Caption: Breast prostheses. Gloved hands pulling silicone gel from a breast prosthesis. Complete implants are seen below the hands and at lower right. These are surgically placed inside breasts to enlarge them or to restore their shape after a partial mastectomy to treat cancer. Silicone is used in implants as it is resistant to body fluids, permeable to oxygen and not rejected by the body.
