portada - WIREs Nanomedicine & Nanobiotechnology - Vol. 8; No. 2 (2016)This advanced review will discuss the history of implants used in breast reconstruction and augmentation, the most frequently performed plastic surgery today. Currently, only silicone rubber-based silica nanocomposite implants are available in the United States. The most prevalent issues involving breast implants include capsular contracture, gel bleed, implant rupture, and infection. The goal of this review is to survey the literature from the perspective of material science.
