What is the difference between saline-water and silicone-gel filled implants?

Silicone gel is a more natural texture than saline-water and better allows the implant to retain its shape. Breast implants leak and occasionally split over time. Whilst silicone gel is harmless to humans, it remains in the breast or sometimes moves towards the armpit. Saline-water is absorbed if it leaks from the implant.
