    It is 50 years since the first breast enlargement using silicone implants. Today it rates as the second-most popular form of cosmetic surgery worldwide, undergone by 1.5 million women in 2010.

    It was spring 1962 when Timmie Jean Lindsey, a mother-of-six lay down on the operating table at Jefferson Davis hospital in Houston, Texas.

    Over the next two hours, she went from a B to a C cup, in an operation that made history.

    “I thought they came out just perfect? They felt soft and just like real breasts,” says Lindsey now aged 80.

    “I don’t think I got the full results of them until I went out in public and men on the street would whistle at me.”

    Though the operation boosted her self-confidence – and she enjoyed the extra attention – she had never planned to have a breast augmentation.
