MODEL RELEASED. Cosmetic breast surgery. Consultant showing a silicone breast implant to his patient. The piles of cash represent the cost of vanity. Silicone implants are used in cosmetic surgery to enlarge a breast or to restore breast shape after breast tissue removal for cancer. Synthetic silicone is widely used in implants in cosmetic surgery because it is resistant to body fluids, permeable to oxygen and not rejected by the body.
