The biggest difference is that the one contains saline, while the other is filled with a cohesive (solid jelly-baby type substance) silicone gel. The silicone gel implant is the favourite all the world over, because it appears and feels more natural than the silicone implant, which could ripple or be noisy, due to the water inside.

Your plastic surgeon will explain the difference to you at the consultation, and very often personal preference plays a very big role in the final decision. Even in America the majority of plastic surgeons prefer silicone implants.
