Breast implant consists of an outer shell and a filling material which can be either silicone or salt water. It is the most common type of cosmetic surgery carried out in the UK. It is also known as breast enlargement, used to enhance size and shape of the breasts for cosmetic reason, which needs to be done privately. Some patients have breast implants to reconstruct the breast after a mastectomy (removal of the breast due to breast cancer), this can be done in the NHS. Each breast implant lasts about 10 to 15 years.
