Spontaneous autoinflation of saline-filled breast implants is a rare phenomenon; only 20 cases have been reported in the world literature. Over the past seven years, three patients have presented with significant unilateral autoinflation of their smooth, single-lumen, round, saline-filled implants. This developed at various times: progressively over 23 years with a Simaplast implant; between the ninth and 10th year after augmentation with a leaflet valve implant; and slowly over the first four years with a leaflet valve implant.
Saline-filled breast implants contain a silicone outer shell filled with a sterile saltwater saline solution. Some are pre-filled and others are filled during the implant operation. Saline-filled implants come in different sizes and have either smooth or textured shells. The FDA approved saline-filled breast implants for breast augmentation in women age 18 or older and for breast reconstruction in women of any age.
It seems to be all the rage in New York these days. Saline injected directly into the breast tissue. So, why on earth would a woman have something like that done?
Saline breast injections are not breast augmentation. Instead, this new fad involves injecting saline fluid into the breasts for a temporary, hour enlargement effect. This use of injections is still awaiting FDA approval.

Breast augmentation can increase the volume of the breast in naturally small breasted women, can replace volume that was lost after breastfeeding or major weight loss, change the breast shape such as in tubular breastsand create better symmetry to the breasts if they are naturally different sizes or shapes. All breast implants have a shell made out of an inert polymer called silicone. The shell surface can be either smooth or textured.

Using an implant to rebuild the breast requires less surgery than flap reconstruction, since it only involves the chest area and not a tissue donor site. Still, it may require more than one procedure.
