An implant is a prosthesis used to alter the size and shape of parts of the body. The most common area to have an implant are the breasts, other areas include the chin, buttocks, chest and calf.

Implants can be silicone or saline filled and are contoured to suit body shape and characteristics. The surface of implants can be smooth or textured. Textured implants provide a surface to encourage tissue to integrate with the implant and prevent slipping.

When considering implants, Mr Banwell will discuss the choice available and what is most suitable.
