Breast augmentation is the most popular form of cosmetic surgery in the US today. Simply put, it increases the size of the breasts. It can be done in two ways — by placing fat taken from another part of the body in the breasts, or by inserting implants.
Breast augmentation, or breast mammoplasty, may be chosen by a woman with small breasts and large hips for better body symmetry.
Implants may help restore the upper body contours after a mastectomy.
Menopause can cause the breasts to lose their fullness, and breast augmentation can help recover their youthful shape.
The breasts become enlarged during pregnancy and breast feeding, then lose their fullness, and breast augmentation can also counteract this.
