What is breast augmentation?
Breast augmentation is a plastic surgery procedure performed to enlarge the breasts and to potentially improve the shape of the breasts.
Why have breast augmentation?
Common reasons to perform breast augmentation include:
For enhancement of body contour in women who feel that the breast size is too small.
To correct the loss in breast volume and restore a better shape to the breasts after pregnancy.
To balance asymmetrical breast size, when there is a significant difference between the breasts.
Replacement or exchange of breast implants for cosmetic reasons.
As a reconstructive procedure for various breast conditions.
Three major groups of women consider augmentation:
Women who had little to no breast development
Women who lost their breast size and shape after child birth
Women who want to improve their breast for other personal reasons, such as, asymmetry and difficulty in finding clothes that fit well
