The Plastic Surgery Center of Maryland, along with plastic surgeons around the world, quietly noted the 50th anniversary of Breast Implants this year. Improving on what nature gave women, the attempts to have better breasts actually started as far back as the 20thcentury.
Injecting paraffin into the breast was the attempt to boost breast size in the 1890s. While the goal was achieved, the downside to this procedure is the paraffin leaked throughout the body. This technique came to an early demise.
