The newest, smooth, round, highly cohesive silicone gel-filled implants are the best implants currently available. There are many variables that impact how “natural” your implants will look such as your current breast size, the amount of subcutaneous fat on your chest, the size/projection of the particular implant that is placed, whether the implant is placed above or below your pectoralis major muscle, etc. Any qualified Plastic Surgeon will discuss all of these issues with you after performing a thorough physical examination.
Most people feel that silicone implants feel more natural than Saline implants particularly if there is very little tissue covering the implant. The look however is usually very similar except that in patients with very small amounts of tissue covering the implant, Saline implants may show rippling while silicone implants generally do not
I feel that silicone high profile gels look and feel the most natural
So much depends on the original appearance of your breasts. The less natural tissue you have, the more obvious it will be that you have implants. The same applies to size. The bigger the implant, the more obvious and unnatural it will appear.
Silicone gel implants usually feel more like breast tissue.
You really have to discuss this with your surgeon because how he/she does the operation and how you heal also can make a big difference when it comes to how “ natural” you will look after surgery.
For each woman, it is very important to select the implants that best fit your frame and body. Size, shape, position, pocket, and implant fill all influence the naturalness of the new breasts. This is the “secret of breast augmentation.”

I personally prefer high profile implants as they look natural and show the least rippling.
