Breast implants are one of the most regularly used prosthesis (both for cosmetic and reconstructive purposes) in plastic surgery. Unfortunately they are also one of the most controversial implants available and some types of breast implants have a reputation for being unreliable and in some cases dangerous. This book will discuss the history of this lucrative field and how it is developing. Part 1 provides an introduction to the field of cosmetic surgery and biomaterials used. Chapters in Part 2 discuss various types of implants such as silicone, saline and gel. The final set of chapters analyse retrieval analysis studies and failure modes.
