Saline breast implants are filled with a sterile saltwater solution similar to the fluid that is found in the human body. During surgery, saline implants are inserted without fluid. After the implant is placed, it is then filled to the predetermined size. The implant automatically seals itself with a revolutionary self-sealing valve once the fill-tube is removed. The Mentor® brand saline implants are available in a variety of sizes, shapes, and profiles to fit your body.
