Breast implants are commonly used in cosmetic surgery to enhance the
appearance of the breasts, but they may also be used for reconstructive purposes after mastectomy or other breast surgeries. The implants come in different sizes and shapes, and the type of implant used will depend on the patient’s individual needs and preferences. The surgery to insert breast implants is typically performed under general anaesthesia and involves making incisions in the breast tissue to create a pocket for the implant. Recovery time can vary, but most patients are able to return to normal activities within a few weeks after surgery.
