Caption: Breast implant, with encapsulation. View of female breasts, showing the right breast (at left) fitted with a prosthetic implant. The implant may be silicone. Cosmetic enlargement with an artificial implant may be carried out to increase breast size. It may also follow surgery for removal of a breast tumour or cyst. Here, an internal scar (not visible) has formed around the implant (encapsu- lation) making the breast feel harder and lose its shape. External pressure on the breast to restore it's original shape or a further minor operation may be necessary.
