Breast augmentation is one of the most common plastic surgery procedures performed in the United States. Women use breast enhancement to create a more proportionate figure, to enhance their breasts back to a previous size after pregnancy or weight loss, or to correct severe breast asymmetry. Breast enhancement is achieved through the use of breast implants or by fat transfer. Breast implants are filled with either a saline solution or a silicone gel and come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and textures. Implants are place either above or below the muscle through an incision that may be made in one or a few different placements. As you can see, there are a number of options that make each enhancement customized to each patient.
Breast augmentation can create significant and natural looking results on its own or it may be performed in combination with other procedures, most commonly paired with the breast lift.
