Research published in the July issue of The Breast Journal emphasizes that women who have breast implants and are diagnosed with breast cancer have the option of breast conservation, rather than just mastectomy.

Breast augmentation is rapidly becoming one of the most frequently performed cosmetic surgeries in the US with data showing a 460% increase in procedures from 1997-2005, according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
