Breast augmentation surgery involves using breast implants (silicon or saline) to increase the size of your breasts. Breast augmentation is clinically referred to as augmentation mammaplasty.
Breast augmentation can:
- Increase fullness and projection of your breasts
- Improve the balance of your figure
- Enhance your self-image and self-confidence
- Improve fit of clothing
Breast augmentation does not correct severely drooping breasts. If you want your breasts to look fuller and to be lifted due to sagging, a breast lift may be required in conjunction with breast augmentation. Breast lifting can often be done at the same time as your augmentation or may require a separate operation.
