Abstract

“Silicone breast implants are the most widely used medical devices for breast reconstruction and augmentation, and revision, but even after more than 60 years of use they are associated with multiple continued complications. Using advancement in current technologies, researchers are attempting to create an optimal implant surface for patients. Through these efforts, plastic surgeons and material researchers have made great progress in the field of implant research. Multimodal techniques for the functional modification of implant surfaces will contribute to further the development of ideal biomaterials useful in breast implants.
