Celebrating 50 Years Of The Silicone Implant

50 years since their introduction, breast augmentation with silicone implants has seen numerous advancements and refinement that is worthy of taking note of. More so in fact when you consider the turbulent time that silicone implants have had over the years. Since the very first procedure, that took place in the 1960s and was performed on Timmie Jean Lindsey, the silicone implant has gone from strength to strength. Over 1.5 million women had had breast augmentation surgery in 2010 alone.

According to Lindsey, whom is now in her 80s, she thought her new breasts were 'perfect' as soon as she came out of surgery. Although, she admits that the full effects of the operation wasn't realized until men started paying her more attention in the street and whistling at her. No doubt many women who have undergone breast augmentation can relate to the self-confidence and self-esteem boost that such surgeries can give them. Furthermore, it is the second highest cosmetic surgery option to date, which is quite outstanding when you consider that this type of implant has weathered the years well and is still used today – not many medical devices can stake that claim.

Thanks to the perseverance of medical professionals who fought to keep the silicone implant on the market despite having many people calling for their removal, the silicone wonder is now made with better quality technology and understanding. This means that the risks of adverse effects has been greatly reduced. Furthermore, the clinical tests and research that has gone into ensuring patients receive, not only the best medical devices, but also the most natural and realistic results. It has helped alter the very shape of the silicone implant.

Thanks to recent studies, medical professionals such as mya.co.uk/cosmetic-surgery/breast-enlargement are now using form-stable, anatomically shaped implants instead of round, smooth ones. Quite simply, the modern day refined implants are more concerned with the shape in regards to a woman's anatomy, which in turn means they produce a much more natural outcome. Due to all this trial and tribulation, it's no wonder that the 50th milestone mark is being celebrated loud and proud by various people across the globe. Hopefully there will be many more years of celebrating the silicone implant as it continues to become a more refined and safer medical resource that changes women's bodies and lives for the better.
