Caption

Breast prostheses. Gloved hands holding silicone gel used in breast prostheses. 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.
