What does the prosthetic breast implant look like

Manufactures of breast implants have photographs of their implants on their websites. You will find a plethora of options and to determine the ideal prosthesis for you would require a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon. Most surgeons will also have samples available that you can feel as well as see and many will have "sizers" that you can try on.
