Increases or restores breast size
Breast augmentation is one of the most frequently performed cosmetic surgery procedures in the U.S. It can give women with small or unevenly sized breasts a fuller, firmer, better-proportioned look through the placement of implants in the breast. Women may elect to undergo breast augmentation for many different medical and aesthetic motivations, including balancing breast size and compensating for reduced breast mass after pregnancy or surgery. Breast enlargement may be combined with other procedures such as a breast lift for more satisfying results, liposuction, abdominoplasty, or almost any other aesthetic surgery procedure
Breast implants are silicone shells filled with either saline (salt water) or silicone gel (recently approved by the FDA). They are placed behind each breast, underneath either breast tissue or the chest wall muscle. Breast augmentation procedures last one to two hours and are typically performed with general anesthesia. After breast enhancement surgery the patient’s bustline may be increased by one or more cup sizes.
