Caption

Breast prosthesis. Composite image of a blue silicone implant in a breast. Implants such as this 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.
