The Breast Augmentation is a procedure that is performed to enhance the size and fullness of the breasts. Women seek out breast enhancement for a variety of reasons–for some women the breast augmentation is performed to correct a severe breast asymmetry, for others it may be performed to restore breast volume lost after weight loss or pregnancy, and for others it may simply be that they’ve always wanted larger breasts or breasts more in proportion to the rest of their figure. The breast enhancement is most often performed using either saline or silicone breast implants that come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and textures. The breast implants may be placed above or under the muscle.
There are pros and cons for both saline and silicone breast implants, but ultimately it is a personal decision. While there are many choices to consider in your breast augmentation journey, the most important decision you will make will be deciding on the right plastic surgeon. The right plastic surgeon will be able to help you make informed decisions for your personal best interest and will help ensure your safety and satisfaction with the procedure. Ideal candidates are in good health, non-smokers, with realistic expectations for the procedure and potential results.
